The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is the best device till date in the Note series, and the company keeps upping the quality standards with every iteration. The Galaxy S7 launch happened a couple of months ago, and the S7 and S7 Edge have already become a success. However, we are now waiting for the next big release from the company- the Samsung Galaxy Note 6.
Considering how awesome the Note5 is, it is natural to have higher expectations of the Note 6. So let’s bring together all the info we have on the Note 6 and see whether the Note5 will get a worthy successor.
Galaxy Note5 vs. Galaxy Note 6
Before we start, do note that everything we say about the Note 6 right now is either a rumor or our guess made from the available facts. Nothing has been confirmed by Samsung officially, so take the rumors with a proverbial grain of salt.
Don’t Expect Any Major Design Changes
If you take a look at the Galaxy S7, you will see the design hasn’t changed much and is essentially the same as the Galaxy S6. Of course, the body is now more polished and the device is much more improved, but we will see a new design only with the S8.
Similarly, no major design overhauls are expected with the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, so it will look almost the same as the Note5 except some small changes or possibly a new color scheme.
New Processor and More RAM + Storage
The Galaxy Note5 gets 4 GB of RAM and storage variants ranging from 32 GB to 128 GB. It is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 7420 CPU. But with the Galaxy Note 6, Samsung will have to set the bar higher to bring in more sales and to differentiate the device from the Note5.
Rumors say that the Note 6 will come with 6 GB of RAM and will offer storage options of up to 256 GB. It is also being said that the microSD slot might return to the Note series, just like it did with the S7. Also, the Note 6 will be powered by the Exynos 8890 and/or Snapdragon 820/825 processor.
Less Megapixels But Better Quality
The Note5 has got a good 16MP rear camera, but it is being said that the Galaxy Note 6 will come with a 12MP camera instead. It might be the same camera as the one in the Galaxy S7, which is a 12MP snapper but takes excellent low-light photos due to the larger sensor size. It’s better than the 16MP sensor found in the S6 and Galaxy Note5.
We have very limited information about the Galaxy Note 6 right now. But even then we can be very sure that the Note 6 will be much better and more advanced than the Note5 and definitely worth upgrading.
