Last week we stumbled upon a battery certification for the upcoming Galaxy S11+ and now we got some news on the smaller S11 which also got its battery certified by SafetyKorea. It appears Samsung is sticking to its new larger cell approach and will outfit the S11 with a 4,500 mAh battery.
The S11’s battery cell comes with the EB-BG985ABY model number which falls in line with the device’s own SM-G985 model number. We also get an image of the actual battery and although it’s not the best quality, we can see the minimal capacity comes in at 4,370 mAh while the typical value is listed at 4,500mAh. These values fall in line with the Galaxy Note10+ and are a notable improvement over the S10 and its 3,400 mAh battery.
As with the S11+, the S11 will need all the power it can get as it’s rumored to come with a taxing 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. In addition, we should be getting the Snapdragon 865/Exynos 9830 chipset depending on the region, paired with 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB UFS 3.0 storage. Another rumored new addition is a new 108MP main camera sensor.
