Samsung Galaxy S10+ rumored to have a larger battery than first expected
As we get closer and closer to the February 20th date for the next Samsung Unpacked event, more and more information about the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ is leaking. Just earlier today, screenshots hinted that the Galaxy S10 will support blockchain storage and include a secure wallet for certain cryptocurrencies. Now, tipster Ice Universe says via a tweet, that he has new information on the battery capacity and thickness of the Galaxy S10+.

According to this new leak, we can expect a 4100mAh battery to power the Samsung Galaxy S10+. This is up slightly from the 4000mAh figure posted by Ice Universe in a previous leak. If the battery in the Galaxy S10+ turns out to carry a capacity of 4100mAh, it will be a 17% increase over the 3500mAh battery that keeps the Galaxy S9+ running.

Ice Universe also notes that according to his information, the Galaxy S10+ will measure 7.8mm thin. This matches the figure he mentioned in a prior tweet. If true, the reduction in girth would be 8.2% from the 8.5mm thickness for the Galaxy S9+.

The Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and the foldable Galaxy F are all expected to be introduced during the next Samsung Unpacked event on February 20th. We're sure to see more leaks ahead, so strap on your seat belt, sit back and enjoy the ride.

Thanks to Huawei and co! Without the pressure coming from the competition, Samsung would continue to use small batteries in their devices

Ask yourself how many take their phone off their charger before they go to work? How many plug in their phone with into the cars USB port while their drive to work? Most phones have plenty of single day battery life to spare. This notion of two day battery life is ridiculous. Everyone charges their phones every day so what’s the big point of fussing about a larger battery capacity. Lol!

You have a good point but bigger battery=more on screen time.

I have wireless charging throughout my typical daily routine. Work, car, home. Battery in an average day is never even remotely a concern but the odd time I'm out for the day doing an activity, I'll take the extra battery.

It’s still gonna score an average rating on PAs baffling battery testing methodology; which has a penchant for favoring LCD-based displays

We can be sure their test uses an app with a mostly white background or is just geekbench battery test
