Murtazin claims the 3,600 mAh Galaxy Note 7 battery will get you 20.5 hours of video playback at max brightness, indicating he has either seen documentation himself or spoken to someone internally. The Galaxy Note 7 launch date of August 2 has already been leaked multiple times and seemingly confirmed since a promotional poster was leaked a couple of weeks ago.
There is nothing to doubt about the launch date but the battery size will undoubtedly disappoint many if it turns out to be true. Considering the typical 5.7-inch screen size of the Note series, 3,600 mAh isn’t a particularly huge battery to power that large a QHD screen.
After all, the Galaxy S7 Edge has the same sized battery and it is only a 5.5-inch device. Some rumors have even claimed the Note 7 display will increase to 5.8-inches this year. Still, the 5.7-inch QHD Galaxy Note 5 only had a 3,000 mAh battery, so even while 3,600 mAh would be a 20% increase you know it will still get called out for not being bigger than the S7 Edge’s battery.
As it now stands with leaks and rumors, the unofficial Galaxy Note 7 specs sheet reads as follows: 5.7-5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, 64/128/256 GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, 12 MP camera with dual-pixel PDAF, 5 MP front-facing camera, 3,600 mAh battery, iris scanner and the new Grace UX on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
