#SamsungGalaxy #GalaxyS8 – Samsung Galaxy S8 to Have the Same Battery Capacity as the S7 and Note 7 : Samsung is believed to feature the same battery capacity on the Galaxy S8, as on the two previous flagships, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7. The Investor reported that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will come with 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries.
The information should be taken with a grain of salt, but these two battery capacities are quite plausible considering that the Galaxy S8 will be about the same size as the Galaxy S7, only the display will be larger.
“After completing a rage of tests, Samsung made a final decision to deploy the battery capacity for the two S8 variants,” a Samsung official said.
The Galaxy S8 is expected to come in two variants, one with a 5.7-inch display and the other with a 6.0-inch screen. The rumored battery capacities should be enough to power the smartphone, considering that it will also pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC, with enhanced power efficiency compared to previous chipset models.
Samsung will be starting mass production soon
The Galaxy S8 Plus would have the same battery capacity as the Galaxy Note 7, but will undergo rigorous testing to make sure that it doesn’t pose a safety risk. Samsung did announce an 8 battery tests that each device will undergo before being prepped for shipping.
Samsung is said to have already received phone components in large volumes for starting the mass production of the Galaxy S8. The report also mentions that Samsung tapped Murata Manufacturing from Japan for the supply of Galaxy S8 batteries.
Moreover, China’s ATL and Samsung SDI are believed to be the other two major manufacturers of batteries for the upcoming flagship. However, Samsung SDI’s credibility was quite damaged after the Note 7 fiasco and one of its plants caught fire recently.
It would be interesting to see who will manufacture the battery inside the new flagship, if Samsung has indeed picked the same suppliers as for the Galaxy Note 7, this might affect the market perception about the new phone.
