As we are getting closer to the Samsung Galaxy S8 official launch expected to happen on 29 March, there is pretty much nothing left for anticipation except to actually get hands-on experience of the device itself.
Now, an unnamed official from Samsung has leaked information regarding the battery sizes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Android Smartphones.
We were expecting the battery sizes of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to be larger than the current flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. However, it looks like after all the battery related issues from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung will be opting for better battery manufacturing technique and software optimization over increasing the battery size.
The leaked information states that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a 3000mAh battery whereas it’s bigger brother, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a slightly bigger 3500mAh battery. As compared to the 3000mAh battery in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the 3600mAh Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge battery, this is nothing to boast of.
However, we do expect Samsung to take battery manufacturing quite serious this time along with optimization in their TouchWiz user interface to improve battery backup times.
Is Samsung doing a good job by keeping the battery size low and focusing on battery technology? Or do you prefer bigger battery over software optimization for better consumption? Do leave a comment below on your views.
