Samsung Galaxy S10 battery capacity revealed; Galaxy S10+ and S10 Lite listed too
With Huawei continuing to improve the battery life of its flagship models with each new generation, Samsung’s decision to retain the same battery capacities in the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S9 lineups has led to quite a bit of criticism over the years. However, with the Galaxy S10 series just around the corner, the South Korean giant appears determined to change this.

In a new leak courtesy of tipster Ice Universe, it has been revealed that the regular Galaxy S10 will make its debut next month with a 3,500mAh battery inside. This is a considerable 500mAh jump over the 3,000mAh cell found in the inside of the Galaxy S9 and also matches the battery capacity of the larger Galaxy S9+.

In addition to this model, the leak also points towards a 4,000mAh battery inside the larger Galaxy S10+. This coincides with the capacity first reported back in October and also represents a 500mAh gain over the outgoing model. In fact, it puts the smartphone on par with both the Galaxy Note 9 and the Huawei Mate 20.

Lastly, as revealed earlier today, the battery capacity of the cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite is listed as 3,100mAh. Although many may consider this as a little low, it’s worth noting that the smartphone is actually slightly smaller than the Galaxy S9, which features a 3,000mAh battery. In addition to this, the new device will feature a much more efficient processor and a lower resolution display, two factors that should help battery life.

The Galaxy S10 series is expected to make its debut at an Unpacked event on February 20. Those interested in any of the devices should be able to pre-order them immediately after the event before the start of shipments in early March.
