The latest claims seem to be indicating that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will feature a 2,600mAh battery, which is a little less powerful than we anticipated. This either means that the battery life will be pretty unsatisfactory, or it means the phone is highly optimized and it doesn’t need more than 2,600mAh.
In a couple of weeks, we’ll be the witnesses of Samsung’s Unpacked event on March 1st, where the tech company is set to unveil its next installment in its flagship line. Although previous rumors hinted at either a 2,800mAh battery or a 3,000mAh battery, that’s apparently no longer true, at least according to current sources. We also have to take into consideration that the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed which offers its own ultra power saving mode. Users have reported that this feature does wonders to some devices, and it may have some great effects on this 2,600mAh battery. The battery still seems a little small compared to other modern devices, especially when we look at the previous flagship which has a 2,800mAh battery. Despite this, the S5 had a great battery life, so we trust the tech company won’t let us down.
Let One interesting piece of information that we also have about the Galaxy S6 is that the next flagship will not be featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset, but instead come packing an Exynos processor. This came after a whole scandal regarding the last piece of Qualcomm hardware overheating. We’ll see how those rumors hold up after the first Snapdragon 810 device is released, namely the LG G Flex 2. The thickness of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is also reported to be 6.9mm according to the latest report, which is the same as the iPhone 6. This measurement also plays an important role in battery capacity, but we’ll see how true these rumors are at Samsung’s event next month.
