The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus smartphones have been equipped with 3000mAh batteries, according to a new leak. This is certainly a cause of concern since that battery size is less than that of the previous two Note phablets.
However, there are a number of factors that contribute towards battery consumption other than just the size of the power pack. The latest Android software has a ton of improvements, and the updated TouchWiz UI of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus is also expected to come with enhancements to its power consumption abilities.
Above all, the new Exynos chipset of the two smartphones will also make a big difference in their battery lives. Evan Blass who is of course better known for his notorious Twitter handle @evleaks, has tweeted that both the upcoming Samsung handsets will ship with 3000mAh batteries.
An accompanying image from his tweet tells us that either one of the two devices or both of them will be able to provide 21 hours of talktime and 336 hours of standby time. If true, this will be great news for those wishing to buy any of the Galaxy Note 5 or the S6 Edge Plus.

These two offerings are almost confirmed to arrive later today at an event the company will be holding in New York. A lot of their specs as well as some images have been leaked in the past, having left very little to imagination.
Stay tuned for direct news from the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus unveiling event which is scheduled for today.
