Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Revealed: Move Over iPhone7, Famed Leaker Drops Major Changes In Galaxy Note 6 [VIDEO]

Close

Move over iPhone 7! Could it be over with Apple? Well, as the headlines suggest, the recently leaked details of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 6 beat more of the latest Apple iPhone. However, it would have been too early to say so.

Conversely, uSwitch's Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks), famed leaker, has revealed five detailed peeks to the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 major changes:

1. Edge Display

Starting with the scene stealer, the Note 6 is adopting the iconic curved "Edge display" from Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ of 2015 and 2016's Galaxy S7 Edge. Samsung indeed has the slump on Apple's 2017 iPhone, Forbes reported.

2. Iris Scanner

The Galaxy Note 6 will be featuring multiple sensors in the top bezel. This will allow users to unlock the phone just by directly looking at it. If this works out, it might end the debate over whether the fingerprint sensor is on the front or back as it would not be necessary at all, uSwitch pointed out.

3. USB Type-C

Samsung is joining its rivals by incorporating USB Type-C on its Galaxy Note 6 and other 2016 flagship phones. This single connector can power phones, laptops, tablets, printers, monitors and more.

4. Fatter Phone, Massive Battery

Samsung is continuing a welcome trend and will make the Galaxy Note 6 slightly thicker for about 7.9mm to house a much larger battery. In the recent past, Samsung already did this with Galaxy S7. There will be a tiny increase in girth which will make Note 5's 3000 mAh battery massively increased up to 4200 mAh in Galaxy Note 6. Alas would still be not removable but surely all day stamina plus fast wired and wireless charging will make it more likeable.

5. Larger Memory

Samsung's Galaxy Note 6 will cater 50% more RAM by upping it to 6GB and will offer both microSD expansion and internal memory of up to 256GB to match the iPhone 7. This could be a dramatic spin compared to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge which were retailed only with 32GB of internal storage in the west, Forbes added.

Tentatively...

We are not counting this one to the changes, although it is still far from guaranteed, Note 6 will carry on IP68 water resistance and that it might even be called the Galaxy Note 7, OnLeaks said.
