The curvier Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will somehow be able to squeeze in a 3600mAh battery, according to an FCC document uncovered by 9to5Google. That’s a massive 1,000 mAh increase from last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The larger battery makes sense given the reported 5.5 inch size of the S7. But can Samsung effectively use all that battery power? Or will TouchWiz have that for lunch as well?
We recently heard that the S7 Edge might not pack the same punch as the S7. The biggest question mark is whether the S7 Edge will get a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor? That being said, the S7 Edge will hopefully last a full day. Its battery will beat almost every other phone out there, including the larger 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and its 3,000mAh battery.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium comes close with a 3,430mAh battery, the GoogleNexus 6P has a 3,450mAh battery and Samsung’s own Galaxy S6 Active dialed it up to a 3,500mAh battery.
Does this mean that the normal Galaxy S7 will get a large battery as well? The whole S7 vs. S7 Edge debate might get a lot more complicated before they are officially announced. Keep a look out for more details…
