Till now, the rumor mill has produced news that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will feature 6GB of RAM, a 5.8-inch touchscreen (mostly probably keeping the QHD resolution), a 12 MP primary snapper, and 64 or 128GB of storage space (might go up to 256GB).
Recently another update came into the limelight. As per a new report, the Note 6 will have IP68 certification. This essentially means that the Note 6 will be dustproof and the water resistance will be at par with the Galaxy S7 - capacity to withstand submerging in water with 1.5m depth for close to 30 minutes.
The phone will supposedly boast an iris scanner, as per a new news released earlier today from an interesting import of this smartphone into India. Contrary to what has been with the earlier versions of this smartphone series, this new Note 5 will be available in the European market. The handset could be released as early as June, as per the opinion of certain analysts. That being said, Samsung could also follow the general schedule for Note launches and unveil it in late August or early September of this year. Right now it is indeed quite tough to predict the Korean giant's course of action.
