Samsung is readying itself to unveil a brand new Galaxy Note 5 successor that is believed to be the Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung was expected to release a Galaxy Note 6 as a successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 5. However, due to what are termed as inconsistencies in the naming of its Galaxy Note series in comparison to the Galaxy S series, the company has reportedly decided to skip the Galaxy Note 6 in favor of a Galaxy Note 7 to sync with the likes of Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and S7 Active.
Up until now, Samsung has not gone public with any news related to this upcoming phone. However, as usual, prying eyes cannot be denied entry into Samsung’s chests in a bid to fish out information with respect to the upcoming smartphone.
Now, other than the renowned Evan Blass’ confirmations regarding the unveiling of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on August 2, another serial leaker from Russia, Eldar Murtazin, has also come out with the same information with respect to this August 2 release date for the Note 7.
While this should come as good news for those anticipating the release of this phablet, the new report also comes with some disappointments. Unlike previous leaks that have pointed towards a 4000mAh battery unit for the Galaxy Note 7, similar to what the Galaxy S7 Active has, Murtazin claims that the new phone will be kept alive with a 3600mAh battery unit, similar to what the Galaxy S7 Edge packs. Still, this will represent an increment to last year’s 3000mAh used on the Galaxy Note 5.
What seems rather contradictory about this report is that the Murtazin claims the 3600mAh battery will be able to max 20 hours of video playback on a single charge. This is not something you can easily achieve on a 5.7-inch display screen at full brightness unless there are huge software and hardware optimizations that will ensure this happens. In addition, it has been reported that the Note 7 will come with a slightly larger screen size of 5.8 inches, which makes this milestone far from a reality.
