Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Note will be even more spectacular than its last, according to the latest claims.

The South Korean company is said to be toying with the idea of introducing a larger, curved display, which will likely accompany a brand new Qualcomm processor, an even greater camera, and an insane 6GB of RAM.

We’ve already heard that the Note 6 could pack a 5.8-inch “Slim RGB” display, which would allow Samsung to make the handset thinner without sacrificing the image quality its latest smartphone are famous for. Now sources for GSM Helpdesk say that display could be curved — just like that on the Galaxy S7 edge.

However, Samsung is said to be in two minds about whether to go down the curved route, or keep the Note 6 flat. Curved displays certainly look good, and Samsung’s have been incredibly popular — but they might not work all that well with the Note’s beloved S Pen.

Whichever style Samsung decides to go for, the Note 6 will retain the same Quad HD resolution offered by its existing lineup, the sources say. It will also be the only Samsung flagship we get this later this year, with no successor planned for the Galaxy S6 edge+.

Inside the Note 6, we can expect to see a new Snapdragon 823 processor that’s even more powerful than the Snapdragon 820 (or the Exynos 8890 in some markets), a whopping 6GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, and an even better camera.

The device is expected to ship with Android N pre-installed.

Samsung won’t announce the Galaxy Note 6 until August at the earliest, so there’s still time for the company’s plans to change. Don’t read too much into these claims for now, then; let’s wait and see what the leaks tell us in a few months.
