Samsung Galaxy S8 Battery Size Looks Like A Surprise

By  | 

When it comes to Samsung, the one burning question that’s gotten pretty redundant at this point is whether its new flagships would have battery issues – specifically, would their batteries overheat and blow up spontaneously?

Because of that, the company is probably working harder than ever to minimize that risk. Recent cases of the iPhone 6 and 7 catching ablaze without warning prove that even Apple can’t guarantee being risk-free in this regard.

We’ll only really find out if Samsung has managed to hush the Galaxy Note 7 whispers by using the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus safely for at least a couple of months, if not a full year. In the meantime, there’s some new and related info to chew on based on a leak fresh out of China.

It appears that the Galaxy S8 would be juiced by a 3,000mAh battery while the larger S8 Plus would be relying on a 3,500mAh pack. To the layperson, this may seem like a downgrade given that the Galaxy S7 also has a 3,000mAh pack while the S7 Edge boasts a full tank worth 3,600mAh.

But we know that battery life has more to do with efficiency than capacity, so there’s really no cause for worry here. The real question should be how many more minutes of screen-on-time the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus can wring out compared to their smaller predecessors.
