Galaxy S8 battery size might be similar to the Galaxy Note 7


Last updated: February 9th, 2017 at 09:39 UTC+02:00

There are a lot of conflicting reports these days about the Galaxy S8 and it’s bound to continue right up to the release of Samsung’s new flagship smartphone. It was reported last week that Samsung had given its batteries suppliers with an updated production roadmap which includes 3,250mAh and 3,750mAh battery cells for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus respectively. Today’s report brings a new set of figures.

According to a report out of South Korea, the 5.7-inch Galaxy S8 is going to feature a 3,000mAh battery while the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus would tout a 3,500mAh battery. You may recall that the Galaxy Note 7 also had a 3,500mAh battery. The report quotes an unnamed Samsung official who says that the company decided to go with these batteries after completing a range of tests. Batteries for the Galaxy S8 will reportedly be supplied by Samsung SDI and Murata Manufacturing of Japan.

The figures might be worrying for some who think that the handset is just a bit too big for a battery of this size to provide any proper longevity. It might even be considered as a repeat of what Samsung did with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Nevertheless, nothing is confirmed right now so it would be better to hold judgment on this until more information comes up.
