Rumor: Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Will Sport Snapdragon 823 SoC

Rumor has it that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 phablet will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset.

Samsung has already launched its first flagship mobile phone – the Galaxy S7 – during the 2016 Mobile World Congress (MWC) and now smartphone enthusiasts are waiting for the Korean company to reveal the Galaxy Note 6.

The next-generation Samsung phablet is likely to be unveiled in late August or early September this year and include top-notch features just like its predecessors.

Samsung has not revealed anything about the Galaxy Note 6 but speculations are high that a Snapdragon 823 SoC will power the device. The chipset is said to pack in 64-bit class Kryo quad cores, a 720MHz Adreno 530 graphics engine and a Hexagon Digital Signal Processor (DSP).

In 2015, the Galaxy S6 as well as the Galaxy Note 5, were released only with an Exynos processor. However, this year the Galaxy S7 is available in two variants: one with Exynos chip and the other with Snapdragon 820 processor, which means that Samsung may launch two versions of the Galaxy Note 6 as well.
