Galaxy Note 6 ‘Lite’ rumored to be a cheaper variant of Samsung’s next flagship

Samsung is due to unveil its next flagship phablet in a couple of months and we’ve already started seeing rumors and leaks about the Galaxy Note 6. The latest rumor isn’t about the flagship rather it’s about a potentially cheaper variant of the Galaxy Note 6. Said to be called Galaxy Note 6 “Lite,” it may come with slightly different specifications but at a more affordable price point.

The Galaxy Note 6 is rumored to feature the as yet announced Snapdragon 823 processor with 6GB RAM and this rumor claims that the Lite variant will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 coupled with 4GB of RAM. It may also save money in the display department by going for full HD and not a Quad HD display even though it’s rumored to be a 5.8-inch display on both variants. All of the other specifications are expected to remain the same. Since this is just a rumor right now do take this information with a grain of salt. It doesn’t really seem plausible that Samsung will do this, and even it does, this variant might not make it out of select markets in Asia. There is no conclusive evidence yet to support the theory that a Galaxy Note 6 Lite is in the pipeline as well.

Why not make this cheaper variant with removable battery?

I would love a phone like that. Mid-range specs (very high mid-range, that is) combined with the note’s pen, big screen and functionality would be a prefect device.

Provided it’s got a proportionate price tag, of course.

Who wants a noteand need a note buys the best.
For me there is only one note the highline of the phones.
I definitely will buy the best.
And don’t need i lite version, for less 100 150 bucks, for that people buy a s7.

I think samsung should concentrate more on updates rather than producing so called FLAGSHITS and new series of GALAXIES.

If Samsung changes the Note name to Note x Lite I will discontinuing buying the Note series. Unless it’s a secondary variant and there will be the exclusive and highly developed Note 6 as I’ve been hearing.

Great another model when is Samsung will stop fragmenting Android is it not enough having tons of CSC of the same hardware and then fragmenting the same hardware with lite/neo/mini

After having not received and still waiting for an update for my Note 4 and not knowing when or even if it will be updated. There’s no way in hell I will touch another samsung device.

It’s funny that full HD display, 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 820 is considered Lite.

For me it’s plausible since the S-Pen is a Must for many potential users and it will make Samsung smartphone more visible in reunion, bus, metro, etc.

S-Pen is a free add for Samsung’s Smartphones when ever used in public.

They should make this Lite variant and give it a flat screen. I think the actual Note 6 should be a curved edge style device. I love it on the S6 Edge+ jus wished it had an S Pen

Samsung stop releasing mid-range tablet, release the note 10.1 2016..The 2014 version is very legendary with outstanding battery endurance, still your best tablet til date but unfortunately very little support, it quickly went out of stock in my country and was never restocked, release the 2016 version, with even more powerful specs, the display on the 2014 version is still too brilliant but 4k on a tablet wont be bad..There is no competition with the tablet variant of the note, the spen is highly useful there..enough with these small notes, the best is not very useful on that tiny screen,… Read more »
