Samsung has already reportedly started working on its next-generation S-series smartphones. It’s still months away from its launch, but information about the Galaxy S24 lineup has already started to leak. According to sources, Samsung plans to use electric vehicle (EV) battery technology to boost fast charging capabilities in its Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra. Currently, the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra support 45W fast charging. Whereas the standard S23 variant has only 25W charging support. In this respect the S-series has seen no change since 2019. However, the upcoming Galaxy S24 series is expected to support fast charging speeds of up to 65W, which is going to be a significant upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra may feature new battery technology
It is rumored that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus and Galaxy S24 Ultra will use a 5,000 mAh battery just like the predecessor models. According to a tipster, the company is planning to use stacked batteries in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus and Galaxy S24 Ultra. This battery technology, currently used in electric vehicles, will provide improved charging efficiency and overall performance compared to the winding technology found in the Galaxy S23. The tipster points out that this technology will also be seen in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 series.
However, the use of stacked batteries may be limited to the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus and Galaxy S24 Ultra models due to manufacturing issues. Again, the possibility of this technology being exclusively reserved for the Galaxy S24 Ultra cannot be ruled out. On the other hand, the standard Galaxy S24 is expected to support 25W fast charging as before. However, nothing has been officially announced by Samsung.
The tipster notes that the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s stacked battery will use cooling gel, which aims to reduce heat dissipation from the device. Samsung is currently testing this technology and it is not possible to say for sure which models it will eventually use.
Note that Samsung is currently preparing for their upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, which will be held on July 26 in Seoul, South Korea. The tech giant will take the wraps off its next-generation foldable devices – Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 at the event. Apart from the aforementioned smartphones, the launch event could also see the launch of Galaxy Tab S9, new Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch.
