Why a Galaxy Note 6 Lite May be Perfect for People Who Don’t Like VR
For those who have remained unfazed by the buzz the GearVR is gathering or the VR hype train in general, Samsung might be making something for them. There have been speculations this week that Samsung will be making a Galaxy Note 6 Lite without aiming specifically for the GearVR. This means a not so much emphasis on the extra-sharp display and a slightly less powerful processor which invariably means a stronger battery and a processor that is just like that of the Galaxy S7 is still very well powerful enough to meet the daily requirements of a device.
Samsung seems to be dancing to the tune of those who possibly might not want a GearVR. You can imagine their surprise when business users and artists who have been using the Samsung Galaxy Note appear not to have any kind of interest in using a virtual reality headset with their smartphone as Galaxy S7 users have been. This of course is just unproven theory.
It’s also possible that Samsung will offer more options to users as they upgrade the GearVR to USB-C in which case, a 2-pronged Galaxy Note 6 launch would work too.
Hypothetically, this is what will happen with the features of the devices;
Samsung Galaxy Note 6
- 5.8-inch display, 2K (Quad HD)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor
- 6GB of RAM
- USB-C – works with new GearVR headset, also release this fall
That’s precisely what SamMobile thinks might happen. The second device would be great for those that want to have a large-screened Note device, but don’t want to go into the future like the normal Note 6 would have them go.
Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Lite
- 5.8-inch display, 1080p (Full HD)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
- 4GB of RAM
- Micro-USB B (what you’re used to)
This Lite version would, however, still work with the Samsung GearVR that’s already on the market now, it wouldn’t just match up in terms of compatibility with the GearVR that’s going to be released in future, maybe, later this year. A lower resolution display could mean a longer battery life and this might imply that Samsung will be selling this device for a much lower price.
