Posted March 11, 2020 07:31:52As part of their ongoing effort to eliminate hotspots and the problems associated with them, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are now getting a new battery and software update.
The update will remove the need for a SIM card to get the phone charged, as well as a battery backup function to protect the battery from overheating.
The device itself is now able to run on a standard 2,500mAh battery.
While the Galaxy Note 8 is still the device to get, Samsung is pushing the update to the Note 7, S7, S8, S9, and the Note 10, and to the Galaxy S8 and S9+.
While the battery will last for about two days on a single charge, the S9+ has a 3,000mAh battery, while the Note 9 and the S10+ both have a 4,000 and 5,000 mAh batteries, respectively.
The new battery will be the same size as the one found in the Note 8, and will be more durable, the company said.
The Galaxy Note 9+ and S10+, however, will only be available in black.
Both the Note9 and S11+ will be available as a white device, but the Note X and S12+ will only offer a black variant.
Samsung has also added a new feature to its mobile hotspot solution called the ‘Power Mode’.
This new feature allows users to set the battery to automatically shut off the device when the device is idle.
This feature will last up to 15 minutes, or until the device reaches a maximum charge of 20 percent, whichever comes first.
