Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to Be Dust and Water Resistant?

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 has been a successful device for the company, which is why the expectations for Samsung Galaxy Note 6 are much higher. Rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 6 will get a whopping 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage (may go up to 128GB), a 12MP rear camera (possibly the same as the Galaxy S7), a 5.8-inch display (possibly QHD).

Now a new rumor that is circulating on the web these days says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be dust and water resistant. Sammobile reports that the phablet will be IP68 certified, which means it will be water tight and will also keep away dust from entering the device. Just like the Galaxy S7, it will be able to keep itself safe inside 1.5m of water for 30 minutes.

The report also suggests that the Galaxy Note 6 might get an iris scanner as well. That’s something we haven’t seen in a lot of smartphones and is surely a feature that will become a standard like fingerprint sensors once all manufacturers start adopting it. It is also being said that the Note 6, unlike the Note5, will be sold in Europe too.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 launch date is rumored to be in June, but if going by Samsung’s traditional schedule for launching Note devices, August-September looks like a great timeframe.
