Galaxy Note 7 has a bigger battery than Note 5 according to latest leak


With just over a week to go until Samsung officially takes the wraps off the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2nd, it’s almost guaranteed that we’ll see a few more leaks in the intervening period. Last week we saw leaked images of a black Note 7, as well as a video of the handset being handled briefly in a video. Today’s says the Note 7 has a slightly smaller battery than the Galaxy S7 Edge, although still larger than the carried by the Note 5. Join us after the break for more details. 

Leaked Specs for Note 7 - SKT

According to a prematurely published product page on South Korea Telecom’s website, the Galaxy Note 7 (model SM-N930S) will feature a 3,500mAh non-removable battery, which is a bump of 500mAh over the Note 5, but 100mAh less than the Galaxy S7 Edge. From the listing, we can also see that the Note 7 weighs 169 grams, which makes it 2 grams lighter than the Note 5, though it will be slightly thicker. Other than that, the listing merely confirms what we already know, in that the Note 7 has a Super-AMOLED panel with Quad HD resolution.

While it could be viewed as disappointing that the Note 7 allegedly has a battery with 100mAh less capacity than the Galaxy S7 Edge, it does have 500mAh more than the Note 5, which, when combined with new efficiencies in technology and software, should hold it in good stead. With 3,500mAh, it’s almost guaranteed that the Note 7 will have better battery life than its predecessor.

What do you think about the difference in battery capacity? Would it influence your decision to buy the Note 7? Let us know in the comments below.
