Note 7 vs Galaxy S6: Specs

At this point none of the specs or features have been confirmed, although @evleaks revealed some important info recently and benchmarks have shown something similar. At first we heard the new Note could have 6GB of RAM, but now we're hearing 4GB. We'll have to wait and see, and below is what we're expecting more so than what rumors suggest.

Galaxy S6 Specs

  • 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display
  • Samsung Exynos 8-core processor with 3GB of RAM
  • 32/64GB storage, no micro-SD slot
  • 16 Megapixel Rear camera with OIS, 5 megapixel front camera
  • 2,550 mAh battery with Fast Charging, Wireless Charging
  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop & TouchWiz (now on Android 6.0)
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • All metal and glass design
  • No Stylus

Galaxy Note 7 Specs (Rumored)
  • 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display (or 5.8-inch, Curved)
  • Samsung Exynos 8-core Processor (US may have Snapdragon 821)
  • 6GB RAM (some rumors claim 4GB again)
  • 64GB Storage with micro-SD support to expand storage
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow (possibly Android “N”)
  • 12 DualPixel Camera with IOS, f/1.7 aperture, more
  • 5-8 MP Front Camera with f/1.7 aperture
  • Premium all metal design
  • Fingerprint Scanner, Samsung Pay, USB Type-C port
  • Iris Eye Scanner technology
  • Integrated S-Pen Stylus
  • 4,000 mAh Battery with Fast Charge, Fast Wireless Charging (or 4,200 mAh)
  • IP68 dust and water resistant
  • more

Looking at that breakdown above it's a pretty clear choice which device will be better. The Galaxy Note 7 (if rumors are true) will be much improved over the Galaxy S6. A more powerful processor, extra storage, a better camera, be water-resistant, have a micro-SD slot, and last but not least is that huge battery. That's one of the most important specs to me, as the S6 didn't last nearly long enough with the small 2,550 mAh battery. The camera will go from 16 to 12 MP, but it's far better as pixel size isn't everything.

All of this means the Note 7 will be better than just about every phone Samsung has ever released, as expected, and check nearly every box on the spec sheet for potential buyers.

The Galaxy S6 is still a great phone with a lot to offer, but it's cripped by the storage and battery life. Both of those along with the IP68 rating makes the Note 7 a worthy successor, and worth upgrading even after only owning it for just over a year.
