Samsung Galaxy S8: batteries of 3250 and 3750 mAh for an excellent autonomy?
Samsung is improving year after year the autonomy of its high-end smartphones. The Galaxy S8 will not be an exception, it will contain higher capacity batteries.
Although this is the main users request, the autonomy remains the eternal smartphones blackhead. The finesse and the design of the machines prevail regularly on the battery capacity, delivering therefore an autonomy rarely exceeding the day of use. Samsung has often been careful to differentiate on this point with its range Galaxy A, and also its Galaxy S, the latest Galaxy S7 is one of the best in its category concerning autonomy. Its replacement, the Galaxy S8 should follow this path and offer a few extra hours away from an outlet.
According to the Korean newspaper Itcle, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge should indeed have a battery of 3250 mAh and 3750 mAh against 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh for the previous generation. The autonomy should remain confined to a day and a half of use, with software optimization the 2 days seem therefore reachable...
Beyond the battery capacity, the Galaxy S8 should have, exclusively, a Snapdragon 835 processor (or Exynos depending on the world region) which is engraved in FinFET 10 nm, enough to reduce the wastage and increase its efficiency. The question is whether optimizations were made of screen side which remains the energy consumption main source during conventional use.
