samsung logoAccording to a recent teaser posted by LG the other day, it has been suggested that the upcoming LG G5 will have an always-on display. What does this mean? This means that users won’t need to press their phone’s sleep/wake button in order to see the time, date, and basic notifications. The information displayed will also be minimalist and appears to be black and white so as to save battery.

However it looks like the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a similar feature as well, at least according to a tweet by Eldar Murtazin in which he indicated that the feature will be present in the phone. He also answered some questions as to whether or not it will be a battery-draining feature, in which he said that it will only have a slight impact on battery life.

This also seems to corroborate an earlier claim by Murtazin in which he said that the Galaxy S7 will pack a huge battery, or at least one that’s big enough to watch videos at full brightness for about 17 hours straight. Of course it’s best taken with a grain of salt for now, but along with Evan Blass, Murtazin is one of the more reliable leaksters on the scene so it is possible that what he said is true.

Either way Samsung will be officially announcing the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge at their press conference at MWC 2016 this coming Sunday, so be sure to check back with us then for the details.
