New Samsung Galaxy Fold rumor points towards much smaller battery
After years of mystery, 2019 will finally be the year in which Samsung takes the wraps off of its first foldable smartphone. But according to a new rumor, the first-gen device could arrive with a battery that is much smaller than initially expected.

Allegedly, the Galaxy Fold will launch with two 2,200mAh battery packs on the inside, bringing its total capacity to 4,400mAh. By modern standards, this is quite a respectable size for your everyday smartphone. But considering the larger 7.3-inch screen that will be accessible to users on this particular model, there’s a strong possibility that the dual-battery setup will fall short.

Previously, Samsung’s first smartphone was expected to arrive with a total capacity of 6,200mAh, provided by two separate 3,100mAh cells – the same batteries included inside the upcoming Galaxy S10E.

Aside from the smaller battery capacity, a separate rumor has hinted at the presence of 12GB of RAM inside the smartphone. In addition to this, the choice of 512GB and 1TB of internal storage is set to be available to consumers.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is expected to make its international debut on February 20th alongside the Galaxy S10 lineup. Sales, however, aren’t expected to commence until the second quarter of 2019. And even then, availability will be limited.
