Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus 3,500 mAh battery allegedly leaked

Posted: , by Damian M.

Tags :

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are coming on March 29, and they're rumored to feature 3,000 and 3,500 mAh battery respectively. This seems more plausible, thanks to a new leak from China, featuring a Samsung 3,500 mAh power pack, allegedly made for a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.

What we noticed about the battery is that its model number matches that from the FCC certification of the Galaxy S8 Plus almost completely, so we're inclined to believe the power pack is what will actually be used in Samsung's flagship this year.

What the leak doesn't revel is the actual manufacturer of the cell. Samsung has been rumored to look into different battery suppliers than those for the Galaxy Note 7. And if rumors are true, this power pack could've come from a number of different companies.

However, until we see the Galaxy S8 Plus for ourselves, all these leaks and rumors will remain unconfirmed.

Hey Hallyu, your battery was designed in Japan!

Can you confirm your claim of it being designed in Japan?

I guess not.

This is actually not much of a concern. The real concern will be the anaemic capacity of the regular S8: 3000 mAh.

For 900$, get a phone that is the exact same as the one we sold last year, just with lower battery life.

The Snapdragoin 835 and Exynos 8895 are much more power efficient and so is the display aswell.

But the display is a lot bigger, not to mention higher resolution than the one on S7. Maybe, and this is a huge maybe, that the battery will be on par with the SD820 variant of the S7, but it certainly won't touch the battery life records the exynos S7 set.

Not to mention the fact that nougat drains more battery now than any other android version before it.

My battery life has improved on my snapdragon S7 with Nougat

Well, all the outlets report otherwise.

I haven't seen any reviews for the snapdragon version....just the exynos......but so far my experience has been positive

PA tested the snapdragon version:

Maybe the constant load time has reduced, but the standby time has increased having you noticing higher battery life.

And also everyone has their phone set up differently...... so results may vary

Seriously? 3000 mah for a 5.8 qHD AMOLED Panel? My S7s battery at 5.1inch and 3000mah is already pathetic.(4 Hours of heavy continuous usage at max)

I imagine the 35-40% improvement in power consumption the S835 and E9O are claiming will offset the loss from larger screen size.

Its low but note 7 had the same size battery. So not shocking.

Screen size is meaningless for power draw on an AMOLED. There is no backlight, just individually powered pixels. If the resolution is the same, and the average output of the pixels is the same, it doesn't matter if the screen is 3 inches of 10 inches, it'll use roughly the same power.

That's a bulls**t argument that I have debunked already. More surface area with the same amount of light will result in lower brightness, which you will compensate with higher brightness per pixel, which will in turn drain more battery at the same brightness.

tedkord, that's just not true dude lol.

Larger Screensize = more area = more light = more power usage

3000 mah for a 5.8 QHD screen?? No matter how efficient the new cpu is gonna be, 3000 mah will not enough at all! Expect average battery life (at best)

Screen size is irrelevant. It matters with LCD screens because they've got a constantly lit backlight, and the bigger it is, the more power it needs. No so with AMOLED, which has no backlight, just individually lit pixels.

I hope it matches my s7 edge. The battery in this thing is sick and easily outlasts my friends iPhone 7 plus at work. Both heavy users

Yep, the S7 edge rules the battery life competition in the flagship segment.

Except in iPhonearena where they showed regular iPhone 7 beat S7 Edge.

The manufacturer is not mentioned o the cell? Well actually it is written down on the cell. It says it is manufactured by Samsung SDI Vietnam right after a Korean word depicting Manufacturer.
