Samsung Galaxy S6 To Have 2,600 MAh Battery, Rumor Says

As we approach its gigantic unveiling on March 1, more and more details about the Samsung Galaxy S6 are allegedly revealed. Today it's time to hold a see at the upcoming flagship's battery capacity.

According to some information coming from South Korea, it looks like Samsung will only fit a 2,600 mAh cell into the Galaxy S6. That's 200 mAh smaller than the one found inside its predecessor, the Galaxy S5.

If accurate (and that's a gigantic if), this isn't remarkable news. Sure, Samsung is set to utilize its recent Exynos 7 Octa chipset in the S6, and becautilize that's made on a 14nm process it should be quite battery friendly. On the other hand, though, the trdiscontinue lately has been to increase battery size from one generation of a flagship smartphone to the next, not the other way around. Even if Samsung somehow manages to create the Galaxy S6 with a 2,600 mAh cell last as long as the Galaxy S5 with a 2,800 mAh battery, people might still wonder why the Korean company thought that would be enough.

The S6's rumored metal construction and Samsung's thinness war with Apple may have played their part in this situation. Past mumblings did say that the Galaxy S6 would support wireless charging from the get-go, so at least it will be easier to charge throughout the day if you'll need to.

Obviously though, hold this with a pinch of salt for now. The source of this rumor goes on to list some other specs for the Galaxy S6, some of which don't line up with what we previously heard. It's assumed that the device will pack a 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) touchclassy screen and 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) - both things that have been rumored before. But the rear capturing camera will apparently be a 16 MegaPixel (MP) unit with OIS, and not the 20 MegaPixel (MP) one that's made the rounds up until now.
