No upgrade expected for key Galaxy S9 spec

We’re expecting Samsung’s Galaxy S9 to feature a bevy of upgrades when it launches this spring. Unfortunately, one of the device’s most important specs will remain unchanged from last year’s model.

According to a new leak, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will feature 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries, respectively, which are the same size batteries found in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Which shouldn’t be a surprise. With the Galaxy S9 expected to feature Qualcomm’s more efficient Snapdragon 845 processor, Samsung doesn’t need to boost the battery sizes of its newest devices.

That being said, folks who focus solely on specs might be disappointed by Samsung’s decision to keep the battery capacities the same. Similarly, the Galaxy S9 sounds strikingly similar to last year’s model, with some tweaks to the fingerprint sensor and iris scanner expected.

Meanwhile, Samsung’s larger Galaxy S9 Plus is said to feature a dual-camera setup and more RAM, making it the more enticing option over the smaller Galaxy S9.

Samsung is reportedly gearing up to introduce the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus at Mobile World Congress, so it won’t be long until we know more.
