With the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 line and the Galaxy S20 FE model, Samsung’s next big announcement should be the 2021 update of the Galaxy S family. The expected top-of-the-line model, unofficially known as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, had its battery certified by a Chinese body and the listed specification should not excite fans of the brand.
According to the registration with the 3C, the S21 Ultra – with product code SM-G998 – will have a battery with an official capacity of 4,855 mAh, a value that is listed as a “typical capacity” of a tank with a total of 5,000 mAh.
The same component – identification EB-BG998ABY – had already been spotted at the German inspection body TÜV Rheinland with the same specifications last week. Capacity is the same as that offered by the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The S21 Ultra, however, is expected with a new processor, manufactured with a more modern technology and with less battery consumption, which can reduce the energy autonomy of the device.
Interestingly, the Chinese agency has listed two manufacturers for the componentÇ the first is Samsung SDI, a subsidiary of the South Korean company based in the Chinese city of Tianjin that usually supplies the part for the brand’s mobile phones; the second is also the Chinese Ningde Amperex Technology, the same listed as the battery manufacturer in the S21 and S21 + models.
The confirmation of the capacity of the component should happen only in the first quarter of 2021, when Samsung should announce the new generation of its high-end mobile phones.
