A new report coming from China reveals that the Galaxy Note 6 will feature up to 8 GB RAM and a 64-bit Snapdragon SoC with Adreno 530 graphics.

Although the next-gen Galaxy Note phablet is expected to arrive this fall, it has been in the rumor mill for a while, and even some of its specs have been detailed. Obviously, nothing is official yet, but it is good to see what Samsung might have in store for the fans of its largest flagship handsets.

The latest leak comes from China and reveals the following - quad-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 SoC clocked up to 2.6 GHz with Adreno 530 graphics, Hexagon 680 DSP, up to 8 GB 2166 MHz dual-channel LPDDR4 memory, up to 25 MP camera.

Qualcomm did not unveil the Snapdragon 823 yet, but it is very likely that this apparently new SoC is just a Snapdragon 820 with higher core speeds. Previous rumors also mentioned a 5.8-inch display and IP68 water resistance. Considering the approach used for the Galaxy flagships and Galaxy Note models released so far, it would not be a surprise to see the Note 6 coming out with at least one Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered variant and another that uses a Samsung Exynos chip.

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.
