Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could appear this July

Galaxy note 5 s-penThat’s not a misprint – We could well see the Note 6 in three month’s time.

Yup. Word on the street is that Samsung is gearing up to release the Note 6 in July.

It seems that Samsung wants to keep its Note fans guessing as there hasn’t really been a fix release period for the Note range when you think about it. The Note 5 appeared in mid-August 2015, the Note 4 before it in September 2014, the Note 3 exactly a year earlier.

If I was a betting man I would have thought that Samsung’s first 6GB RAM-packing Galaxy Note would go official in August or even September, possibly in the days leading up to IFA Berlin. Not so, apparently.

I have already reported that the UK will actually get this Note but, again, to expect it in August. This might still be the case with the July launch being phase one and we in the UK to get it a few weeks later.

According to a report from Korean website The Bell, which quotes sources familiar with the matter, Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy Note 6 in mid-July.

The Galaxy Note 5 could be considered somewhat of an unusual flop, due to internal competition from the S6 Edge+ and regional exclusivity, so you can’t rule out Samsung wanting the world to forget about it as soon as possible.

There are outside chances that the Note 6 could land running Android N (Nutella?) right out the box. I think the neat S-Pen stand is more likely though.

No doubt that there’ll be more about this over the next few weeks, so keep coming back.
