Samsung’s questionable “all-day” battery claims, like those made for the Galaxy Note10+ LTE, could actually be an understatement for future models. As spotted by Sammobile, the Korean company appears to be readying a Galaxy M variant (M41) that flaunts a whopping 7,000 mAh battery! (Technically, its rated capacity is 6,800 mAh, but 7,000 mAh is probably what the marketing department will go with.)
Needless to say, that’s an impressive amount of power. The M41 actually beats out last year’s Galaxy M30, which boasts a 6,000 mAh battery for 25 hours of video playback, 31 hours of talk time, and 105 hours of music. It’s also much better than the flagship Galaxy Note 10+’s solid but comparatively measly 4300 mAh battery.
What’s really interesting is that 7,000 mAh batteries are typically reserved for tablet devices. “Remember, 10-inch Galaxy tablets like the Tab S6 Lite and last year’s Tab S5e have a 7,040 mAh battery, and Samsung is now putting a similar-sized cell in a phone,” pointed out Sammobile.
