Leading rumors and speculations at one point indicated that Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones would pack larger batteries, especially in comparison to their predecessors. However, as recently reported, this does not seem like the case. According to a report published by Uber Gizmo, recent reports have suggested that the new handsets will retain the 3,000mAh battery and 3,500mAh batteries. The battery sizes are the same as what appeared in Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. The Uber Gizmo report carries alleged images of Galaxy S9 parts. These photos reveal the battery capacities of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Furthermore, spare batteries for Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones with model numbers, SM-G960 and SM-G965 have shown up on Union Repair. For those who aren’t aware, Union Repair is an online wholesale store for mobile repair parts. The same online store also has Galaxy S9 smartphone’s charging port flex cable listed as well.
“The batteries mentioned online for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus have 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh capacities respectively. If they are accurate, it means that the new handsets will have the same battery capacity as their predecessors,” the report by Uber Gizmo reads. In other words, battery life improvements will depend on the improved power efficiency of other internal components as well as software optimizations. We are not sure whether this is a good thing for Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones.
Several indications indicate a possibility of more significant battery sizes for Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones. The Galaxy S9 was spotted at a telecom regulator in Brazil, which mentioned the handset to be running 3,000mAh battery. Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy S9 on February 25th and will confirm all of the details about its new flagship then.
