Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S6 to feature a 2,600 mAh battery

Samsung Galaxy S6

We’ve already heard quite a bit about the Samsung Galaxy S6, thanks to innumerable leaks. And now, a report seems to be shedding light on the smartphone’s battery capacity.

According to this rumor, the smartphone will carry a paltry 2,600 mAh battery on board. We’re hoping this rumor doesn’t materialize, as a battery of that size might not be large enough to sustain the load from a power hungry display.

It is likely that Samsung might have considered this option to keep the weight and thickness of the device at bay. The Galaxy Note 4 was the company’s first globally available device to feature a 2K resolution display and the battery life of the device was moderate even with a 3,220 mAh battery.

So if Samsung will go with a 2,600 mAh unit for the rumored 5.1 inch 2K resolution panel of the Galaxy S6, customers might have to be on the constant lookout for a charger and power outlet. Perhaps Samsung can work out some software tricks to keep battery consumption to a bare minimum if it wants to get away with using a battery of this size.

What do you think?
