Despite Samsung’s Flip line of foldable smartphones having rather small batteries, people have always complained about battery life – the Galaxy Z Flip5 launched last summer has just 3,700 mAh.
According to Samsung, it has listened to feedback and will increase the capacity of the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip6, expected to go official in the middle of this year. The next Flip will be 4,000 mAh, according to a report.
Oppo’s Find N3 Flip has a 4,300 mAh battery, so it’s still less than that, but it’s closer than ever before. Even though the Flip6 is only 8% more durable than the Flip5, Flip owners need every bit of extra longevity they can get.
All foldables have two cells, one for each side, and the Flip6 is no different. The battery rating of one is 1,097 mAh and the battery rating of the other is 2,790 mAh. The vanilla S24 has a rated capacity of 3,880 mAh, which is advertised as a typical capacity of 4,000 mAh, which translates into a total of 3,887 mAh rated capacity.
The Galaxy Z Flip6 will have a 3.9″ cover display, up 0.5″ from its predecessor. The Flip5’s 12-megapixel camera will be replaced by a 50-megapixel one.
