Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to feature new Snapdragon chip, 256GB storage

According to a new rumor that surfaced online today on China's Weibo microblogging website, Samsung plans to launch a "Lite" version of the Galaxy Note 6 this year, with some pretty impressive specifications.

In many ways, Galaxy S7 Active will be superior to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in terms of survivability, its rugged chassis will be able to hold out against the elements.

The new Galaxy C5 will come with the latest version of Google's mobile OS, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Of course, none of this is set in stone, but it would certainly make sense for Samsung to take this route. Before you freak out, this Galaxy Note 6 "Lite" will be far from handicapped.

Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 will be available soon for the T&T subscribers as the carrier begins pre-orders on May 6. However, the rumor mill waits for no one, and the speculation and gossips about the next flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S8, have already started. Its OEM is equipped with an Adreno 306 GPU and a screen display size of 8-inch HD with a resolution size of 800x 1,280 pixels.

Samsung could these new 2016 series of Galaxy J smartphones in India as early as Monday. That's what Samsung appears to have heard. The Galaxy S7 will be no different.

Apart from two flagship smartphones released by the South Korean tech powerhouse, Samsung may still have some interesting surprises up their sleeve with the purportedly powerful phablet from the Note series. It is expected that Apple will upgrade the iPhone 7 to this memory quotient as well, and thus there will be pressure on Apple's great rival to respond in kind. As such, we expect Samsung to launch a single Galaxy Note 6 this year, with different SKUs for different regions (as with the Galaxy S7).

May include an Iris Eye Scanner technology instead of a fingerprint scanner.
