There have been whispers about the Samsung Galaxy S7 lineup boasting of an improved battery life. Time and again, the same rumour surfaced with every fresh leak and now more details have come to the forefront in that regard.

9to5Google got it hands on a FCC document and it appears that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge may be housing a large 3600mAh battery. It would put the S7 Edge right up there since not many devices in the market can claim to have this massive advantage. As noted by TechRadar, in comparison to its predecessor the Galaxy S6 Edge, this is a good 1000mAh addition. This could mean that there may be a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge which may arrive embedded with a large 3600mAh battery.

However, previous reports have indicated that just like its predecessor, the S7 Edge may only sport a 5.1-inch display. This led to the speculations about the Plus variant in the works. But a post by @evleaks has put a big question mark on that as well and nothing can be said with absolute certainty.

One thing is sure; the Galaxy S7 Edge model will have a lot to pack given that it is expected to house a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor with 4GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage capacities and a 12MP primary snapper amongst other specs. However, whispers suggest that the Galaxy S7 lineup will feature the Always On Display mode. The large battery on the S7 Edge will ensure that the device doesn’t easily run out of fuel when users are engaged in all the new features that the variant may arrive with.

As for the standard Samsung Galaxy S7 model, the handset is said to be hiding a 2,700mAh battery under its hood. While this is much smaller in comparison to the 3600mAh battery expected on the Galaxy S7 Edge variant, it is a bump over the 2,500mAh packed in the Galaxy S6. Keep watching this space for more news.
