Samsung Galaxy Note 6 News And Rumors: Smartphone May Be Water And Dust Resistant

The Galaxy S7 proves to be a major hit for South Korean tech giant Samsung. The Galaxy Note 6 may also be the same as rumor mill churns out a slew of features that would surely give its tough rivals a run for their money. As with the S7 device, the 'phablet' is likely to come with IP68 certification with clues pointing to a water-resistant package plus an iris scanner.

As reported by Sam Mobile, the forthcoming flagship from the Note series will be dust and water resistant- tech attributes that make Samsung's recent handsets valuable among high-end smartphones. With the IP68 certification, the Note 6 handset is expected to survive after being submerged in water, one-and-half-meter deep, for about thirty minutes.

Galaxy Club also noted that it managed to pick up some information suggesting that Samsung just imported a significant number of iris camera from India for its research and development activities linked to its Mobile division. While no confirmed specs have been officially announced, analysts and observers expect that the iris scanners will be fitted to its high-end devices and not to its mid-ranger series.

If the rumor proves accurate upon Note 6's release, then it marks the first time a scanning lock mechanism is incorporated in a Galaxy handset. Even such feature is nowhere to be found on Apple's most current flagship but is already available on a number of devices running on Windows 10 OS.

In addition to a number of features mentioned above, Note 6 is reportedly equipped with 5.8-inch display plus a generous 6GB of RAM according to BGR. Even more importantly, the forthcoming flagship from the Note lineup is slated to arrive in Europe- an opportunity that Note 5 did not have. Taking cues from tech observers, the release schedule would fall sometime in June but may also fall on Samsung's more traditional Note launch schedule around late August or early September.
