Samsung's 2016 series flagship phablet Galaxy Note 6 is rumoured to hit stores in August in select markets.
Popular Twitter spy Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) citing reliable sources has claimed that the new Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be released in the U.S. on Aug. 15.
There is no proof to validate Blass' source, but he has a pretty good track record of predicting smartphone launches, and we shouldn't really dismiss the report as just another rumour story.
Moreover, Samsung, in a bid to get a head start over arch-rival Apple's iPhone 6S series, skipped Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) 2015 to launch Galaxy Note 5 in August.
If Blass' prediction is true, Samsung is likely to release the Galaxy Note 6 in India, China and other select global markets in August, as the company usually rolls out new devices, especially the flagship models in close to 100 regions simultaneously in the first phase of the release plan.
