Insiders familiar with the matter claim that the next-gen Galaxy flagship will use a new type of mainboard that would allow for a bigger battery without increasing the device's dimensions.

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 might not be too close, and this seems to be a good thing. According to insiders familiar with the inner workings of the South Korean giant, this next-gen flagship will be able to pack a larger battery without an increased width thanks to a new mainboard manufacturing technology.

ET News recently published an article that says "it is confirmed that Samsung Electronics is planning to use SLP starting with Galaxy S9 that will be released in 2018." The same report claims that preparations have begun already and manufacturers are currently bringing in the equipment required by the new mainboard manufacturing technology.

A source from a PCB manufacturer even confessed that they are getting ready to mass-produce SLPs to supply them for Samsung's next smartphone. The Galaxy S9 would be Samsung's first device to use this next-generation board. In the meantime, it seems that Apple will beat Samsung and the iPhone that is expected to show up this fall would use a mainboard built using the SLP technology.
