Samsung's most-awaited device of 2016 is not the recently launched Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge but the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, which is expected to see the light of the day in the third quarter of the year. Speculations around the device will only increase over the next few months and leaks will expose every possible detail.

The South Korean technology giant hasn't revealed the release date of the Galaxy Note 6 but it is expected to follow the footstep of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5, and hit the stores in August, which means fans have to wait only about four more months for it.

The Galaxy Note fans will expect big from the upcoming next-generation device. Features like camera with good sensor, powerful battery, expandable storage, 3D touch etc could be in their wish list. The company may even introduce unique features besides the usual upgrades, but nothing is clear about the device at the moment with Samsung choosing to remain mum.

Samsung has released the Galaxy S7, and anyone who follows the Galaxy S and Note devices over the last few years should have got a fair idea of what the Galaxy Note 6 will have, as these devices usually share several specifications.

The Galaxy S7 has a microSD card slot that was discarded in the Galaxy S6 and mega-pixel of its camera was downgraded and sensor improved. So, it is almost certain that the Galaxy Note 6 will have expandable storage option and upgraded camera features.

It's been reported that the Galaxy Note 6 will sport a 5.7-inch display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, run on Android Marshmallow, come packed with a 64GB/128GB internal storage (with microSD card slot) and a 6GB RAM, and house a 12MP main camera with improved sensor.

According to Weibo user HG_VISION (via PhoneArena), the device will sport a 5.8-inch Slim RGB AMOLED display with 2,560x1,440 pixels, come packed with a 64GB/128GB internal memory and a 6GB LPDDR4 High-Speed RAM and house a 12MP camera with "Super O.I.S. Plus".

The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to come with several feature upgrades over its predecessor but one has to take the leaked details with a pinch of salt as we are yet to hear from Samsung.
