Insiders have posted a photo on the network, which shows a battery of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the amount of two pieces. On the label you can see the model number EB-BN950ABA of the battery and its capacity is 3300 mAh.
Compared to last year’s seventh Note, it’s not so much: the latter had a battery capacity of 3500 mAh, and presented six months before it a more compact Galaxy S7 Edge – and at all 3600 mAh.
At the same time, it should be taken into account that the Galaxy Note 8 is slightly “stouter” compared to its predecessor: its thickness is 8.5 mm against 7.9. In principle, this scenario was predictable: Samsung after a failure with an explosive Galaxy Note 7 prefers to be reinsured.
In fact, 3300 mAh is not so much. Very “hot” and “gluttonous” OnePlus 5 has a battery of similar capacity, and released a couple of years ago, the fifth Note and did not content with a battery of 3000 mAh. For the end user, as for the company-creator, a stable and safe device is more important.
In addition, in recent years, the energy-saving technologies of modern processors have been greatly improved, fast charging has become more effective. So Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have at least the same indicators of autonomy as its predecessor.
It is clear that the battery of the new flagship will be fixed. And this means that the replacement of the Galaxy Note 8 battery is quite a non-trivial task, which it will be difficult to solve independently outside the service center.
Of course, with sufficient skill and the availability of tools, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 battery will be replaced. However, here comes a second question about the protection of IP68 from water and dust. And this is a more difficult task, at least because of the complexity of getting the necessary components.
