A Samsung signed battery has been certified by a Korean organization. From the clues left on, we can imagine that the Samsung Galaxy S11e would have a much bigger battery than its predecessor.
Earlier this year, Samsung introduced three variations of its Galaxy S10, with a variant "Plus" larger, and another "Essential" more affordable, the Galaxy S10e. In 2020, the Korean manufacturer is expected to adopt the same strategy with at least three high-end smartphones on the first half: the Galaxy S11, the Galaxy S11 + and the Galaxy S11e. It is the latter who makes talk about him today.
The Dutch site GalaxyClub has noticed that a new battery has been certified by Samsung in South Korea. Designed in Vietnam, this one carries the reference EB-BG980ABY which, in spite of its complicated aspect, is heavy of sense since it already makes it possible to guess the product for which it will be intended. Indeed, the Samsung Galaxy S10 shipped an EB-BG973ABU battery and the S10e a battery EB-BG970ABU. So we can easily deduce that the battery discovered here will equip the Samsung SM-G980, reference attributed to the future Galaxy S11e.
The quality of the image does not determine with certainty the capacity of this battery, but GalaxyClub understands that the rated capacity is 14.36 Wh, which would lead to a nominal capacity of 3730 mAh, and a typical capacity of 4000 mAh battery. This last figure seems the simplest to decipher (bottom left) and it is clear that the capacity (typical) is a round number (3000 or 4000 mAh).
The main defect corrected
For the record, the Samsung Galaxy S10e has a battery with a typical capacity of 3100 mAh. Despite the many benefits of the smartphone, this tiny battery is certainly its biggest defect. Very good in many respects, the Galaxy S10e is struggling to keep the day full for many users.
If the Galaxy S11e battery is 4000 mAh, it would correct this problem and return to a more than adequate battery life. This is a point that is likely to be very important in 2020 with the arrival of 5G and the multiplication of screens with a higher refresh rate. Among the novelties expected on the Galaxy S11, we can indeed mention a new slab at 120 Hz.
The Galaxy S11 presentation is expected in February 2020.
