Apple iPhone X battery size revealed, see how it compares to iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy

31

The Apple iPhone X comes with a battery slightly larger than the iPhone 8 Plus, according to an official filing with Chinese telecoms certification agency TENAA.

The filing reveals that the iPhone X battery will have a capacity of 2,716mAh, just a bit larger than that of the 8 Plus.

How does this compare to other iPhones? Let's put the numbers in context:

iPhone 8: 1821 mAh
iPhone 7: 1960 mAh
iPhone 6s: 1715 mAh
iPhone 6: 1810 mAh

iPhone X: 2716 mAh

iPhone 8 Plus: 2675 mAh
iPhone 7 Plus: 2900 mAh
iPhone 6s Plus: 2750 mAh
iPhone 6 Plus: 2915 mAh

Samsung Galaxy S8: 3,000mAh
Samsung Galaxy S8+: 3,500mAh
Samsung Galaxy Note 8: 3,300mAh

Keep in mind that the iPhone X comes with a 5.8" display, but it has an aspect ratio of 2.17 to 1, different than the 16:9 standard used before and it actually has a nearly 2.6% smaller area than the 5.5" iPhone 8 Plus. The surprising difference comes because of those different aspect ratios.

Apple has promised that its iPhone X will have a slightly better battery life than earlier iPhones. Here are the officially stated battery life figures by Apple:
