While Samsung Galaxy S7 has impressed most Android lovers with many calling it the best phone of 2016 so far, the Korean giant is not done yet. The next offering in the Note series from the company is set to be the Galaxy Note 6, which according to latest reports will feature Qualcomm's most powerful mobile chip — the Snapdragon 823 that is yet to be released.
The Snapdragon 823 chipset is said to be packed with 64-bit class Kryo quad-cores, a 720MHz Adreno 530 graphics engine (GPU) and a Hexagon Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The Adreno 530 accounts for an additional 40% improvement in the graphics department, as well as 30% better power efficiency than its predecessors.
As of now, most new flagships slated for a 2016 launch will be running on Snapdragon's 820 chip. The next chip in line would be the 823, but this is the first time any information has come of the unreleased mobile processing unit.
The information that has been shared by a tipster to SamMobile also shows that other devices to get the Snapdragon 823 will include LG's Flex 3 and an unknown Xperia model from Sony. The rumour is at a very early stage now and details of the 823 are hard to come by.
Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy Note 6 is also going to have a 5.8-inch display and 6GB of RAM. Recent reports also indicate that the device may be IP68 water resistant and come with an iris scanner.
A report last week stated that Samsung would release the Note 6 much earlier than Apple's iPhone 7. It indicates the timeline of the launch to be somewhere between June and July 2016.
