The Galaxy Note 6 might be better than your laptop – Yahoo News

If you haven’t purchased the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge yet, you might want to wait for Samsung to unveil its next best thing. The Galaxy Note 6 has appeared in various rumors so far and a slew of new reports offer plenty of new details about the upcoming handset. From the looks of it – not that we’re surprised – this will be the Android phone to buy this fall.

The Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly have a USB Type-C port, according to SamMobile, although it’s not clear at this point whether the reversible port will support UBS 3.1 technology. The site also speculates that Samsung will launch an updated Gear VR headset that could make use of the new USB-C port, though nothing is confirmed on that front yet.

If that’s not enough, a report from Android Geeks says the Galaxy Note 6 will have a camera similar to the Galaxy S7’s though there’s a huge twist: It will include an infrared autofocus module.

Autofocus is already amazingly fast on the Galaxy S7, but Samsung is looking to improve upon it. The site’s source says Samsung is currently testing two Galaxy Note 6 prototypes, one with IR autofocus and one with a camera setup identical to the Galaxy S7’s.

Finally, a report from GizmoChina tells us the new Note smartphone should be launched at some point this August. The handset should pack a 5.8-inch display with 2K resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor (upgraded Snapdragon 820 version), 6GB of RAM, and a 4,200 mAh battery. The most impressive detail offered in this new leak from China concerns storage. Apparently, the phone would be available in a 256GB capacity, which might be a first for the company – we already know Samsung is mass-producing such storage, though it’s not clear what devices will support it. The report also says the phone will have IP68 dust and water certification.

Assuming these specs are accurate, the Galaxy Note 6 might be better than your current laptop, which is probably how Apple would introduce it if it were to make such a device.
