Regular Galaxy S11 may or may not have a 4,300 mAh battery


Last updated: November 8th, 2019 at 13:12 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S11e might have a battery that’s considerably larger than the Galaxy S10e, as it was revealed earlier this week. However, a sizable increase in battery capacity may not be exclusive to just the smallest of the Galaxy S11 models, either. A certification for a battery with product code EB-BG985ABY suggests the regular Galaxy S11 might have the same battery capacity — 4,300 mAh — as the Galaxy Note 10+.

The regular Galaxy S11 will carry model number SM-G985/986, so it’s pretty much a given that the battery that has been certified belongs to the middle child of Samsung’s next flagship Galaxy S lineup. But, what’s interesting is that according to the certification, EB-BG985ABY is a “derived model” of a battery with product code EB-BN975ABU. That battery resides inside the Galaxy Note 10+, and this suggests the Galaxy S11 will have the same capacity as well.

Don’t get excited just yet

However, that’s not necessarily going to be the case. Last year, the two Galaxy Fold batteries were initially certified as “derived models” based on the Galaxy S10e’s battery. The Galaxy S10e has a 3,100 mAh battery, and that made everyone assume the Fold would have a combined battery capacity of 6,200 mAh. That’s not what happened – the Galaxy Fold’s battery is only barely larger than the battery on the Galaxy Note 10+.

Now, the regular Galaxy S11 could have a 4,300 mAh battery like the plus-sized Note 10. If the Galaxy S11e can have a 3,800 mAh battery, Samsung could certainly fit a 4,300 mAh cell inside the S11, and maybe even a 5,000 mAh battery on the Galaxy S11+. But, just because the S11 has been certified with the Note 10+ battery doesn’t make it a surefire possibility, so we would recommend not getting too excited just yet.
