Galaxy Note 20 battery might be almost as big as Galaxy Note 20+


Last updated: May 29th, 2020 at 10:50 UTC+02:00

We are a few months away from the Galaxy Note 20’s official release, but a lot is already known about the two upcoming smartphones, including their screen sizes, colors, camera specifications, and charging speeds. A few days ago, the battery capacity of the Galaxy Note 20+ was revealed. Now, we have found information regarding the battery capacity of the phone’s smaller sibling, the Galaxy Note 20.

According to the information we dug up from China’s 3C certification database, the Galaxy Note 20 will use a 4,300mAh cell. The battery carries model number EB-BN980ABY, which has a rated capacity of 4,170mAh, and that is different from the 4,000mAh capacity that was revealed last month. Even the Galaxy Note 10+ had a rated battery capacity of 4,170mAh, but Samsung marketed its typical capacity as 4,300mAh, which means the company will do the same with the Galaxy Note 20.

Going by the new information, there’s just a 200mAh difference between the battery capacities of the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20+. The Galaxy Note 20+ will most probably have a typical battery capacity of 4,500mAh. It is being rumored that the Galaxy Note 20 has a 6.7-inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 20+ could sport a 6.9-inch display, so there might not be a noticeable difference between the actual battery life of the two phones.

The Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20+ are expected to feature 120Hz Super AMOLED Infinity-O displays, S Pen stylus, Exynos 992 processor (or Snapdragon 865 in some markets), 16GB RAM, second-generation Samsung security chip, at least 25W fast charging, fast Qi wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging.

If Samsung launches the Galaxy Note 20 with a 4300mAh battery and the Galaxy Note 20+ with a 4500mAh battery, which phone would you choose? Let us know in the comments section.
