A new leak online has revealed the battery capacity of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. For better or for worse, it looks to be the same as the already released Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.
First spotted at Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) certification body database, twitter user Roland Quandt aka rquandt revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will have 3,000mAh while the bigger Galaxy S9+ will have a 3,500mAh battery. The numbers translates to 11.55Wh and 13.48Wh in its respective batteries.
The battery capacity may not a bad thing considering the Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810 are expected to be more power efficient; we may see longer battery life on the same capacity. On the other hand, Samsung may still be a little gun-shy about squeezing more battery power into such a thin device. Choosing to err on the side of caution this time around.
Also leaked was the new fingerprint scanner for the Galaxy S9. When compared to the previous generation, the scanner looks to be wider; which could translate to a better read on the fingerprint. Based on the build configuration, it may confirm the previous leaks where the fingerprint scanner is set to be located below the camera module.
Samsung is set to launch the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ on Feburary 25, which is during the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018.
