Battery life is a huge point of contention between customers and smartphone manufacturers. Consumers have cried out, declaring that battery life needs to be improved, while manufacturers are still pursuing the goal of making slimmer and slimmer devices. The result has been a mixed bag, with manufacturers opting for new charging tech rather than increasing battery size.
Fast charging has become far more prevalent and plenty of manufacturers are continuing to offer different power saving options. But even though we charge devices faster and eek a bit more battery life out, the issue remains that most phones can barely make it through a full day on a single charge. As of now, the only real solution looks to be making batteries larger.
According to a new FCC filing, Samsung looks to be doing just that with the upcoming Galaxy S7 edge. The FCC filing for the device points out that it will be fitted with a whopping 3600mAh battery, which is significantly larger than last year’s 3000mAh unit. You can compare this new battery to the battery king, the DROID Turbo 2, which utilizes a 3750mAh battery. Unless the device demands extravagant amounts of power, the Galaxy S7 edge could rise to offer some of the best battery life available in a smartphone.
