When using a smartphone, one of the things people want most is a bigger battery. And last longer than the model that came before it. Autonomy is not one of the best things about Samsung phones, but it seems to be something the brand wants to change very slowly to get better sales numbers.
Samsung’s strengths in this area are not the size of the battery or how fast it charges. Instead, the company has put more effort into the design, power, and, most of all, the cameras of its devices. Its top models are among the ones whose photos are the best each year. The bad thing is that they don’t reach the same levels of excellence at the same level of autonomy.
Making what is there better
Recently, information about the Samsung Galaxy S23’s battery life got out. The Electric, a newspaper in South Korea, says that the smaller, brand-new phone could have a 5% bigger battery than the Galaxy S22, which has a 3700 mAh battery. This would leave us with a cell of about 3900 mAh, which would be about 200 mAh more than we started with.
The bad thing is that this leak is so short that we don’t know more about the other models made by this company. It seems likely that both the S23Plus and the S23Ultra will see their cells get better in the same way, but we can’t confirm or deny this yet.
Even though it might seem like the opposite, it’s not easy to make a cell phone’s battery last longer. This is because there isn’t a lot of room, especially in high-end phones, which tend to be slimmer and lighter, and there’s only so much you can do to make this part bigger. As the capacity of a smartphone goes up, it gets heavier and thicker, and not all brands are willing to deal with that.
More things that the Galaxy S23 can do
With permission from Xiaomi, the Samsung Galaxy S phones are almost always the first phones in the world to have the latest Qualcomm processor. We don’t think that this will change in 2023, so some of the brand’s smartphones could have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, while the ones in Europe would have the Exynos 2300 chip. But Samsung could stop making Galaxy S phones with Exynos chips next year, so it’s not for sure.
The smallest phone would have a screen close to 6 inches and at least 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a wired charging speed of at least 45 W, and a 3-sensor rear camera with Ultra-wide angle and Telephoto lenses.
