Samsung may supply the Galaxy X, an often-rumoured upcoming foldable smartphone, with at least a 3,000mAh battery. The phone’s X moniker is currently the ongoing rumoured name for the handset.
A new report from South Korean publication ItHome indicates that Samsung will start producing flexible batteries later this year. The new batteries are capable of hosting a power capacity ranging from 3,000mAh to 6,000mAh, according to the report.
The South Korean tech giant has been working on these flexible batteries since 2014, when the company first introduced the technology at an InterBattery event, according to SamMobile.
It’s unlikely that Samsung will put a 6,000mAh battery in a smartphone, with the device being more likely to feature a battery in the 3,000mAh range.
Samsung will probably launch the Galaxy X sometime next year exclusively in the Asian market.
