Samsung's Galaxy S7 may impress battery-hungry users; apparently, you will be able to squeeze two days of use out of it on a single charge.

We're just two weeks from Samsung's big reveal of the Galaxy S7 and more details have emerged about the handset. This time, it's with regards to its battery life.

The Galaxy S7, according to Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, will last up to two days on a single charge. He said that the handset's battery lasts a whopping 17 hours when playing video with the screen brightness up full.

Murtazin took to Twitter to share screenshots from a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S7 that showed that it lasted for two days with screen brightness at 75% and LTE always on.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are expected to pack 3,000 mAh and 3,500 mAh batteries respectively. Between an increase in capacity, Android optimisations, and more efficient CPUs and GPUs, we may not need to charge Samsung's new smartphones so frequently.

Samsung will announce the Galaxy S7 on February 21st.
