The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 looks set for its big unveil later in the year and it should be well worth the wait. The Note 6 could be the most powerful smartphone ever made.

According to rumours from Chinese site Weibo, the Galaxy Note 6 will come sporting the very latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor, which can support up to a whopping 8GB of RAM.

So far rumours have pointed towards the Note 6 coming with 6GB of RAM, which is impressive enough. A full 8GB seems like overkill, even for virtual reality support, which it is likely being powered up to offer.

The 64-bit Snapdragon 823 processor is apparently ready to handle up to 3.0GHz of power which is backed by a 720MHz Adreno 530 GPU.

The source also claims that these specs could appear in a Sony Xperia handset and an LG G Flex 3. It seems unlikely that LG will bring the G Flex back but that Snapdragon 823 should appear in plenty of next gen phones later this year.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is also expected to come with a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display, 16-megapixel camera and an iris scanner. It is expected to launch at the same time the Note 5 did last year, meaning an August appearance.
