The Galaxy S11 Plus, which will be launched in February next year, is expected to be equipped with an oversized battery with a capacity of 5,000mAh. South Korean certification agency Safety Korea has been approved as a new battery with the model “EB-BG988ABY” and can be seen in the accompanying public photo with a capacity of 5000mAh, which will be equipped with the Galaxy S11 Plus, according tomedia Galaxy Club.
This means that the upcoming Galaxy S11 Plus will be the most battery-powered of Samsung’s flagship phones. Currently, the title is won by the Galaxy S10 5G, which has a huge 4500mAh battery capacity. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus and Galaxy S10 Plus are 4300mAh and 4100mAh, respectively.
Although this has not been confirmed, the Galaxy S11 Plus is also expected to be equipped with the 45W fast charging technology that debuted on the Note 10 Plus while equipping the 5000mAh super-capacity battery. It is also expected to support fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging technology to charge the Galaxy Buds or wireless headphones.
If the Galaxy S10 plus equipped with 5000mAh capacity of the super battery will undoubtedly bring significant battery life, butmedia believe that the S11 plus can not be guaranteed, I believe Samsung will be equipped with more powerful features in this flagship, and these new features are often power-hungry.
The one that may have the biggest impact on battery life is the screen. Samsung is reportedly planning to dramatically increase its size by 0.5 inches, increasing it from a manageable 6.4 inches to a huge 6.9 inches. And, more importantly, an incredible 120Hz refresh rate on top of the Infinity-O punch screen will undoubtedly increase battery consumption.
Another reason is the addition of support for 5G networks. Samsung is expected to use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 in the U.S., which combines the chipset with the Snapdragon X55 modem, while its own Exynos 990 processor and 5G modem will be used in other countries and regions.
