CPU-Z leak claims a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 for the 5.77-inch display.

Phone Arena claims to have a specifications screenshot of an alleged Galaxy Note 6 from a Samsung employee that reveals some core details on the device. As of this writing, the manufacturer has neither confirmed nor denied that a late Summer launch of the Galaxy Note 5 successor can be a possibility.

Interestingly, Samsung may be dropping Qualcomm SoCs altogether for the Note 6. An older leak from Chinese social media site Weibo reported that the next Galaxy Note would come with a Snapdragon 823 SoC, but this latest screenshot leak shows that the in-house Exynos 8890 SoC may be the more likely candidate at least for region-specific versions of the phablet. This same processor also powers the international versions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Other than the notable Exynos processor, the CPU-Z screenshot shows a 5.77-inch display at 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution instead of the rumored 4K resolution, 6 GB RAM, and 32 GB eMMC. Additionally, it is generally expected that the phablet will accept MicroSD cards like its Galaxy S7 sibling. The model name of the device should follow the current Galaxy convention and be the SM-N930.

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.
