We’ve seen leaks of the design, technical specs and even the cameras of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
The flagship is expected to be launched on March 29, but it will be available for purchase starting mid-April. While lots of details have been leaked about how Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will look like, their screen sizes and resolutions, their internal specs and even their expected prices, details of the battery capacity had supposedly been saved for last.
According to the latest reports, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will not just have larger screens when compared to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, they will also ship with much bigger battery capacities when compared to the two 2016 flagships. As it is, the report, which was picked up by Samsung-centric website Sam Mobile, says that the Galaxy S8 will ship with a 3250mAh battery unit, 250mAh more than the 3000mAh unit that was packed in the S7. On the other hand, the S8 Plus will come in with a monstrous 3750mAh battery, which is 150mAh more than the 3600mAh unit the S7 Edge has.
Be warned that this is just another of the many unconfirmed reports out there about these two Samsung Galaxy S8 phones. As a result, take it with a grain of salt as we wait for the official details from the company.
As noted earlier, many rumors are doing rounds with regard to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Apparently, one thing that could suggest these latest developments on larger battery capacities for the 2017 phones are somehow true is that notorious tipster Evan Blass recently leaked images of the standard S8, adding that the phone will ship with a huge 5.8-inch QHD screen while the Plus model will come in with 6.2 inches of display with the same resolution. With bigger screens, larger batteries are indeed inevitable for Samsung.
