For a variety of reasons, the Samsung Galaxy S22 has a smaller battery than its predecessor, which is now available at just 3,700mAh, but it appears the company may be backtracking on a reduction for the Samsung Galaxy S23.
According to Digital Chat Station, a leaker with a strong track record in a post on Weibo (opens in new tab) and Pocket Lint (opens in new tab) the Samsung Galaxy S23 will have a 3,900mAh battery. This is not a huge increase, but it is a desirable one.
Even that will not leave the phone with a particularly large battery. The Samsung Galaxy S21 has a 4,000mAh battery, which is around the standard we expect from a small-screen model, but this at least would be a step back in the right direction.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 will have a 6.1-inch 1080p screen as predicted, as its predecessor, and its fast charging will be somewhat worse than its domestic small-screen counterparts.
They don''t specify what the charging speed is, but weve heard elsewhere that the Galaxy S23 will have just 25W charging, like its predecessor. This isn''t the first time, therefore, Samsung''s phones tend to charge slower than most competitors.
None of this has been confirmed yet, but it is all in line with what wed expect, based on the company''s past form, and suggests that once again the standard Galaxy S model will not excel for either battery life or charging, although for the former it might be at least slightly better than the S22.
Two out of three people are charged with battery upgrades, according to an analysis.
Earlier leaks had indicated the possibility of battery capacities of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and although one of these is reportedly getting a boost, the other isnt.
A leak suggests that the Galaxy S23 Plus will have a 4,700mAh battery, which is 200 times higher than the Galaxy S22 Plus, but this would be the same capacity enhancement as the Samsung Galaxy S23, although similar claims that that would still be extended to a 100 percent lower capacity.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra, on the other hand, will seem to have a 5,000mAh battery, just like the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. So, Samsung has at least maintained its support here.
Because 5,000mAh is a fairly standard battery size for a large-screen flagship, we would like to see the company engage in larger batteries in the standard and Plus models.
These leaks indicate that there is at least a step in the correct direction, giving them a good shot at ranking among the finest Samsung phones.
