The Samsung Galaxy S23 may get a slightly larger battery


Last updated: September 22nd, 2022 at 07:51 UTC+02:00

Customers always appreciate more battery life. It’s one area where there’s always room for improvement, regardless of the device. A new report suggests that Samsung is now considering a battery capacity increase for next year’s Galaxy S23.

Whether this increase will be applied across the entire lineup or just the entry-level model remains to be seen. Earlier reports have hinted that the entire lineup might get bigger batteries.

The whole Galaxy S23 lineup may not see an increase

A new report out of South Korea claims that the base Galaxy S23 model is going to see a minor increase of 5% in its battery capacity compared to the Galaxy S22‘s 3,700mAh battery. It’s unclear at this point in time whether a capacity increase would also be made for the + and Ultra models.

Space remains a major constraint when trying to increase the battery size. The goal is always to fit a larger battery without having to make the device unnecessarily thick. Therefore, advancements in battery technology need to be relied upon. Samsung SDI, one of the suppliers of batteries for Galaxy devices, is now using a stacking technology to increase the capacity of small batteries.

The battery for the Galaxy S23+ was recently spotted receiving its certification. The image was blurry so its capacity couldn’t be made out. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is also likely going to have the same 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S23 series early next year. We’ll likely see a lot more information about the new series being leaked before then.
