Now that all the big 2019 phones have been released, it’s time to look forward to next year’s handsets, and if these early leaks are any indication, the Galaxy S11 could be in line for a huge upgrade in the battery department.
According to noted Samsung leaker Ice Universe, Samsung’s next batch of flagship smartphones may get significantly larger batteries, with even the smallest of the bunch – the Galaxy S11e – featuring up to a 4,000mAh power pack.
Compared to the 3,100 mAh battery used in the current Galaxy S10e, that would be an improvement of nearly 30 per cent in overall battery capacity.
As for bigger versions of the Galaxy S11, Ice Universe says the S11+’s battery could be as large as 5,000 mAh, which would also be a pretty big jump up from the 4,100 mAh battery in the S10+.
But what’s more important than the increased size of the S11's batteries, is what Samsung could do with all the extra juice.
While other phones like the OnePlus 7 Pro, Pixel 4, and others upgraded to 90Hz displays in 2019, none of Samsung’s phones this year had displays with high refresh rates, despite Samsung being the manufacturer responsible for making the panels featured in many of its competitors.
