According to Eldar Murtazin, a Russian mobile journalist who provided accurate information in the past years, the upcoming Galaxy S7 will longer battery life, supporting up to 17 hours of continuous video playback. This means fours extra hours compared to what the current Galaxy S6 is offering, but the big surprise is that the new flagship will achieve this performance with the brightness set to the maximum.
The Galaxy S6 came with a battery of 2550mAh, and it was non-removable, which pissed off a lot of fans. But, if the rumors are true, the Galaxy S7 will have a bigger battery of 3000mAh, and its capacity will be identical to that of the Galaxy Note 5, which offers 15 hours of video playback time. But the Note 5 had a 5.7-inch screen and was powered by an Exynos 7420 octa core processor clocked at 2.1GHz, which was backed by 4GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S7 is expected to come with two variants of processors: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890, which was built by Samsung on a 14nm second generation LPP node. Compared to the Exynos 7420, the Exynos 8890 will be a lot more powerful and power efficient.
A few days ago, the Galaxy S7 was spotted on different benchmarks alongside its dual-curved edge sibling, which was listed with the model number SM-G935F. This device will have the same internal specifications, and the score obtained in the single-core test was 1363 points, while the in the multi-core test, it scored 4951 points. These results are for the Snapdragon processor, because the Exynos 8890 variant managed to obtain higher scores in the same benchmark.
The Galaxy S7 will sport the same screen size as its predecessor, 5.1-inch, but the resolution will be kept at 1440 x 2560 pixels, despite of the rumors which said that Samsung will move to 4K resolution. On the back side of the device, which will be made again from glass, will be placed a duo BRITECELL camera of 12MP, while the front camera will have the same resolution of 5MP.
