At least one other SKU may launch alongside the flagship Galaxy Note 6 with the same display size and less powerful hardware.

Should the rumors prove to be true, Samsung will be launching a new flagship Galaxy Note smartphone to succeed the current Note 5 in addition to a "Lite" model. The source claims that the Lite SKU will still have high-end specifications including a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and a 5.8-inch FHD display.

As previously reported, the regular Galaxy Note 6 is expected to carry a Snapdragon 823 SoC (or Exynos 8890 in certain regions), 6 GB RAM, and a 5.8-inch QHD display. This would give it the same display size as the supposed Lite version with differences only in resolution and internal hardware.

It's becoming a trend for manufacturers to expand their respective flagship smartphones into a full family of choices. For example, the LG G5 has its own "Special Edition" SKU while the HTC 10 will have a HTC 10 "Lifestyle" version. Sony announced a family of Xperia X models earlier this year including the flagship Xperia X with a Snapdragon 820 SoC and a mid-range Xperia XA with a Snapdragon 652 SoC. The Galaxy Note smartphones are known to be very high-end and pricey, so a cheaper version with slightly lower specifications could attract more buyers who may be on the fence.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
