For those of you who want to try out new Note 7 features, you can install the Note 7 Port ROM for your Galaxy S6 using Noble ROM.
Now, this is a full “ported” ROM straight from a real Galaxy Note 7 so you will be able to see what will be announced in a few days at the official Note 7 announcement.
The Galaxy Note 7 will have an IRIS scanner along with fingerprint scanner as evidenced by this ported ROM. You will be able to access the IRIS settings but not able to register as it requires Note 7’s IRIS sensor, which is obviously not supported with S6. Also the new Galaxy Note 7 will have curved edges similar to S7 Edge and feature Edge Screen Panels, which is also seen in this ported ROM.
Although there’s no S-Pen on the S6, you will still be able to try out new S-Pen features as the ROM developer has added in support. The new Note 7 Air Command features new Note app, Smart Select, Screen Write, and Translate. Probably the biggest feature this year is the Translate feature which can translate any letters you pick out on the screen. However this feature is not yet working on this ROM.
Overall, this is an excellent way to try out Note 7’s new UX UI, S-Pen features, and verify that IRIS scanner is indeed coming so give it a test drive if you have a Galaxy S6 and do let us know if you find anything else new!
