The photo accompanying the report shows a 5,000mAh total capacity unit. However, the rated capacity is around 4,855mAh with an 18.74Wh rating. The image also showcases a square design for the battery, likely hinting at a redesigned internal layout for the Galaxy S11+. Samsung will reportedly also add support for 45W fast charging.
The brand is expected to launch the Galaxy S11-series smartphones on February 18 in San Francisco next year. Samsung will most likely introduce three Galaxy S11 models – Galaxy S11e, Galaxy S11, and Galaxy S11+. At the same event, the company could also unveil the much-rumored Galaxy Fold 2 smartphone.
Unlike previous years, this time the Samsung Galaxy S11-series smartphones are expected to drop the in-house Exynos 990 SoC in favor of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. However, Europe could be the only region in the world where the Galaxy S11-series will feature an Exynos chipset. If rumors are true, the Galaxy S11 models might also come with a taller 20:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz display.
