New Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Adopts USB-C

Samsung is reportedly switching to USB Type-C connector with the Galaxy Note 6.

On the heels of Galaxy Note 6 rumors about performance, comes a report that says that Samsung will adopt USB-C in the Galaxy Note 6. Samsung is late to the game here. The Galaxy S7 has still a micro USB port. One of the reasons for sticking with the dated plug is the Gear VR. The popular Samsung virtual reality headset uses a micro USB connector.

The source of the Galaxy Note 6 USB-C connector report is SamMobile, who usually is well informed. Earlier today we carried more sketchy Galaxy Note 6 rumors that surfaced over the weekend on Chinese social media.

According to posts found on Weibo, the Galaxy Note 6 will have a 5.77-inch screen, 6GB RAM, up to 256GB storage, 4,200mAh battery and IP68 water proof rating. The Note 6 would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 CPU. The Samsung Galaxy S6 would come in flat and edge design.

The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be released end of summer. This could also mean that Samsung will launch a new Gear VR along the Galaxy Note 6.

The Galaxy Note 6 will go head to head with the new iPhone 7. Apple is rumored to add a new larger and higher performance version in the iPhone 7 line-up. Besides the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, a iPhone 7 Pro is possible. The iPhone Pro is supposed to feature a dual-lens camera. So far now details have leaked about the Note 6 camera.
