Unnamed Samsung’s official reported that the upcoming flagship phones will come with battery capacity of 3000mAh for the 5.8-inch model and 3500mAh for the 6.2-inch model. This means that the 6.2-inch model will have a smaller battery than Galaxy S7 edge (3600mAh) while the smaller model will have the same capacity of 3000mAh like Galaxy S7 had.
