The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ just been unveiled to the public and people can't get enough of knowing the phone's offer to the public. With everyone knowing that Samsung already learned its lesson from the mishaps of Note 7, people are wondering if Samsung's flagship this year is an improvement from S7 and S7 Edge in terms of battery life.

In an article by Phone Arena, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will have a battery capacity of 3000 mAh and 3500 mAh, respectively. It's a confirmation for the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch siblings after several rumors about their battery capacity.

Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+'s predecessors S7 and S7 edge have a battery capacity of 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh, respectively. The S8 and S7 have the same capacity but the S7 Edge has more capacity than the S8+.

In an article posted by the BGR, Samsung is in discussion with Japanese electronic components manufacturer Murata in becoming the third battery supplier for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. Leaked photos show that the battery packs of these smartphones were marked with "Samsung Japan".

More likely, Samsung is becoming extra careful with its battery since they want to redeem themselves from the Note 7 mishaps and recall. This could be attributed on why the Samsung Galaxy S8+ has lower battery capacity compared to S7.

The 2960 x 1440 pixels AMOLED display, 10nm Exynos or the Snapdragon chipsets are said to improve the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ compared to S7 and S7 Edge in music playback and Internet usage 3G. In other terms like Internet Use LTE, Internet use WiFi, video playback, and talk time, S7 and S7 Edge has still more edge.
