Alleged Galaxy S6 battery images hint at 2,600 mAh capacity again

If you were holding on to hope that the battery on the Galaxy S6 won’t be as small in capacity as recent leaks have said it will be, then you might not like the latest scoop about Samsung’s upcoming flagship. Images of what is allegedly the battery pack for the Galaxy S6 have been posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, and they all show a battery that has a capacity of 2,600 mAh.

What makes it possible that these images are the real deal is the model number on the battery packs. The model number is EB-BG925ABE, which includes G925 in the middle. That’s expected to be the model number for the Galaxy S6 Edge, and since replacement batteries for the Galaxy S5 were codenamed EB-BG900BBC (where G900 is the model number of the S5), it’s entirely plausible that we’re looking at the batteries of the S6/S6 Edge here (not to mention leaks from Weibo often tend to be accurate.)

The thought of a 2,600 mAh battery on a flagship phone in 2015 is certainly scary, so it looks like Samsung is really confident on the power efficiency of its 14nm Exynos 7420 processor, and possibly the optimization of the S6′s software. Less than two weeks are left before the Galaxy S6 is set to go official, so it won’t be long before we find everything about the most anticipated smartphone this year.

They are going to use Exynos 7 chipset made on 14 nm process. These chips are supposedly going to reduce battery consumption by 35%. So even if the battery capacity is less, S6 might be more power efficient that S5 or Note 4. Plus a smaller battery might mean thinner and lighter design. I would have liked faux leather back with removable battery though. Those who want metal bodied premium looking phone, can go and get a Galaxy Prime instead.

Do you read like me “Secondary Lithium ion battery pack”. Is that a common legend in batteries?
Maybe you could remove it ….

WHY NON-REMOVABLE BATTERIES?? Samsung is turning into apple for android (not Xiaomi)

First,iPhone look-a-like design for S6 and now non-removable battery…… whats wrong with Samsung?

Note series FTW!

You people wanted an all alluminium chassis so you can partake in your fake “premium feel” nonsense that isn’t true at al. Now you have it, don’t complain about battery life now because you lot started it. Your desire to fit in has now come back to bite all of those who want this nonexistent “premium feel” in the ass.

If you are one who does not wish for this, forgive me and sign a petition to bring them back. 100,000 signatures required for Samsung to take notice and consider it.

Do you know how Gear S 3G smartwatch phone has a charger that doubles as a spare battery, to double the battery life on the go to 4 days charging the charger too? Well that’s because they are using High Density Polymer Lithium Batteries sealed in it, in first place. This S6 battery will be using the same materials for Safer, more high efficiency and longer lasting batteries. More expensive, but are better when considering safety and long battery life between charges. Logically…. when going to an all metal case, like everyone is clamoring for them to do, you have to go to a sealed case with battery non-removable. Plus why would they need to include super expensive wireless charging with externally removable batteries? Removable plus unibody all metal will naturally have to be a sealed unit with wireless charging to go with that as well!

But many benefits come with this design. Especially if they include a feature like with Gear S 3G Smartwatch phone. You’ll get thin full phone sized ultra thin wireless battery pad w/ a cable and wall converter charger. You can use the wireless charger pad/, that acts as both the charger and as a spare battery carried with you as a spare battery and charger with twice the battery life. Let’s put it this way, slap the that wireless ultra thin pad spare on back and it’ll charge your phone wirelessly without even being plugged in, on the go.

The battery part will be lighter, smaller, thinner and denser than typical Lithium Ion batteries used now. But again they are using Samsung SDI’s new Polymer Lithium Ion battery, developed with their LithiumAir Electric/hybrid car battery technology for fast on the go charging. It’s safer and longer lasting, because of the type of Polymer Solid Electrolytes they’re using, instead of ultra dangerous liquid filled batteries phones are all using now. They can be flexible and as you see here, no plastic fixed shape container, like present technology. The battery is somewhat malleable and carried in your pocket it forms to it without damage and could even capable of rolling up!

Then we have the ultimate battery features, with never having to be tethered to a wall charger, with only the charger spare battery pad ever needing to be plugged in to charge. Now we’ll have the spare battery, built into the wireless charging pad (like Gear S has with it’s charger not needing to be plugged into the wall, to charge your sealed in phone battery) for ultimate convenience with double the battery life available too!

Who is “You People”? What the heck are you talking about? 100,000 signatures on what? Are you high?

Probably >>> Note 5 with Non-removable battery

If true, it’s unfortunate that Samsung would choose to cut corners like this, especially with a flagship device. The quest to shave a millimeter here and there always comes with a cost, usually battery capacity.

Remember Note edge has a smaller battery than the Note 4, 3000 vs 3220Mah. I expect the same with the S6 and S edge. The S6 will get 2800mah
