Samsung Galaxy S9 to have much improved battery, new leak suggests


One of the criticisms that many of us have about our smartphones is the battery life.

A new leak suggests that Samsung could be addressing this on their new Galaxy S9 which is said to have a battery life significantly better than its predecessor.

The Galaxy S8 has a 3,000mAh battery but it is thought that the S9 will have a 3,200mAh battery if the details posted online by someone who claims to be in the know are correct.

SamMobile has reported that the S9 is marginally thicker than the S8 and this could suggest that the Korean manufacturer has made extra room for a larger battery.

Although it is merely speculation, it seemed a common acceptance that Samsung has played things safe with the S8’s battery after the fiasco with the Galaxy Note 7 which had a reputation for bursting into flames.

The report is slightly unclear when it comes to the battery for the S9+ and if this will be upgraded or not.

The chances are that Samsung will upgrade the battery in an attempt to make existing users purchase the new device as previous reports have suggested that the new phone will be very similar to the existing model.

If the leaks are to be believed, it seems that the biggest change will be with the repositioned fingerprint scanner after the one on the S8 proved somewhat difficult to use.

As always, until the device is actually unveiled, which was expected to be January but now seems more likely to February, all of the leaks are pure speculation and how true they are cannot be verified.
