Back when LG and Samsung were duelling it out over would be "FIRST" to market with a curved display smartphone, Samsung released the Galaxy Round, which was only ever released in South Korea, and didn't stick around for long. Of course, LG went on to release the G Flex and Samsung the "edge" series of devices, which started back with the original Galaxy Note Edge, launched with the Galaxy Note 4 a couple years ago. Now, there are rumors that a Galaxy Note 6 Edge could be launching alongside this years Galaxy Note 6.

SlashGear have compiled all the information from their tips and "other sources" and it looks as though a Galaxy Note 6 Edge could be on the cards, but the majority of their latest story focuses around possible specs for the two new devices. Just like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, these two devices would share similar specs, with highlights including 3,100 mAh batteries, 5.8-inch Quad HD displays (5.9-inch in the case of the Galaxy Note 6 Edge) and 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras. Either a Samsung Exynos 8890 CPU or Snapdragon 820 CPU will be paired with a whopping 6GB of RAM and to put the Galaxy Note back on top, Samsung could ship these devices with 64 or 128GB of internal, expandable storage.

These are specs that are, of course, speculative from SlashGear, so it's well worth taking these with some salt. The 6GB of RAM is one particular specification that we've heard over and over again, and considering Samsung make their own memory modules, it wouldn't be too difficult for them to come up with a custom solution for the Galaxy Note. As for the camera however, we've heard rumors of Samsung putting together an even larger sensor for future devices, which could take in the same amount of light but offer a larger resolution of 14 or even 16-megapixels. Still, we have a long way to go before the Galaxy Note 6 launches towards the end of the year, and we'll no doubt hear more rumors and see more leaks leading up to that.
