Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly be the first Samsung phone to feature USB-C

    You said “There’s no word yet on whether or not the Note 6 will also feature a kitchen sink.” this statement twice! Good job a proof reading! 🙂

    • Jokes on you. The Note 6 actually includes dual kitchen sink support.

    • Mo Dabbas

      I hope Samsung ships the dual sink with the phone.

    • They’re DLC actually.

    I’ll definitely have my eye on this phone when it comes out. I’ll be mildly annoyed when I have to buy a new charger to keep at work, but I think I’d get over that pretty quickly.

      I recently switched to a Nexus 6P with USB-C. To save having to replace all of my secondary chargers I just picked up a cheap 2-pack of micro USB to USB-C adapters from Amazon. They don’t seem to support things like OTG, but charging works fine.

      I love the quick charge, though. I’d end up buying a new quick charge to have at work, I am sure, but good to know that this option exists too.

      That’s what people said when iPhone moved away from the super wide connectors, or blackberry changed from mini to micro USB. Just move along with the times … Nothing to see here.

      That’s what I said. If the technology is better (and I believe it is), then so be it. At the end of the day, another $10-20 accessory for my $800+ phone isn’t going to change my mind about upgrading.

    I’ve made it this long without USB-C. Darn Note 6 forcing my hand.

    Here’s hoping that Samsung sticks with the Exynos for Canada.

    IR Blaster pleaseeeeee!

    • awhite2600

      The lack of an IR blaster on the Note 5 is one of the reasons why I didn’t upgrade from the Note 3 to the Note 5.

    • icyhotonmynuts

      Sooo many pranks at work will go unplayed without the IR blaster 🙁

    I’m interested to see how fast the charging is, compared to what Samsung has already accomplished in this area. I don’t give a crap about data transfer speeds, as I never connect anything with cables any longer. I’m not crazy about having to spend a couple of weeks of disposable income, to replace the 8 or 9 chargers I’ve got scattered around the home, office, and vehicles. It may be only the cables, in some cases, but I’m sure they’re not giving them away cheap yet, as it’s still a new standard.

    I’m waiting on this device. Currently have a Note 3 which has been absolutely stellar. If the Note 6 doesn’t repeat some of the bonehead moves by the 4 and the 5, I’m in.

    • icyhotonmynuts

      Which were what in your opinion?

  • Mo Dabbas

    “carry HDMI or Display Port video signals.” — That would be really nice to have. It’ll probably make the processor work harder, but it’s a nice feature to have.

    Also, I highly doubt the phone will come with 6Gb or ram.

    • icyhotonmynuts

      You’re right, probably just 4gb. They want to leave some “features” to show off next year when it’ll come with 5gb.
