Samsung Galaxy Note 6 might use the Snapdragon 823 SoC
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.
