Customers always appreciate more battery life. It’s an area where there’s always room for improvement, regardless of device. A new report suggests that Samsung is now considering an increase in battery capacity for next year’s Galaxy S23.
It remains to be seen whether this increase will be applied to the entire line or just the entry-level model. Previous reports have suggested that the entire lineup could get larger batteries.
The entire Galaxy S23 lineup may not see an increase
A new report out of South Korea claims that the base model Galaxy S23 will see a minor 5% increase in its battery capacity compared to the Galaxy S22’s 3,700mAh battery. At this time, it is not clear if a capacity increase will also be made for the + and Ultra models.
Space remains a major constraint when trying to increase battery size. The goal is always to fit a larger battery without having to make the device unnecessarily thick. Therefore, we must rely on advances in battery technology. Samsung SDI, one of the battery suppliers for Galaxy devices, is now using a stacking technology to increase the capacity of small batteries.
The battery for the Galaxy S23+ was recently seen receiving certification. The image was blurry so his ability could not be made out. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will also likely 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 more information about the new series leaked before then.
