Samsung's fifth-generation Galaxy Note is still not officially available in Europe but rumour mills are already at work on the next iteration of the series. A key suggestion is that the Note 6 will sport a 5.8in slim RGB Amoled display.
That screen size, reported by the Sammobile blog and attributed to a Weibo user, would make it larger than the forthcoming Galaxy S7, which is seen having a 5.1in screen. The larger screen might not be a surprise considering it's for the Note series, but what is interesting is that Samsung is planning a switch to RGB display. After using for it for the Galaxy S2, Samsung had dropped the RGB display calling it less durable.
The Weibo post also says the Note 6 screen would "become too thin" and pressure-sensitive at 1,024 pressure points for the S Pen. Both the previous Notes — Note 5 and 4 — had 2,048 pressure points.
Other listed specs include 6GB RAM, key two different chipsets, a 12 megapixel rear camera with Super OIS (optical image stabilisation) technology. The device might come in two different storage sizes: 64GB and 128GB.
Samsung unveiled the Note 5 in August 2015 in New York, and rolled it out in the US market towards the end of the same month.
