The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is shaping up to be quite an impressive foldable smartphone. The device will likely get a faster processor, better displays, improved cameras, an under-display front-facing camera, and a thinner and lighter build. However, it might be powered by a smaller battery when compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
It was reported last week that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could feature a dual-battery system with a combined capacity of 4,380mAh, but that information was just based on TheElec’s own source. Today, the upcoming foldable phone’s dual-battery system passed through the 3C certification process in China. One of those batteries (EB-BF926ABY) has a rated capacity of 2,060mAh, while the other battery (EB-BF927ABY) has a rated capacity of 2,215mAh.
The combined battery capacity turns out to be 4,275mAh, and Samsung could market it as a 4,380mAh or a 4,400mAh battery. Although Samsung appears to be using a smaller capacity battery than the Galaxy Z Fold 2, its upcoming foldable phone could make up for it via more power-efficient internals such as its 5nm processor.
