For a long time now, the story has been mostly the same when it comes to Samsung's flagship releases for the year; we see the Galaxy S line in the Spring, and the Galaxy Note line in the Fall. Last year changed this slightly, with the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 in the Summer, but the timing is still relatively the same, we get one flagship during H1 of the year and another during H2 of the year. As we get further into the Summer, rumors and leaks of the upcoming Galaxy Note, which seems all but confirmed to be called the Galaxy Note 7, have been swirling. Now, it looks like we might know some of the key specs that will be powering the Galaxy Note 7 when it launches later this year.
Now, a source out of China has come forward with what could be specs for the upcoming Galaxy Note 7, and at the heart of it all will be – depending on which part of the World you're in – will be the Exynos 8893 or the Snapdragon 821. Both of these processors are slight upgrades over the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge's Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890, but a key difference in the Galaxy Note 7 will be 6GB of RAM, at least according to this latest rumor. Speaking of gigabytes, the storage situation with the upcoming Galaxy Note is said to be options of 64, 128 and 256GB, as well as expandable storage. A 12-megapixel camera as well a front-facing 5-megapixel camera is pegged to take care of imaging in the new Galaxy Note, and these are specs that we've seen before, alongside the Quad HD Super AMOLED display, rumored to be 5.7 or 5.8-inches in size. According to other leaks, we've heard that the new Galaxy Note will be available in a fetching blue color and IP68 dust and water-resistance will make a return, too.
A 4,000 mAh battery as well as a USB Type-C complete the list of rumored specs here, and while the recent logo leak has pointed to both Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy Note 7 Edge devices launching later this year, we don't know too much right now. Regardless of what we know right now, it's very likely that Samsung wants the 2016 Galaxy Note to repair some of the damage last year's model did for the lineup.
