Now Evan Blass has revealed that the Galaxy Note 6 will be released on the week of the 15th of August in the US, this would suggest that the handset will be announced late July or early August.

The Galaxy Note 6 is rumored to come with a 5.8 inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 1560 x 1440 pixel and the handset will feature a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 is basically an overclocked version of the 820 and the handset is also rumored to come with 6GB of RAM, the device will come with a range of storage options and we may see a 256GB model this year.
The Note 6 will feature a 4000 mAh battery and the same cameras as the S7, this will include a 5 megapixel front facing camera and a 12 megapixel rear camera. The device is also said to be waterproof like the S7 range and will either come with Android Marshmallow or possibly the new Android N OS.
There are also rumors of a third version of the handset, a Note 6 Lite which will have a Full HD display and 4GB of RAM, the rest of the specifications will be the same.
Samsung released their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones earlier than normal this year, the strategy appears to have worked for them and it looks like they will do something similar with the Note 6 launch.
Apple are rumored to be launching their new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in September and Samsung are apparently looking to make their new Note 6 available before Apple’s new iPhones.
We suspect that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will go on sale some time during the week of the 15th of August, Evan Blass has a very good track record with leaks, so the date he has mentioned on Twitter is probably when we will see Samsung’s new phablet.
