The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will keep the same battery capacities as their predecessors, with the smaller sibling to house a 3000mAh battery, and the plus-sized variant to opt for a 3500mAh one.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are about set to hit storefronts in a matter of months. Both devices made the trip over to Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency yesterday, with the certification agency revealing a few details from the spec sheets of the device.

Details of the upcoming Samsung flagships aren't exactly a rarity anymore, as there have been comprehensive leaks over the last few weeks, with the S9's retail box even surfacing online a while ago

According to the Brazilian agency, though, the S9 will feature a 3000 mAh battery, while the S9+ will opt for a larger 3500 mAh unit, to compensate for the equally larger display. That isn't shocking, we expect, as both the S8 and S8+ featured the same battery configurations. The S9 and S9+ will be powered by the newer Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, however, with both SoCs also bringing increased levels of power efficiency.

Meanwhile, according to a tweet by famous tipster Evan Blass (@Evleaks), the Samsung flagships may be set for a February 26 announcement, with pre-orders to begin on the first of March, and sales on the 16th. It's always been known that the devices would be announced at MWC--the company even confirmed it a while ago—but concrete dates are always nice.
