Samsung has taken the wraps off its 10-nanometre LPDDR4 6GB mobile DRAM at the 2016 Samsung Mobile Solution Forum recently held is Shenzhen, China. Could this be the same 6GB RAM module expected inside its new Galaxy-branded Note, which is likely to launch in August?
The new Note, dubbed Galaxy Note 6, could be Samsung's first consumer product to pack LPDDR4 6GB DRAM. The upcoming Galaxy line-up might also come with this component.
Based on a 10nm fabrication process, the 6GB RAM will consume less energy and deliver an extended battery life. The latest disclosure comes courtesy of Chinese site Tech Huanqiu quoted by Sammobile. Other rumoured features for the Note 6 include a 5.8in Slim RGB AMOLED display and Snapdragon 823 chip.
The phablet could also pack an iris scanner. Samsung appears to have already begun the software development for the device. The build number for the initial firmware spotted was N930FXXU0APE1, which would of course change with the retail unit. The firmware development suggests that the device's hardware has reached the final stage and it is highly unlikely that there would be any change.
The South Korean mobile manufacturer has apparently filed for registration of a couple of trademarks in the European Union. The registration has been filed for "Samsung Iris" and "Samsung Eyeprint", which indicate the new Note could feature an iris scanner.
