As soon as all the major launches of the year are done and dusted with, the tech community has shifted its focus towards next year’s flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S23 lineup. While leaks are pouring in for the devices that are still a good 3-4 months away from debuting, they are limited to mainly the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra variants.
We already have some information regarding the battery capacities of the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra variants, but nothing was mentioned about the Galaxy S23 vanilla model. Fortunately, a prominent leaker, Digital Chat Station, has shared some information about the battery capacity of the Galaxy S23 base model on Weibo.
The Galaxy S23 vanilla mode will purportedly have a 3,900mAh battery
As per the tip, the Samsung Galaxy S23 will come with a rated battery capacity of 3,785mAh. This translates to a typical 3,900mAh battery. If this is true, which we will know at a later stage, then this would make for a 200mAh battery capacity increase on the Galaxy S23 base model compared to the Galaxy S22’s tiny 3,700mAh battery.
Frankly, 3,900mAh isn’t a massive battery, and now all eyes will be on how Samsung tweaks the chipset for more energy efficiency and improved software experience. On the other hand, the Galaxy S23+ is rumored to get a 4,700mAh battery, up from the 4,500mAh on the Galaxy S22+. The Ultra variant will reportedly keep the same 5,000mAh battery.
There are other reports that suggest Samsung could launch the upcoming Galaxy S23 lineup in a limited number of colors. Also, the launch could happen earlier than when the Galaxy S22 series was launched. The official renders of the Galaxy S23 Ultra and, as per the leaks, the difference in design lies in the curvature radius of the phone’s edge.
