Users of Samsung were not at all happy with the battery capacities of this year’s Galaxy S22 series, released just a few weeks ago. While the Ultra variant came with the same battery capacity as the 2021 model, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus both featured smaller batteries than the 2021 ones. its next smartwatch. Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 battery capacity just leaked and the news is good.
Galaxy Watch 5 Battery
According to SamMobile, the battery of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 could be a 276 mAh cell. That would be 10% bigger than the Galaxy Watch 4’s 40mm battery, which reached 247 mAh. The 2022 battery in question may have the model number EB-BR900ABY.
In almost all cases, a larger battery improves the battery life of a device. Theoretically, the Galaxy Watch 5 with a bigger battery than the Galaxy Watch 4 should mean we’ll see battery life improve this year.
However, there’s a lot more at play with battery life than just battery capacity. Screen resolution, brightness level and increased refresh rate may negatively affect battery life, for example, which may negate the 10% capacity increase. As we still don’t know anything about the Galaxy Watch 5 screen, we can’t say for sure what might be happening on the device.
More factors that can consume more battery on Galaxy Watch 5
Likewise, the CPU is a component that usually consumes the battery. In terms of efficiency, we still don’t know anything about the processor inside the Galaxy Watch 5. So, at this point, we have to consider before we can be happy with this 10% increase.
What we do know is that Samsung shrunk the Galaxy S22 battery and became the worst aspect of the device. The fact that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 battery seems to increase is arguably better than the alternative.
It’s hoped that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Watch 5 soon, and this battery boost isn’t just to meet possible new expenses. The hope is that the company will increasingly improve the battery life of its devices.
