As we edge closer and closer to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we’ve begun to learn more about the new product offerings that will be launched there. From the LG G5’s rumored uni-body form factor to HTC One M10’s supposed 5.2″ screen, rumors and confirmations have been off the charts the last couple of weeks. Today, we got another confirmation that no one was really expecting; a 3600 mAh battery in Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 Edge.
As rumor would have it, Samsung will be releasing both a “Regular Sized” Galaxy S7, with a 5.2″ display, as well as an “Edge” variant, which will be larger, and offer a 5.5″ display, similar to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge +. I would say this consolidation is generally a good thing, as helps provide a more simplified method of choosing a device, and I felt the beveled screen on the Galaxy S6 was pleading to be a bit larger as well. A bigger display does mean more battery consumption, however, and it seems like Samsung is stepping up to the plate to make sure that issue is taken care of. One of the biggest complaints of last year’s Galaxy S6 line was the abysmal battery life, so if Samsung is able to tackle that problem in a way that makes consumers happy, we might be looking at a contender for device of the year right here.
We’ll have to wait and see if there are any other cool features sneaking into the device, but we should be getting a review unit after it launches so check here first for our impressions and review.
