Note 10+ and Galaxy Watch Active 2's exact battery capacity increase tipped

Note 10+ and Galaxy Watch Active 2's exact battery capacity increase tipped
Among an industry-specific chatter in a Korean business publication about who will be the battery suppliers for the Note 10+ and Galaxy Watch Active 2, one can find the exact capacity of their units.

While we've already heard that the Galaxy Note 10+ will arrive with the largest ever battery on a Note series phone at 4300 mAh of actual capacity, the exact number is 4370 mAh, or about a 10% increase over the pack in the Note 9

With the new second generation 7nm process for the Exynos 9825 or Snapdragon 855+ chipsets that will power it, the increase in battery power should bring on a welcome boost of the phone's battery life as well. The sources note that the new battery packs will be made in-house by Samsung SDI itself.

As for the two revamped Galaxy Watch Active 2 models that will be announced together with the Note 10 series, they will carry a 240mAh and 330mAh batteries, respectively, made by ATL (Amperex). That's an increase over the 230mAh piece in the basic Watch Active, and is reportedly made to accommodate the new ECG function that Samsung's fresh smartwatches will bring.

330 mAh for the bigger size watch is not good news at all. The Galaxy Watch has a 470mAh battery and the same processor. Battery life will be around 30% worse. But that's what happens when the competitors have a measly 1-day battery life and Samsung Galaxy Watch has 3-5 days of battery life, there is no pressure whatsoever so they can afford reducing the battery size in order to make room for more hardware features.

Galaxy watches already last several times longer than android wear and apple watch. So shouldn't be too much of a worry at all

6% better in battery usage. Every year it’s the same thing. The processor is more efficient and it’s a bigger battery. So everyone thinks that well 10% better battery and I should get 10% better efficiency. It has never happened. Not 1 time
