Samsung supplier tipped prepping 3250/3750 mAh battery packs, may go into Galaxy S8/S8 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus battery capacities are claimed to be 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh, respectively, by the reputable rumormonger Evan Blass. This jibes with the notion that the phones will be barely larger than the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, despite the wrappable 5.8" and 6.2" displays, on account of the thinned out top and bottom bezels, hence similar battery capacities. A new report out of Korea, however, tips that a Samsung battery supplier roadmap includes batteries with similar dimensions, but carrying 3250 mAh and 3750 mAh capacities. 

The source claims that these two units might be going in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but adds that the battery specifications like final capacity can be corrected any time if Samsung needs to do so. Given the Note 7 drama, Samsung will probably be rather conservative with the battery density of the S8 and S8 Plus, so we find it a bit hard to imagine it will go for a higher capacity pack in the same footprint. 

Moreover, the S8 will sport a frugal 10nm chipset, and a new, hopefully more power-sipping screen, so an increase in battery life can be achieved by less electron-hungry components, instead of simply bumping the battery juice.

I am pretty sure the rumors about back fp scanner are fake and photoshopped. The real thing was the one leaked prior in the cases which shows Flash and heart rste scanner above the camera. The FP scanner is either on side button or on front display. And about battery S7 has 3000mah so its an improvement considering a similar form factor and larger screen

How can it be on side button? The side is literally 3mm... And the technology for fp within the display is not yet ready for mass production! So there is simply no other place it could be, but the back!

It can be on the front under the display, 5mm is enough, it can be under the glass, no need for home button.

"so we find it a bit hard to imagine it will go for a higher capacity pack in the same footprint" why so cynical about this good news, there are tons of 5.5inch phone using 4000mAh battery :-/ even 5inch phone using 4000mAh battery (i,e redmi 4) samsung isn't that stingy for battery size..

They used a 4000mAh battery just fine in the S7 Active for AT&T

My insider in samsung told that evleaks photo was a prototype .... Samsung is testing 4 prototypes ... The s8 and s8 plus will come in 4 colors ( new red color ) .... He told the phone will be mindblowing ...

Probably the evleaks one was the chosen prototype?

If those massive screen sizes are accurate then those battery sizes are tiny.

Just make sure to stress on quality control so the note 7 fiasco won't happen again.

I would suggest the author of this article to observe the proper use of the words "frugal" and "rumormonger" as they have been improperly applied in their respective sentences

With Samsung's 10nm FINFIT PROCESSES inside the Snapdragon 835 3500mAh battery will be enough for the S8Plus.
