On Wednesday, Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S8. This is a huge moment in flagship history as with the past Note 7 debacle, Samsung really, REALLY needs the Galaxy S8 to be a success if they plan on staying in the premium smartphone market. It's pretty incredible how things can change and one wrong move can put the King of the Castle in the precarious position of being on the edge of the moat. I personally hope it's awesome and we all get over last years battery issues.
There is, however, another aspect of the battery that will be a cause of intrigue with the S8. Per the latest leak over at WinFuture, the smaller S8 is set to have a 5.8-inch display paired with a 3,000mAh battery. That's 0.7 inches more screen than the 2016 Galaxy S7 model, but the same battery capacity. Samsung got itself in trouble by trying to force the biggest possible battery inside the Note 7, but will it fall behind in the endurance stakes with the more conservative combination it has in its latest phones?
