New Set of Galaxy Leaks Suggest Massive Battery Upgrade
Rumour mills have been churning incessantly ever since the beginning of December, and one of the top news that it has brought to us relates to the upcoming, and much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S11.
According to a South Korean certification website, the Galaxy S11 Plus could house a 5,000mAh battery. If this turns out to be true, this would be the largest battery Samsung has ever put in a flagship phone. The Galaxy S11 series battery was also pictured in the SafetyKorea certification database, featuring the model number EB-BG988ABY. Previous leaks have also suggested that the Galaxy S11 Plus will come bearing the model number SM-G988. Hence, there is a good reason to believe that this particular 5,000mAh battery belongs to the Galaxy S11 Plus.

Compared to the last outings of the company, this is a huge jump in terms of battery size. The Galaxy S10 Plus and Note 10 Plus feature 4,100mAh and 4,300mAh batteries, respectively. In fact, only three flagship-grade phones this year sported a 5,000mAh or higher battery, which include the Asus ZenFone 6 with a 5,000mAh battery, the ROG Phone 2 and Nubia Red Magic 3 with a whopping 6,000mAh batteries. It is important to note that the phones are primarily gaming devices, which puts the upcoming Galaxy S11 in a league of its own.
The S11 Plus would also be the more expensive of the 2020 flagship lineup. It is expected that the device will feature a 120Hz AMOLED display which would theoretically consume a lot of power. While the phone is expected to offer the ability to switch to a 60Hz refresh rate, a bigger battery will definitely boost screen-on time when set at 120Hz.
The Galaxy S11’s 5,000 mAhbattery could also support 45W fast charging, since the Note 10 Plus also does it. However, there have been no major leaks regarding the device’s charging speeds.
