Murtazin: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be powered by 3600mAh battery; August 2nd unveiling confirmed
For the last few weeks, we have heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will contain a 4000mAh battery. That would be a 33% improvement over the 3000mAh cell found on last year's Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and would match the battery on the Samsung Galaxy S7 active. But a fresh report published today, says that the battery on the Galaxy Note 7 will have a capacity of 3600mAh. If true, this would still provide a 20% hike in battery capacity for the next iteration of Sammy's high-end phablet.

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!
