Galaxy S25 to get same battery capacity as predecessor

Samsung is planning to launch the newest Galaxy foldables next month at the July Unpacked event. In the meantime, we have started receiving a few leaks and rumors about the upcoming Galaxy S25 series, which is not expected to launch before early 2025.

Most of these leaks, so far, have remained confined to the S25 Ultra, with upgrades expected to its ultrawide lens and the 3x zoom lens is also expected to be finally upgraded (which is a long-requested change), and the build is expected to mostly stick to the same Grade 2 Titanium as the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

However, today’s leak finally talks about the base Galaxy S25 and its rumored battery capacity. According to the reputed Dutch publication GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S25’s battery is disappointingly expected to remain the same as the Galaxy S24.

According to the report, the Galaxy S25 with the model number SM-S931 has a battery rated at 15.06 Wh with a voltage of 3.88 Volts, which gives a rated capacity of 3881 mAh. Hence, the typical capacity of this battery is 4000 mAh, which is the same as the Galaxy S24.

This represents as the base Galaxy S20 and S21, which also had 4000 mAh batteries. It seems that Samsung’s battery capacity race has finally plateaued to a good level. We can also expect the Galaxy S25 to carry the same 25W wired charging and 15W Qi wireless charging as the Galaxy S24.

Samsung’s battery tuning has ensured good battery life on the current Galaxy S24. Still, with a new chipset (Exynos 2500 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, depending on region), it remains to be seen whether this streak continues, especially with both the chipsets based on 3 nm fabrication.

The Galaxy S25 series is expected to launch in early 2025. We’ll be sure to report more information about the new flagship lineup as and when it comes.
