Galaxy Note 7 might have a smaller battery than GS7 edge

Latest leak points to a 3,500mAh battery for Samsung’s upcoming Note.

There’s been no shortage of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 leakage of late, and the latest details to sneak out of a Korean carrier gives some intriguing info on the phone’s battery capacity.

A prematurely published spec listing by mobile operator SKT lists the Note 7 with a 3,500mAh battery — an increase over the 3,000mAh cell of the Note 5, but a decrease of 100mAh compared to the Galaxy S7 edge. Other details in the listing include dimensions: 73.9 x 153.5 x 7.9mm — a small increase in thickness compared to both the S7 edge and Note 5 — and a weight of 169 grams — down 2 grams from last year’s Note.

However small it is, a drop in battery capacity relative to the S7 edge may disappoint enthusiasts hoping for a beefier battery in what’s likely to be a 5.7-inch handset. (One possible explanation is that space that would otherwise have been occupied by the battery is instead take up by the S Pen.)

In any case, if the specs listed here are accurate, the Note 7 should still pack a decent bump in battery life compared to the previous model. And there’s no telling how Samsung might be saving power elsewhere, for example with more efficient internals or display tech.
