Samsung Galaxy S10 battery capacity revealed; Galaxy S10+ and S10 Lite listed too

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.

I was expecting 3200 or 3300mah for the s10 lite and 3800mah for the s10 but since it's not yet official... Ok.

3,800mAh for the regular Galaxy S10 is quite unrealistic IMO. Even the Huawei P20 (which is slightly bigger than the S9) only features a 3,400mAh battery.

Agreed. People want above average everything, but they're not okay with paying above average prices. Besides, we all know that optimization is key here. These batteries can go a long way if done properly.

Too bad, Samsung hasn't learnt anything from their mistakes of the last two years. They are doing most of the things right with the S line (the camera, build quality, display and performance) except the battery. It seems like they're going to do the same mistake again in 2019. They've understood what to do with the Note line, but that one is way too expensive (1000€ is way too much to ask for a smartphone). Next year, Huawei Oppo Xiaomi and Nokia are going to take even more market share from Samsung and Apple.

What are you talking about? The S10+ is going to be the same size as the Note 9 & it will have the same sized battery. Did you expect the smaller versions to come with a 4000mAh battery as well? You people need to calm your expectations. They're just unrealistic.

But will they stick with the slower charging QC 2.0 or move to a fast charging platform.

They'll stick to their own adaptive charging, as usual.
