Yet another new Galaxy Note 6 rumor has surfaced online today.
The new rumor out of China claims the upcoming Samsung flagship phablet is going to run the Snapdragon 823 SoC and not the Snapdragon 820 doing duty on select variants of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge.
While the rumor doesn’t talk about rest of the phablet’s specs, it does detail the key highlights of the Snapdragon 823 SoC. Now, as most of you will be aware, the Snapdragon 823 SoC hasn’t officially been confirmed yet. In fact, we aren’t even sure if such a chip even exists. However, if the source of the rumor is to be believed, the Snapdragon 823 will be very similar to the Snapdragon 820 except for a higher clock speed. While the Snapdragon 820 is clocked at up to 2.2GHz, the Snapdragon 823 will reportedly be clocked at up to 2.6GHz (3.0GHz Smart Drive). In addition to the CPU cores, the Adreno 530 GPU is also rumored to be clocked higher at 720MHz on the Snapdragon 823.
As suggested by rumors in the recent past, the Galaxy Note 6 could come with an iris scanner and IP68 certification for water resistance. The 2016 Galaxy Note flagship could also pack an impressive 6GB of RAM and a slightly larger 5.8-inch Slim RGB AMOLED display.
