Samsung Galaxy S7 to offer record battery life

Samsung Galaxy S7 Android flagship to offer record battery life

In addition to its previously rumored improved dust and water resistance, the next-gen Samsung flagship is expected to offer over 17 hours of video playback with maximum backlight.

The next-gen Samsung flagship is expected to show up in advance of MWC 2016, but nothing is official yet. However, more and more rumors and leaks about it go online these days, so the Galaxy S7 should be pretty close. While seeing it powered by a top-of-the-line processor and using a high-quality display would not come as a surprise, record-breaking autonomy in such a high-end device is not something usual.

According to Twitter user Eldar Murtazin, Mobile-Review editor-in-chief and MRG analyst, the upcoming Galaxy S7 can play video content for more than 17 hours with maximum backlight setting. While its 3000 mAh battery is not the most generous in the class, Galaxy S7 promises to be the most efficient. Currently, the high-end Samsung handset that offers the best autonomy in its category is the Galaxy S6 Active, which can achieve up to 11 hours of Netflix video playback, but uses a 3,500 mAh power pack.

Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890, 4 GB RAM, a 5 MP wide-angle front camera with f/1.7 aperture, and to run Android Marshmallow out of the box. This next-gen flagship will also come with improved resistance from dust and water. Tech journalist Shai Mizrachi reveals that the European rollout of the Galaxy S7 family begins on March 11th, so the official unveil should take place in early March as well.
