Samsung Galaxy S9 battery details leaked, ‘S9 Active’ likely underworks

It looks like leaks and rumours will leave nothing to our imagination by the time Samsung launches its Galaxy S9 smartphone(s). After several leaks about processor and screen details, and renders showing the handset’s design, a new report now talks about the handset’s battery capacity. A separate report also talks about the rumoured Galaxy S9 ‘Active’ variant.

Starting with the Galaxy S9, one of the smartphone repair components wholesaler named Union Repair seems to have jumped the gun and has revealed the battery sizes of the handset. The wholesaler, on its website, lists battery replacement for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus. According to the listing, the S9 is supposed to feature 3000mAh battery, while its big screen variant is said to sport 3500mAh battery.

To several Samsung fans this may not sound convincing enough as the battery capacity mentioned for the Galaxy S9 is exactly the same as that in the Galaxy S8. The S9 Plus’ battery capacity is 200mAh more than that of the S8 Plus. But it still remains less than Galaxy S7 Edge’s 3600mAh battery.
However, despite sporting a similar battery capacity, the performance might be better as the handset is said to sport much powerful and efficient processor. We can only know once we review the smartphone and if the aforementioned claim by the Union Repair website holds some weight.

The South Korean tech firm’s flagship smartphone is expected to see the light of the day on February 25. Some of the rumoured specifications of the handset include Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, dual rear cameras and nearly the same design sans the placement of the fingerprint sensor. Since the launch of the S9 and the S9+ is by end of this month, we are likely to see them hitting the shelves initially by March.

Samsung Galaxy S9 ‘Active’ rumours hit the web
Now that we are sure of the Galaxy S9 smartphones coming out within next four weeks, fresh reports have started pointing out attention towards their ‘Active’ variant. For those unaware, the particular version essentially is the same regular model but with a rugged look.

XDA Developers have obtained a list that shows the codenamed of the Galaxy S9 devices.

While the list mentions ‘star’ and ‘star2’ which are said to be the codenames of the two Galaxy S9 handsets, the third ‘astarqlte’ codename could be that of the ‘Active’ variant. The ‘a’ here may mean Active, while ‘q’ and ‘lte’ could mean it may sport a Qualcomm processor along with LTE connectivity.
