Gone are the days when a manufacturer could design and develop a new smartphone or tablet behind closed doors without the whole world seeing just what was coming before it was finally unveiled. That’s definitely the case with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 6, which may still be months away from an official introduction, but has supposedly shown up in benchmark test already. As you might expect, a screenshot from those alleged benchmark tests have managed to spread on the world wide web giving us a hint of what we can supposedly expect when Samsung does finally go public with the hardware later this year.
Fans of the Galaxy Notes series of devices will be excited to see what Samsung could be bringing with the next device iteration. If the screenshot of the alleged benchmark is anything to go by, then it looks as though the sixth-generation Note will carry the SM-N930F model number and come equipped with the same Exynos 8890 chipset that is found in Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 flagship. However, it’s the additional revealed specifications that will raise some excitement levels for those looking forward to the new Note hardware.
Before moving forward with the mouth-watering specs found in the benchmark leak, be advised that the screenshot has been leaked by someone claiming to be a Samsung employee, and there’s not much reason to believe that the screenshot is actually legit and reflective of what the Note 6 could be packing.
So, in addition to the Exynos 8890 chipset, the leaked information reveals that Samsung could be looking to ship the Note 6 with a whopping 6GB of RAM, a spec that has been speculated earlier as well. The Korean company will continue to stick with the Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display panel setup that has been seen in the Galaxy Note 5, shunning the move across to a 4K experience.
The benchmarks also indicate that the sixth-generation Note’s display could be slightly larger at 5.77-inches over the previous 5.7-inch display that Samsung bundled into the Note 5.
Some of the information shown in the leaked screenshots does tie in with previous speculation that we’ve already been privy to relating to the Note 6, but of course as mentioned earlier, there’s the potential that the outlined benchmarks are entirely fake and clutching at straws with no real indication of the true specification. We will just have to wait until Samsung makes it all official.
Till then, what do you think? Will Samsung treat its phablet with a larger display and a whopping 6GB of RAM? Let us know in the comments section below.
