It’s Samsung’s week this week, but that’s not going to stop the leaks from pouring in ahead of the company’s event on Thursday. This latest battery info leak is courtesy of @evleaks, and might be a little disappointing to potential Note 5 buyers.
According to his tweet, the Galaxy Note 5 will feature a 3,000mAh non-removable battery – a serious downgrade from the Note 4’s removable 3,220mAh power source. Like the Note 5, the S6 Edge Plus will also feature a 3,000mAh battery according to the rumor. This is actually an upgrade from the regular S6 edge’s 2,600mAh battery.
Much like with its S6 models, Samsung will be losing its removable battery option in favor of a slicker, slimmer design for its Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus smartphones. The question remains to be seen if Samsung can convince these owners to upgrade to a device that loses that fan-favorite feature. If Samsung can also add its Quick Charging tech from the S6 models to their new phablets, odds are they could get away with it and keep their customers happy going forward.
Samsung’s Note 5/S6 Edge Plus event will be hosted this Thursday, August 13. We’ll be reporting live from the event so keep it locked here for more!
