The company is making use of a large number of an unused pile of Note 7 as a battery security guard. When asked about this monitoring cameras, a Samsung representative explained the reason behind this as the Note 7s used here are equipped with different, lower capacity batteries. So, the overall capacity of a battery is irrelevant since they are connected to USB cable all the time.

With the launch of S8, the South Korean giant is trying re-establish the lost faith on their Galaxy smartphones. Samsung Vice President of R&D for Mobile Bookeun Oh says, "The battery life is extended longer than that of the S7 thanks to adding energy-management software and incorporating energy-efficient component[s]. Furthermore, we focused on maintaining the durability of the battery over the long term, over hundreds of charging cycles."
