- The Samsung Galaxy S30 Ultra may not receive any degradation in battery capacity.
- The phone is believed to use a 5,000 mAh cell like the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The Samsung Galaxy S30 Ultra could be jacked up in the same way as its predecessor but may not make any progress on the battery capacity department, according to a new report.
According to data from Galaxy ClubThe next oversized phone in the Samsung Galaxy S range has the same battery capacity as the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The largest S30 variant, believed to have model number SM-G998, is said to have a nominal battery capacity of 4,855 mAh, which corresponds to a typical capacity of 5,000 mAh. In our S20 Ultra test, we found that its capacity is more than sufficient for everyday use at Full HD + resolution and 120 Hz. However, there is still room for improvement.
That is not to say that larger batteries guarantee longer battery life. Various factors can affect a device’s thirst. Still, it could be a disappointing revelation for those looking to upgrade to something bigger. After all, mid-range Samsung phones like the Galaxy M51 have much larger batteries.
Samsung could consider the dimensions of the S30 Ultra. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is not a compact phone with a 6.9-inch display and a weight of 220 grams. It’s arguably too big and awkward to fully enjoy, and a larger battery only adds to the Galaxy S30 Ultra’s waistline.
If performance isn’t a priority, the S30 Ultra could offer a number of new camera improvements over the S20 Ultra. The alleged addition of two telephoto lenses was supposed to improve the quality of the shots over the zoom range. Samsung also announced smaller pixel camera sensors, which should result in a reduced rear camera hump on the S30 Ultra. We could also see a new updated version of Samsung’s 108MP sensor.
