New certifications have provided some concrete details about two of Samsung's future flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S22+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. For some reason, the company has decided against increasing the battery capacity of the Galaxy S22 series relative to the Galaxy S21 series. Worse still, battery capacity has even gone the other way with one device.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra shone in our review, not least because of its excellent battery life. The Galaxy S21 Ultra retained the 5,000 mAh battery capacity from its predecessor, but its more efficient Exynos 2100 SoC helped it squeeze out more time between charges.

According to a recent 3C certification, Samsung is sticking with 5,000 mAh for the Galaxy S22 Ultra too. Specifically, Samsung has certified the EB-BS908ABY, a battery that has a 4,855 mAh rated capacity, and a 5,000 mAh typical capacity. Few people could complain about having a 5,000 mAh battery, in our opinion, even if flagship Samsung smartphones continue to be less efficient than many of their competitors.

On the other hand, it seems that Samsung has reduced the capacity of its next Plus smartphone. As the screenshot below shows, the EB-BS906ABY has a 4,370 mAh actual capacity, which should correspond to a typical capacity of 4,500 mAh. By contrast, the Galaxy S21+ has a 4,800 mAh battery, a 300 mAh increase on the 4,500 mAh battery in the Galaxy S20+.

Similarly, the Galaxy S22 is expected to receive a 3,800 mAh battery, down from the 4,000 mAh one in the Galaxy S21. Ultimately, the Galaxy S22 series could offer better battery life than current Galaxy S21 models with more efficient hardware, although that is not always the case with flagship Samsung hardware. Samsung is slated to start mass-producing the Galaxy S22 series in November ahead of a January 2022 release.
