Samsung's upcoming next-generation device, the Galaxy Note 6, will hog the limelight next few months leading up to it release. It is expected to be the last device from the Note series and fans will be looking forward to a noticeable change, rather than just a few feature upgrades.

The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be released in August, by the time the Galaxy Note 5 completes one-year cycle in the market. However, Korean website The Bell (via PhoneArena), has claimed in a report that the device codenamed Grace will be launched in mid-July. 

The South Korean technology giant is tight-lipped on its upcoming device but reports have claimed that it may come with at least three unique features not seen in its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5.

There is no mention of whether the units imported from South Korean to India are to be used in the Galaxy Note 6, but it is very likely to be used in the device as it is Samsung's next "big thing" to be released this year.

Storage: The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to come with a microSD card slot like the recently released Galaxy S7. More than that, Samsung may introduce the 256GB universal flash storage (UFS) that was released in Feb. to its upcoming next-generation device.
