Rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 6 specs reiterated: 6GB RAM, 5.8-inch screen
Although it’s a little early to have any sort of guarantees regarding Samsung’s “next big thing”, even if we choose to believe its speculated mid-July ETA, the list of main Galaxy Note 6 features is slowly but steadily coming together.
Thanks to a screenshot of a popular CPU identification tool called CPU-Z, we now have “confirmation” the SM-N930F will offer a massive 6GB RAM for heavy multitaskers. Additionally, the leak suggests the GNote 6 shall sport a 5.8-inch display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution (Quad HD), as well as 32GB internal storage, and an Exynos 8890 processor.
If you feel like the SoC raises a red flag, being the same make and model as the one inside the Galaxy S7, you may want to remember Samsung pulled a similar move last year. Namely, both the GS6 and Note 5 packed Exynos 7420 punch.
Instead, what we consider a big red flag is the amount of user-available memory, out of the 5730MB total. Only 2.8 gigs? That’s unacceptable, and if this doesn’t prove to be fake, something must be done about TouchWiz’s ridiculous RAM consumption. Granted, we don’t reckon we’ll need the full 6GB accessible in the fall, but at least 4 would be nice.
The same goes for the 15.50GB out of 32 available storage, though microSD support should help take the sting out of that compromise. The alleged “Samsung employee” that supplied this screenshot to the press also claims the slightly thicker than Note 5 Note 6 will haul a 3,700 mAh battery, resisting water and dust interaction, just like other sources alluded a little while back.
