We have here renders of the Galaxy Note 6, possibly the most accurate look we can get before the official launch.
Sourced for uSwitch, Steve Hemmerstoffer AKA OnLeaks of Nowhereelse.fr, has created a first look at Samsung’s next phablet device the Galaxy Note 6. The blueprints reveal a device that is strikingly similar to the S7 edge, with a slot for a stylus pen.
However a major difference is seen at the bottom of the render, revealing the Note 6 could potentially be the first Samsung device to adopt USB-C. It’s happening, USB-C is slowly creeping into major devices and with the biggest manufacturer in the world getting on-board, you can bet your bottom dollar other manufacturers will follow suit, fast.
USB-C is inevitable, it’s a step up in smartphone technology with faster charging, transfer speeds and convenient double-sided plug.
The Note 6 is expected to extend past the minimum 5.5-inches required to be a phablet. According to uSwitch we should expect either 5.7-inches or 5.8-inches. The current Note 5 is 5.7-inches.
On the front of the device there is a plethora of sensors, one of which could potentially be an iris scanner to read biometric information. Which can be used to unlock your device or even purchase things (that’s getting ahead of ourselves).
Other rumours are citing a 4,000mAh battery, upgraded from 3,700mAh. The excellent camera we saw on the S7 edge will apparently make its way to the Note 6. More S7 edge features will apparently appear, remember water-resistance? That’s right, you might be able to take selfies in the pool with the Note 6. While the S7 features are great, it’d be a shame to see Samsung not try to give the Note 6 more of an edge (sorry), over the S7.
Our other favourite leakster Evan Blass tweeted we are “almost exactly two months away” from the Note 6 launch. His tweets carry weight, due to the accuracy of his information.
We’ll know more in the coming months, in the mean time, enjoy this fancy video showcasing the Note 6 renders.
