New leak points towards the Galaxy Note 7 sporting a 3,500mAh battery

Ever since the Galaxy Note 7 surfaced in an import listing back in May, the rumor mill has been spinning at warp speed with regards to what internals it will pack. Samsung has already confirmed that the device will feature an iris scanner, and multiple hands-on photographs point towards it also sporting a curved display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256GB via microSD), but one area that has always been a little gray is battery size.

Up until now, that is.

Earlier today, South Korea Telecom prematurely published an information page for the baseline variant of the Galaxy Note 7 carrying the model number SM-N930S. A lot of the details on the page corroborate what we already know, such as the handset featuring a QHD display. However, the web page does reveal that the device will feature a 3,500mAh battery, which 100mAh less than the cell that ships on board the Galaxy S7 edge. It also states that the unit itself weighs in at a mere 169g, which is 2g less than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5.

Are you satisfied with a 3,500mAh battery or were you hoping for a larger capacity? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below.

It would be extremely sad if the battery is not 4000mAh. Seriously, smaller than the S7 Edge…

I’d rather buy the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe then. At least it has a metal unibody and not glass front and back.

I would have liked a 4000 mAh with an IR Blaster also with 40g more …. but at the end I’ll buy in any case.

The 2nd of August will show us, but the closer we get the less we might get for more money. No 6gb, no 4000mah, no removable battery, pointless iris scanner, no flat option, same 5.7 inch display but curved therefore smaller. Concluding, the excitement for the note 7 is fading and more and more will wait for the maybe flat note 8. To many compromises for so much money

Kinda funny reading these comments. Year after year it’s always the same. If you’re looking for a phone to end all phones, one that’s going to easily last you 5 years while keeping up with the rest of the industry, it’s not going to happen… ever. That’s a horrible business model for one and the technology and demands don’t stop growing either. Sure it would be nice but then what are we going to do? Many people enjoy upgrading, that much is very obvious. So of course the industry is going to play to that trend. Why act surprised? None… Read more »

I think I won’t get a huge battery able to super heavy 1 full day usage from Samsung flagship forever and ever…. I just want to use my money to buy a really really call flagship phone with excellent battery life, thats only, not buy a flagship phone need charge twice a day, or still need hanging power bank on my neck to everywhere

Samsung you hear me???

That Galaxy Note 7 is a real honey! Mmmwah!

Yea 3500 is less than expected. It must have been more. I don’t care about the so called software and hardware optimizations to help lower the battery drain. If it is possible to put a 4KmAH in that phone (Which is possible) they must have put it there.

If this is true, then that is just stupid. 4000mah tank should have been used. This was one of the main harp points of the Note5. Too small battery/non-removable

As an S6 edge+ user I can say that 4GB is plenty of RAM. The battery will be great with faster charging and a better cooling system. 64GB memory is fine for me, still not seen the storage warning yet, coming up to 10 months of usage and device works flawlessly. So for the Note 7, what I’d really like is a proper cooling system to keep the battery healthy, a bigger battery is always welcomed but 6GB of RAM isn’t really necessary. I can still go back to a game of paused 3 hours ago with no problem.

If 4 gb ram then bye bye sam

Compared to my Note 4: -Bigger Battery -Same Screen Size (but edged); same resolution -More Ram -Faster Processor -Better camera -weighs less -will probably get Nougat -water and dust resistant -expandable memory (possibly faster memory capabilities with UFS) -new generation of Touchwiz (or whatever they call it) I’m trying to find a bad point in this? If you compare to the S7 and S7 edge that came out this year, then yeah…you’ll probably be disappointed. My only issue is lack of removable battery. I suffered for a year with, what I thought, was a bad sd slot in my Note… Read more »

Ir blaster ?

Just read the fine-print in those extra warranty deals … they do not cover consumable parts – at least most of them (and battery, which is one, usually does not get a warranty of more than 6 months …). I have 3 bloated Samsung batteries so far (S3, Note4, Gear 1). I definitively will not spend that money for a cased-in battery phone. All the other features, yes, could be a compromise – but my bad streak of batteries and the discussions I had with Samsung warranty related to why are they like a small tiny pillow after 7 months… Read more »

Should be a great phone regardless, still the tech nerd in me would like to see 6gb ram and 4k battery. Not so patiently waiting…….

I was hoping it’d be 4,000 mAh & 6GB of RAM.

Looks like Eldar Murtazin was right this time. Evleaks said 6gb ram and 5.8 screen and 4000mAh.

I was expecting a 4000 mah battery and 6 GB of ram. Samsung should give the note 7 a 4000 mah and 6 GB ram and the Base model begins at 64 gb ram. Then the note 7 would be the killer flagship of all this year. But sadly I feel Samsung is not going to that after all this latest rumours

The more i hear about Note 7, the more they hold back. for that price i would expect at least 4000mah, dual speaker ir blaster, 6GB is optional.

August 2 will tell us all.

6Gb ram seams like an odd number to me but that may be the PC side of me an iron blaster would be sweet as for battery well depends on how hungry the rest is personally waiting on note 8 I always upgrade every second cycle even on pc

JayKaos

To early to say. I’d like bigger but with new display tech, cpus and ram/storage using less and less power it could be decent. I’d like 3 days min so more like 4 days the way thay test..

The more I read about the Note 7, the more disappointed I am.

We went from a 5.8 screen to a 5.7.
From 4000 mAh battery, to 3600, to 3500.
From Android 7 to 6.
From 6GB of RAM to 4GB.

It’s basically a slightly bigger S7 Edge with USB 3.1 type C and a first generation Iris scanner, which just like the first generation fingerprint scanner on the Note 4, will be clunky and not very good.

JayKaos
JayKaos

5.7 inch is fine imo I’d like a lil more rez. A 14Mp camera with larger cencor for better low light pics, Oled RGB display , less bezil all around no edge or one that’s a separate display (note 4 edge style) one side not borh. 8G ram and 128G storage stock.. Oh ditch the glass back for metal stainless/alloy or other metal..non furious could work..

It will be 5.4 because it’s edge one so…5.4 flat + 0.3 curve…

Rly wish this is a fake one. This would be just stupid to have such a low battery and low RAM…

The 3000mah battery on the Note 5 is great, so 3500mah will be better anyway, but we will just have to wait and see.

Imo note 5 battery sucks love my note 5 but I don’t even get a day out of it.. I get 2.8 days out of my Gear s2 and I use it ascmuch as the phone sure the phone dose the hard work but still..

As always samsung does not listen to its customers. higher prices and above do not deign to mount a decent battery.

doesn’t make sense! and if it is true that will be a very stupid thing

Less than the S7E while the phone is bigger? That is odd. Part of it can be explained by the stylus holder, but that haven’t hold them back in the past.

I fear the S7E and N7 are quite interchangable. Screen size only differs 0,2″ and the stylus. The gap between Note and S series used to be bigger.

I was hoping for 4000, but I am okay with 3500
but why 4GB ram 🙁

maccyb

They’ll use whatever ram is going to give the optimum performance. I don’t get hung up on the ram. I will expect it to run silky smooth, if it does it with 4gb, then an extra 2gb of ram is superfluous. If it needs 6gb, it will have 6gb.

warlockba

Actually it depends, RAM has not only to do with “running smooth” but also with multitasking. If it is running smooth, then it meets the bare minimum to not make Android swap in and out of memory the launcher, desktop, icons and the basic Apps / Services running in the background. Now if you need to multitask between let’s say two heavier memory usage apps then the more RAM you have, the less chances will be to have your previous App killed (the one you do not currently have in foreground) – this is where the 6GB would shine …… Read more »
