The Korea Institute of Chemical Convergence Testing (KTR) published a post on its official website on November 6, revealing a code number for the battery that is about to enter the testing stage. According to the number and the details available on the internal code of the upcoming smartphone lineup, many people started to believe that the Samsung Galaxy S11e, the smallest model, will sport a 4,000 mAh battery.

The previous model in the series, Galaxy S10e, had a battery capacity of only 3,100 mAh, which means the next model’s battery would increase by 20%. We assume there should be a reason for this upgrade, and we think there are two possibilities. The first would be that the new Galaxy S lineup will be 5G phones. The second possibility is that the screen refresh rates will be in the range of 120 Hz.
