Rumored to show up as early as June, the next-gen phablet is expected to pack a 5.8-inch curved display, as well as a 4000 mAh battery.

Although the next-gen Galaxy Note has been in the rumor mill for a while, a new exclusive report reveals that Samsung is currently testing not one, but two Galaxy Note 6 versions.

According to Dutch website GSM Helpdesk, the two Note 6 variants will have the same specs, the only difference being the screen type. The size of the display they mention is in line with previous rumors, namely 5.8 inches. The insiders who spoke about the upcoming devices mentioned that one will use a flat screen, while the other will employ a curved display. Both are expected to have the same resolution - 1,440X2,560 pixels (Quad HD).

Additional specs revealed by this recent leak include the Samsung Exynos 8890 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processors already mentioned in previous rumors, 6 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, Android N, a 4000 mAh battery. While an iris scanner would be an interesting addition, the chances to see it in the final product is are slim. 

The fact that Samsung is testing two variants of the Galaxy Note 6 does not mean both will hit the market. However, GSM Helpdesk's inside source claims at least one of them will launch for sure. Unfortunately, there is no info about its date of arrival or pricing.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
