    The battery technology is what it is today. Don't expect any major break throughs in time for Note 8.
    Through out different posts, there seem to be a lot of hope for a big battery capacity. But looking at facts and what we know, that's more of a dream that will remain a dream in 2017.

    Remember, Note 5 has 3000 mAh battery. They forced 3500 mAh in Note 7 and we all know what happened to that. Lets just say, it simply became too hot to handle

    It is unfair to expect anything outrageous with Note 8. Even with bigger profile than S8 Plus, capacity might very well come short and under 3500 mAh. Don't forget, that S Pen that makes Note a Note has to fit somewhere. You can't have it all you know. You need large battery capacity, get S8 Plus, you need an S Pen with features only available on Note series then get a Note. You can't​ have it all, at least not until we see major battery technology break throughs.

    So, folks waiting for Note 8 (me included), have the right expectations and you won't be disappointed.

    Now, can we open the flood gates on leaks already? lol

    The problem with the Note 7 wasn't the battery capacity (if it was, I hope I'm not home when my 12 Ah lithium battery blows my house up), it was partly the way they designed it (hot things need a lot of air flowing around them to cool them off) and partly the design of the battery itself (it's difficult to properly cool a battery that's too thick or wide).

    I agree with you, it's probably not going to be huge.

    I'm using the S8 plus and for me the battery is amazing. I constantly get all day with 20% or more left, that's 15+ hours with 6 hours on screen time. My previous notes and S7 edge never came close to the battery performance I get with the S8 plus.

    I know you are right and that this is the year Samsung will be conservative and put something like a 3300mah battery in the new note. I wish they didn't and would give us something bigger than 3800mah just to help justify its position as the flagship model.

    Most likely, it will be 3500 mAh, the same as the S8+. They may push it to 3600 (like the S7edge).

    The Huawei Mate 9 has a 4000 mah battery. Why can't Samsung do the same?

    What are mate 9's dimensions? Does it have a built in s-pen? Can only compare oranges with 🍊.

    9,000m to 10,000 mAh is my expectation for the battery.

    In a removable battery.

    You guys are freaking fortune tellers! Almost confirmed to be 3300mAH

    I am pretty sure they didn't announce it, it was Evan Blass's leak.

    I too hope your prediction is wrong. 3300 mAh is too small for a Note device. But most likely it will be in that neighborhood 😢

    I too think it will be bigger and I hope so.. I think all their new phones of which have been many since the note 7 have had no battery issues so I think they have solved the battery issues

    We'll all know for sure when Samsung officially announces it.

    Samsung have released many new phones since the note 7 most with big batteries , the battery problems are behind them now. I think they are leaking news about a small battery so we are delighted when it comes out and buy the note 8in millions . Further confirmation look at many of the so called flagships that have come out from other companies they often get negative reviews because of the small batteries usually under 3500.
    With a massive screen, a pen and aimed at power users it must last a full day... Also it will be compared to the forthcoming iPhone which for sure will have Stella battery life... It would be commercial suicide if it doesn't last all day. I don't believe the new processor will be able to achieve this by itself. But maybe this is wishful thinking....?

    Totally impossible to be same size as S8+ and has 4000mAH battery. Unless they suddenly have a new battery technology

    Not gonna happen. I applaud the wishful thinking. I remember we were saying similar things last year about the Note 7 leaks.

    I don't see why they would do it. Last year the GS7 Edge had a 3,600 mAh battery and the Note 7 had a 3,500mAh battery. They need room for the S-Pen while keeping the design they want. A smaller battery seem like the reasonable trend for the Note 8.

    The 3300 mah "leak " might be legit. Thin bezel and device probably means no space for the pen unless battery is smaller.

    8+ has 3500, but no pen to fit in.
