The Korean tech giant, Samsung will offer the upcoming Galaxy S23 series with larger batteries, presumably in an attempt to rival Apple’s industry-leading battery longevity. These improvements will be made possible by an electric vehicle (EV) inspired battery technology that allows a 10 per cent increase in energy density.

Apple’s existing smartphones continue to have the best battery life in the industry. Samsung’s next-generation mainstream flagships, the Galaxy S23 series, appear to be set to change things up. The Galaxy S23 series, codenamed ‘Diamond’ is expected to have significantly larger batteries than the Galaxy S22 series, according to new rumours.

The Galaxy S22, in contrast, has been chastised for reducing from the Galaxy S21’s 4,000 mAh battery to a 3,700 mAh unit. Samsung is expected to address this with the Galaxy S23, which is expected to feature a 4,500 mAh battery. The Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra are expected to receive similar updates, with battery capacities increasing to 5,000 mAh and north of 5,500 mAh, respectively.


All of this appears to be due to Samsung’s ambitions to incorporate new battery technology into the Galaxy S23 series. Samsung Digital Interface (SDI) will leverage the stacking technology it uses for its EV battery production on future smartphone batteries.

This technology will allow smartphone batteries to have a 10 per cent higher energy density. Production is allegedly already underway, with a line at the company’s plant in Tianjin, China. Still, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is unlikely to gain from this advancement.
