How the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Disaster could affect the Galaxy S8's Battery | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

After a mishap like what happened with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, it's only natural that some caution would be taken going forward and that seems to be the case with Samsung and the S8 phone.

When Samsung announced what happened with the Note 7, they asserted that the issue really was with the battery  and the explosions came from complications with the battery. 

What that has done is that according to reports, the Samsung S8 will come with a smaller battery which means it won't last as long as people might have wanted.


This comes via Korean site The Investor and they claim that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will have smaller batteries than initially expected. 

According to the news source, the Galaxy S8 will pack a 3,000 mAh battery, while the phablet version will have a 3,500 mAh battery. This in comparison to last year's Galaxy S7 (3,000 mAh) and Galaxy S7 edge (3,600 mAh) shows just how much Samsung is playing it safe (the note 7's capacity was 3,500mAh).

According to News 1, a Samsung official was credited as saying, “After completing a range of tests, Samsung made a final decision to deploy the battery capacity for the two S8 variants,”

The idea of a smaller battery makes sense as it would be better for Samsung to play it safe. They have already changed their battery supplier to Japanese company Murata.
