While Samsung’s newest smartphone announcement was just a few days ago, leak season for its next flagship has begun. If last year’s pattern holds, the Galaxy S23 series will be released in February, and a fresh battery certification suggests that’s on track.
Safety Korea has a new listing for the Galaxy S23EB-BS916ABY +’s battery. The Galaxy S22 battery +’s was certified in September 2021, ahead of its February 2022 launch, as SamMobile noted today.
This listing provides no other information.
The battery is made by China’s ATL, which has made batteries for other Samsung phones.
Samsung pushed the S21 and S22 release dates so they launch before Mobile World Congress in late February. The MWC exhibition is Feb 27-Mar 2, 2023, hence the Galaxy S23 series should launch Feb 24, 2023.
Samsung’s extended trade-in programme gives you up to $900 off your previous smartphone or $715 for a shattered screen. The Samsung Store is also offering a $150 discount on a 512GB storage upgrade.
If Samsung keeps its Galaxy S23 announcement timeline, the event and preorders would be on February 8, 2024. Samsung Galaxy S23+ battery certification date suggests at a February Galaxy S23 release date, as Android Headlines correctly deduces.
S23 Plus Battery
The S23+ battery was certified by Safety Korea in September, just as last year’s S22+ battery. This may indicate that Samsung will introduce its S-line phones in February 2023.
As for the Galaxy S23+ battery capacity, the Safety Korea database is mum, but SamMobile found the model number to be EB-BS916ABY, indicating it’s for the SM-S916 (the Galaxy S23 Ultra model number is SM-S918). The image is small, so we can’t read the S23+ battery capacity, but it appears to be 4,500 mAh.
The unit is made by China’s Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), one of the leading battery manufactures. Samsung recently begun diversifying its Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 pack suppliers to cut production costs and pass savings onto consumers.
