The leak season for the Galaxy S22 has long since started and is currently reaching its first high point. It was recently announced that a popular feature is returning with super-fast loading. But there is also bad news because apparently, the Galaxy S22 battery will be small.
This week there were and are several messages for those who are interested in the Galaxy S22, more precisely there were and are leaks to power the Samsung flagship expected for early 2022. As mentioned, it was initially leaked that the S22 will support charging with 45W and that you may need that more often.
Because according to a report from GalaxyClub (via SamMobile) the Galaxy S22 or its variants will apparently have batteries with a significantly smaller capacity than the previous models. Accordingly, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus will have a 4500 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S21 + had 4800 mAh.
An unexpected drop in capacity
Many experts have expected that the battery capacities will not change. But this is apparently not the case, because the other S22 models are likely to experience a similar reduction as the Plus version. The Galaxy S22 battery is said to have a capacity of 3590 mAh, while the S21 had 3880 mAh (in marketing that would be 3700 mAh compared to 4000 mAh for the S21).
That would be a significant downgrade and the question is whether Samsung can compensate for this by improving other areas of the device. Because the new Galaxy flagships will have an improved OLED display and the upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset, but it is questionable whether that is enough to “intercept” such a clearly deteriorated battery.
Of course, Samsung fans can still hope that the information from GalaxyClub is incorrect, but should still be prepared for the fact that they will be disappointed when the device is presented.
