Huge battery touted for the Galaxy S11 as launch date leaks
The rumor mill for the Samsung Galaxy S11 grinds on. The phones, going by previous releases in the series, are expected to be launched sometime in February. That expectation appears to not be without substance, if new leaks are anything to go by.
According to Ice Universe, perhaps the biggest source of information on Samsung Mobile-related matters, the Galaxy S11 phones will likely be launched on February 18 at an event in San Francisco. Interestingly, they'll be launched alongside a new-generation of clamshell foldable phones.
Also, the Galaxy S11 will feature a 4500 mAh battery. That means it'll have a bigger battery than the Galaxy Note 10+ and its 4200 mAh unit. The Galaxy S11+, tipped to be the company's "nuclear weapon" will have an even bigger battery, as it'll sport a massive 5000 mAh unit.
These increases in battery sizes are about par, of course. The phones will see marked increases in size. For example, the S10 clocked in at 6.1" but most leaks claim the S11 will be a lot bigger in the 6.7" range. There's also the fact that they'll all feature power-hungry 120 Hz displays and 5G.
As I guessed a month ago, Galaxy S11+ really uses 5000mAh battery, you can safely use 120Hz. pic.twitter.com/bXphCId9yF— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) December 6, 2019
