Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ at its Unpacked event, scheduled for Aug. 13. Even though many of the configurations pertaining to both handsets have been revealed, the battery specifications remain unconfirmed. But now, a new leak points to the exact battery capacity, and it’s quite disappointing.
Earlier rumors had it that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ would house a 3,000 mAh battery unit, whereas the Galaxy Note 5 would get a much bigger 4,100 mAh unit, notes Phone Arena. But this information might not be true, as the latest report from the credible tipster Evan Blass of @evleaks fame says both the Galaxy devices will come equipped with only 3,000 mAh batteries. Meanwhile, Blass has also revealed the battery life of these units. Both the handsets will reportedly be able to provide up to 21 hours of talk time or roughly up to 336 hours / 14 days of standby time.
As for the Galaxy Note 5 specifications, Tech Zoom says the device will come with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, aided by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 515 ppi. It will be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7422 processor and backed by a phenomenal 4 GB RAM unit.
The Galaxy Note 5 will come equipped with 32 GB or 64 GB of built-in storage capacity. It will feature a 16 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP selfie snapper at the front. Plus, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS will help in running the handset.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ specifications include a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display and Quad HD screen resolution. On the hardware end, an Exynos 7420 chip in combination with an octa-core CPU will be powering the smartphone. Moreover, the same 4 GB RAM unit, 32 GB / 64 GB of built-in storage space and 16 MP / 5 MP snapper combinations will be part of the Edge variant as well. Samsung has not confirmed the specifications of either phone thus far.
