Samsung's most-awaited device of the year, the Galaxy Note 6, is just a few months away from seeing the light of the day, but the company is not willing to reveal any detail. However, leaks over the last few weeks have given a hint of what to expect from the device, including specifications.
The South Korean technology giant is expected to release the upcoming next-generation device in August, by the time its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5, completes a year cycle in the market. There are also reports that the device could be launched in mid-July, however, it is just a speculation at the moment.

Camera: Samsung is expected to decrease the camera mega-pixel and concentrate on quality. It is reported that the device will have the same camera seen in the Galaxy S7. The recently released flagship device houses a 12MP main camera with features like f/1.7 aperture, 26mm, OIS, 1/2.6" sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size, and a 5MP front-snapper with f/1.7 aperture.
