With just a weeks left before the expected September 4 unveiling, we’re still getting last minute leaks and information regarding Samsung‘s next S Pen-powered phablet. An insider source has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will be Samsung’s most powerful smartphone, literally, as it will be running on a 3450 mAh battery.
If true, the Galaxy Note III will have the highest battery among its peers. The Motorola Moto X only has a 2200 mAh battery and even the recently unveiled LG G2 ships with 3000 mAh. It tops even those phones that are yet to be revealed, with the Sony Honami rumored to also have a 3000 mAh battery and the HTC One Max still falling below with 3300 mAh.
We’re not sure what would have caused the boost to the Galaxy Note III’s battery. Like other smartphones this year, it will be using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip running at 2.3 GHz, but with 3 GB of RAM instead of the usual 2 GB of other devices. It is expected to pack a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display and feature a 13 megapixel camera with Xenon flash. And of course, it will come with the Samsung’s notable S Pen stylus and S Pen-enabled apps.
Whether it’s because the Galaxy Note III requires more power or just because Samsung wanted to give users a higher battery, we don’t really mind a longer battery life. Hopefully, the company hasn’t changed its design direction and will still let the device’s battery be replaced.
