Much is unknown about the upcoming flagship devices from Samsung, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, that are slated to make a debut at Mobile World Congress later this month at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event. While there is likely to be some similarities between the new devices from Samsung this year and the current Galaxy S6 crop, there are sure to be some differences as well, and of course Samsung will surely introduce what it believes will be improvements over the previous model smartphones it put out for the flagship Galaxy S series in 2015. One of those areas was suggested in a post yesterday to be battery life, stating that the Galaxy S7 is rumored to be coming with a potential two-day battery life, which would of course put the new device at a vast improvement over the current offering.
The rumor had come from a reportedly well-known tech blogger who tweeted about his experience with the phone, named Eldar Murtazin, although now it seems that what the tweets were actually referring to are not the Galaxy S7 as the original tweet never even mentions that name. So, it would seem that the original meaning of Murtazin’s tweets was lost somewhere in translation and picked up by various sites, including our own.
Today, though, clarification has been brought forth that shows Murtazin certainly was speaking about the great battery life he had experienced with new Samsung devices, but he was not referring to the Galaxy S7, rather he was referring to the newly launched Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 devices which had just recently launched. While it would have been nice to bask in the positive thought of a battery in Samsung’s upcoming flagship device that could last its users two days without a charge, the reality is that there is no way to know if that is possible just yet since Samsung hasn’t even announced the phone, so it’s unlikely that any individuals outside of Samsung’s employ could have been able to spend time with the device to verify its battery longevity. This doesn’t mean that the Galaxy S7 won’t have great battery life, but it does mean that the rumors surrounding the post about it lasting two days is simply incorrect information.
