BEACON TRANSCRIPT – These days Samsung seems to be busy as a bee because, in just two weeks, the tech giant is going to unveil its newest flagship, the Galaxy S7. Here are the latest rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Over the last couple of months, there were many rumors about the S7 series. Although many of them were viewed with skepticism, most of them proved to be true. There was one referring to Samsung wanting to pack a more capacitive battery into the new handset.
Well, it would seem that this rumor is partly true, and we even have a witness to confirm it. Eldar Murtazin is a Russian blogger, specialized in writing techie articles. According to a recent post, the Russian blogger declared that he managed to take hold of some leaked pictures from Samsung, depicting the device’s battery capacity.
Frankly, if the rumors prove to be true, then we can only say this is the most logical step Samsung can take. Do keep in mind that most Samsung handsets from the Galaxy family are noted for their high specs, not for their battery life.
Now, according to these rumors, the new S7 handset will be able to last more than two days. If this statement seems baffling, wait until you hear about what other things can this battery do. According to the same Russian blogger, the device is capable of playing 17+ hours of HQ videos, with the screen set at 100 percent brightness.
And to top it all off, the handset will also be able to survive up to two days with the screen set at 75 percent brightness.
Coming directly from the horse’s mouth, it would seem that the tech giant opted to mount 3000 mAh battery on the S7 handset. As for the S7 edge, Samsung wants to mount a 3500 mAh. A most sensible move indeed, given the fact that Samsung has announced that it wants to update most of the applications from its online store.
According to the latest rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S7, it also seems highly plausible that the handset will be launched on the same date as LG G5. LG’s crowning achievement will feature a 5.5-inch screen, more storing space thanks to a nifty microSD slot and not to mention dual camera. Looks like Samsung has some tough completion ahead, but the company is not yet out of tricks.
James Vincent from The Verge reported that Samsung plans to launch on the same date a 360-degree camera that is compatible with the Galaxy S7.
Samsung’s flagship will go live on the 21st of February, during a tech event hosted in Barcelona.
