Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is a solid smartphone that is now available at ridiculously low prices. However, with the Galaxy S11, we now know Samsung is aiming a lot higher.
Noticed by the ever-alert GalaxyClub.nl, Safety Korea’s web site (assume FFC for Samsung’s home country of South Korea) has simply publicly licensed the battery for Samsung’s entry-stage Galaxy S11e, and it merely exhibits how large the company is thinking.
Its smartphone connection is tied to the ‘G980’, a part of its identity. As noted by SamMobile, Samsung at all times ties the two collectively, so, for instance, G970 batteries had been within the SM-G97xx Galaxy S10 line-up, and G960 batteries had been in SM-G96xx Galaxy S9 models. The Galaxy S11 series is the SM-G98xx range.
And right here is the place it will get interesting. Whereas the capacity is blurred, the rated battery capability of 14.36W will be seen, and the standard smartphone operation of 3.85 volts means we’re taking a look at a circa 3,800 mAh battery. That’s 700 mAh larger than the Galaxy S10e, which was already a cellphone with a good battery life.
Moreover, the motivations are clear. Apple’s iPhone 11 range has massively increased battery life, whereas Samsung is trying to undertake 5G throughout the field, and 5G is power-hungry. It’s additionally not the headline update getting added to the Galaxy S11 lineup with a groundbreaking camera, upgraded design, significant performance increases, next-gen memory, a supersized fingerprint sensor, and an AI-focused image processing all being added.
Samsung can be engaged in revolutionary new charging tech, although I don’t count on it to reach in time for the Galaxy S11 lineup. That mentioned, Samsung clearly means business in 2020.
