In terms of capacity, LG Chem is already the world's largest producer of lithium-ion batteries and it isn't the first time that they will supply Samsung with batteries for its phones. While this will be the first time a battery with LG on it is going to appear in a Galaxy S device, Samsung did use LG in the Note 10 lineup. Aside from Samsung reaching out to another company to supply a component in a major device, the other bit of news is the rumored battery capacity for the S11 lineup.

The Galaxy S10 lineup had batteries that ranged from 3,100 mAh in the S10e all the way up to the 4,500 mAh in the S10+ 5G. Rumors have the S11e starting at 3,730 mAh with the S11+ hitting 5,000 mAh — which would be the largest ever used in a Galaxy S device.

With 5G upcoming, potentially 120Hz displays, and whatever other tricks Samsung has up its sleeves, a big battery will be welcomed with open arms, I'm sure.
