With the installed battery, however, there is also an important innovation.
Samsung Galaxy S8: New battery hardly ages
Samsung has, of course, yesterday’s presentation of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus assured that the installed batteries in the new high-end smartphones are absolutely safe and no longer pose any danger.
But there is another important development that Samsung has introduced with the new energy storage. The batteries in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus age hardly anymore and thus lose after years of use hardly any capacity.
While the Samsung Galaxy S7 in normal use after some time only reaches a remaining capacity of 80 percent, the Samsung Galaxy S8 reaches the same period to 95 percent.
Even if one would buy the smartphone after a year or two, the battery life would not differ very much compared to the new condition.
Lithium batteries become weaker with the years
It is quite normal that lithium batteries lose their capacity with the time and the repeated loading and unloading and thus age.
However, many companies are making tremendous progress in this area and are reducing their capacity over the years of use, including Samsung.
Since the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are now recharged by cable as well as wirelessly via the charging station by means of a quick charging function, the fast charging process probably no longer plays an important role in the aging of the battery.
As the battery can not be replaced in the two new smartphones, the longevity of the energy cell is a welcome innovation. How exactly Samsung has achieved this improvement but was not betrayed.
