Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ battery capacities confirmed by parts retailer

It certainly seems like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will have to depend on improvements to processor and software efficiency to exceed the endurance of their predecessors. Recent rumors pegged the Galaxy S9 and S9+ battery capacities at 3,000 mAh and 3,500 mAh respectively, the same as the S8 and S8+, and a certain telecom regulator had recently offered proof that the rumors were true. We’re now getting more evidence thanks to listings for replacement batteries for both devices on an online store.

More evidence for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ battery capacities

The batteries have been listed by Union Repair, a “cell phone repair parts & tools wholesaler online store” based out of China, with the battery model numbers confirming that they belong to the S9 and S9+ (G960 and G965). The same store also has a listing for the charging port flex cable for the Galaxy S9, with the full model number of the device listed on the flex cable as well.

Now, there’s a chance at least the battery listings could have been manipulated, but at this point in time, it’s not impossible for parts retailers to be getting inventory for the S9 and S9+. Initial sales of the two phones are expected to commence in mid-March, so it’s not like there’s a lot of time left for Samsung to prepare retailers, carriers, and smartphone stores across the world with accessories and parts related to its upcoming flagships.

What’s your opinion on Samsung using the same batteries as the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on the S9 and S9+? Are you still hoping the retail devices have slightly higher battery capacity?

Samsung is scared like hell to increase the battery size. Yet phones with same chassis have much larger batteries. S9 is a big meh phone.

Competition with similar size phones alao have 6gb ram and dual lens camera

Samsung is just playing safe to boast “profit” though I don’t know why anyone would buy this over the s8 which is thiner and cheaper.

same again… When are they going to start taking battery life more seriously – the Note7 was about battery manufacturing, it wasn’t because it was large capacity – you get phones with 4000mAh batteries that are not exploding. No, I’ll find it hard to recommend the S9s to anyone at this rate – its looking more and more like laziness and profits instead of innovation and customer satisfaction. Its all very conflicting, the hardware barely seems to be changing but the software will be everything new. guess we’ll find out in 24 days. Seriously though – those battery capacities with… Read more »

TBH I was a bit disappointed with S8 lifetime. When I’m outside with my S3 frontier connected over BT it won’t last full day. Hope S9 will do a way better due CPU and software. 🙁
