Anatel certification reveals the battery sizes of the upcoming Galaxy S10 lineup


Last updated: January 30th, 2019 at 12:41 UTC+02:00

Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy S10 at the Unpacked event on February 20. As the launch date draws closer, more and more information about the upcoming flagship devices is leaking online. While some of these leaks are in the form of blurry Galaxy S10 pictures from anonymous sources, others are a bit more official like the device certifications from regulatory bodies around the world.

One such certification from the Brazilian telecom regulatory body, Anatel, has revealed the battery sizes of the upcoming Galaxy S10 lineup. These certifications were spotted online last week itself, but since all the three Galaxy S10 variants were mentioned to sport a 3,000 mAh battery, the information looks erroneous given Samsung’s tradition of packing larger batteries in ‘Plus’ or larger variants of its devices.

Only the larger and pricier Galaxy S10+ will get a 4,000 mAh battery

The Anatel listings have been updated recently, and they now reflect what we believe to be the correct battery capacities for the three Galaxy S10 variants. According to the updated information, the Galaxy S10 Lite will come with a 3,000mAh battery, the Galaxy S10 with 3,300mAh and the larger Galaxy S10+ with 4,000mAh capacity.

The listed battery capacities seem to be in line with the different screen sizes of the Galaxy S10 models and Samsung’s general strategy of packing larger batteries in bigger models. Galaxy Note 9 was the first Samsung flagship smartphone to pack a 4,000mAh battery, and it was one of the major selling points of the device. Although it is nice to see Samsung bringing the same long battery life to at least one of the Galaxy S10 variants, it is also disappointing that customers have to opt for the bigger and more expensive models to get better battery life.

Device certifications are often a good source of information about unreleased models, but it still possible, even if improbable, for them to be misleading or incorrect. Do remember, nothing is official until Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S10 lineup next month.
