All the news and rumors about the larger battery in the Galaxy S7 seems to be legit as the recent leaked info in FCC claims that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a larger battery to be exact 3,400mAh. Adding the best battery saving features of the Android Marshmallow 6.0, this could be the best combination for heavy smartphone users. Currently the developers have pushed the Galaxy S6 Edge+ with the 3,000mAh battery installed and that shows some really cool results.
The reports pops right after the news about the Always On display (edge display) on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge variant. This feature may lead the developers to install a larger battery in the S7 Edge (reported 3,600mAh) variant just like we saw in the previous flagship devices the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge will have a 3,600mAh battery, a solid bump over the 3,000mAh battery of the S6 edge+. The phone has LTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth and NFC. This filing was for the South Korean version, which will come in SK Telecom, KT and LG U+ flavors.
Beside this the devices will be Water Resistant as well. Samsung is going back and forth with the waterproofing and after having IP67 certification on the Galaxy S5, chose to omit it for the current S6 generation. That only left Sony as the major manufacturer to offer waterproof smartphones, though the Japanese company subsequently revised its policy on actual submersion. We’ll wait and see what exactly Samsung will let you do with the Galaxy S7 under water, and under warranty.
Here is the leaked image of the Galaxy S7 edge which is even more rounded on the edges.
