Murtazin: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be powered by 3600mAh battery; August 2nd unveiling confirmed
posted by Alan F. / Jun 28, 2016, 5:58 PM
The rumor about a 3600mAh battery comes from Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, whose track record when it comes to forecasting specs is rather uneven. Murtazin says that even with the lower capacity battery, the Galaxy Note 7 will squeeze out 20-hours of video playbook with the phablet at maximum brightness. And don't forget that we are talking about a large 5.8-inch display that needs to be powered.
Murtazin also confirms that the phablet will be officially unveiled during the next Samsung Unpacked event to be held on August 2nd. And on that date, we should know everything about the highly anticipated device, including its battery life. We also will discover whether this version of the Galaxy Note will be the first to come with IP certification. The rumored IP68 rating would allow the phablet to be submerged in more than 1 meter (3.2 feet) of water for as long as 30-minutes, and emerge unscathed.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 should be launched in the middle of August, which gives us plenty of time to field more leaks about the device. Keep checking in for the latest!

Here's hoping for 4000mah.

Non-Removable = FAIL Less than 4000mah = FAIL

There will be one version with SD and one with Exynos same as the S7s. Heres hoping the new SD821 is better when it comes to power consumption than the SD820 is.

Old joke The 820 is doesn't overheat After 2 hours of GFXBench Manhattan 3.1, the OP3 lost only 1.5 fpshttp://images.anandtech.com/do
That's the smallest drop of any phone tested by AnandTech, less than the S7 or 6S (to be fair, the S7's 1440p vs the OP3's 1080p)
But the 8890 and A9 do still have the lead in terms of efficiency copy.png

I carry 2 spare batteries when hiking in the snow. 3 days ago I got halfway through the 3rd battery in a day on my Note 4 shooting video, taking photos and using tracking apps. I know very few people will have the same requirements as me but I will miss this instant charge option. The water IP68 certification would be nice but I've done well without it so far.

Biggest problem in putting larger battery is the inbuilt S-Pen which occupy a large space in NOTE's chassis. Otherwise Samsung can easily put 4500+ battery in Note 7.

It's not about how large the battery is it's about software optimization and I believe samsung i's excellent in that so 3600mah in a Samsung phone is like or may pass 4000 mah battery in another phone
