Aside from various other rumors about the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 6, there is a more recent rumor going around that the upcoming phablet will be almost as powerful as a fully fledged laptop. This may actually turn out to be true but we will just have to wait and see how potent the Snapdragon 823 actually is or if it really is going to power the Note 6.
It would also be exciting to see if the USB Type-C port finally makes its appearance on the Samsung device or whether the Korean company sticks with the tried and tested older micro-USB ports. However, the next iteration of the Samsung Gear VR is rumored by SamMobile to be waterproof, dustproof and sport a USB Type-C port, so it would only make sense if the Note 6 also comes with the same USB technology.
One of the most interesting rumors by Android Geeks hint at an infrared-autofocus based camera with the same 12-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilization and f/1.7 aperture as the S7. Apparently, whether it will be used in the final device or not is yet to be decided. GizmoChina added an extra rumor to the mix, but this one is about an early release date. According to them, Samsung will do what they did it with the S7 and release the Note 6 in August before its expected release date. Some are of the opinion that the release may even happen as early as July, pitting it head to head against the iPhone 7.
The rumored specifications of the Galaxy Note 6 are well known to fans by now but just in case you are not familiar with them yet, here is what we know so far.
SoC - Qualcomm Snapdragon 823/Exynos
Display - 5.8" curved/flat Super AMOLED at 1440p resolution
RAM - 6GB
In-built memory - 256GB
Battery - 4,200 mAh

If you're still wondering when to expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on store shelves in your particular country, this is clearly for you. The Korean company has posted an image of a map with a release timeline attached to it on its Facebook page.
By quickly scanning it, you'll be able to know whether you'll see the Note 4 in your country by November 5th, or if you'll have to wait some more.
It is true however that in some territories those dots are very much obscuring the places they're on top of, so for certain countries the Note 4's release date may still require a guessing game. And it doesn't help that some of the dots have incredibly similar colors.
On the other hand, it appears that Canada will get it on October 17th. For the UK, we might be looking at October 10th as the launch date, while most of Western Europe should have it available a week later, on October 17th.
