This early, talks about a Samsung Galaxy Note 6 impending release has already started to circulate online.  With numerous tech junkies waiting to get their hands on the South Korean brand's newest phablet, what can users exactly expect from the latest gadget?

According to reports, the new Note will have be IP68 certified.  This means, the Note 5's successor will actually be dustproof and waterproof. Apart from this exciting new feature, reports are also claiming that the new phablet will put a premium on security by adding an iris scan cam.

As of writing, release date speculations have been rife online, claiming that a July/August 2016 launch could be in place.  As Forbes noted, Samsung could be preparing to launch two new models for the Note 6 as well- a flat screened Note 6 and a curved edge variant.  These offerings have already been made available to the public when the Galaxy S7 was launched recently.

With the success the two S7 variants has brought to the South Korean tech giant, experts are claiming that it is highly possible for them to repeat its success by releasing a Samsung Galaxy Note 6 and Note 6 Edge.  Apart from its design, users are also looking forward to the new phablet's improved battery life.

As Forbes' Gordon Kelly mentioned, "The Note range has always been known for its excellent battery life, but that took a double hit last year when Samsung reduced the capacity of the Note 5 battery as well as making it non-removable."

"The latter is unlikely to return, but its capacity is said to jump from 3,000mAh to a whopping 4,000mAh," he added. "That should be enough to make it one of the longest lasting phones around."

Meanwhile, the newest device will also have updates on its camera with a 12MP DualPixel sensor on the rear and an aperture of f/1.7 with a rumored Timeless Photo/Vivid Photo technology, News Everyday reported. The front cam will reportedly get a boost as it will have a better aperture of f/1.7, but will maintain the same resolution of 5MP.
