Samsung Galaxy S23 series to arrive with big battery upgrades thanks to EV battery tech adoption
Apple's current crop of smartphones continue to boast of the best battery life in the market. It appears Samsung plans to shake things up with its next-gen mainstream flagships, the Galaxy S23 series. According to new reports, the Galaxy S23 series, codenamed "Diamond", will arrive with considerably bigger batteries than the Galaxy S22 series.
The vanilla Galaxy S22, in particular, has received criticism for downsizing from the 4000 mAh unit on the Galaxy S21 to a 3700 mAh battery. Supposedly, Samsung will remedy that with the Galaxy S23, with that phone tipped to come equipped with a 4500 mAh battery. Reputedly, the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra will see similar upgrades, jumping up to 5000 mAh and north of 5500 mAh respectively.
All of this looks to be thanks to new battery technology Samsung plans to implement on the Galaxy S23 series. Going by Korean media outlet The Elec, Samsung Digital Interface (SDI) will apply the stacking method it uses for its EV battery production, on future smartphone batteries. This technology will allow for 10% higher energy density on smartphone batteries. Supposedly, production is already underway with the company having a line at its factory in Tianjin, China. Despite that, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 isn't expected to benefit from this leap.
