A leaked list of model names suggests that the next Galaxy Note phablet could be coming to European territories. The current Galaxy Note 5 did not launch at all in a handful of regions.

SamMobile revealed earlier last week about the existence of the Galaxy Note 6 and has today shared a list of alleged Galaxy Note 6 model names via Twitter. Amongst the small list is the Model "SM-N930F" where the F suffix typically implies a European model. If true, this could hint at an official European launch of the Note 6. Samsung opted to not launch the Galaxy Note 5 in a number of European regions due to a sales focus on the Galaxy Edge instead.

According to the latest rumors, the Galaxy Note 6 will carry a 5.8-inch "Slim RGB AMOLED" 2560 x 1440 resolution display, 6 GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB eMMC, 12 MP "Super OIS Plus" rear camera, and the signature S-Pen with 1024 levels of pressure. What makes these specifications leak doubtful is the fact that the Galaxy Note 4 S-Pen can register 2048 levels of pressure, so cutting this down to half for the Galaxy Note 6 raises an eyebrow. The 6 GB of RAM can also be seen as overkill for an Android smartphone.

The current Galaxy Note 5 is an excellent update over the Note 4 from a design standpoint, but it removes a handful of features from the Note 4 including a replaceable battery, IR blaster, MicroSD support, and others. It's possible that Samsung could reintroduce these features for the Note 6 as the recent Galaxy S7 brought back features that were present on the S5 but missing on the S6. Rumors point towards an official reveal of the Note 5 successor sometime this year between July and September.

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.
