The speculation on the Galaxy S 5 will continue through its announcement in March, and today’s topic is the battery. The latest word is that it will be a little larger than the Galaxy S 4, which is obviously not surprising. It will come in at 2900 mAh, as opposed to 2600 mAh on the GS4.
What is interesting is that it might be a new lithium-ion technology that stores 20% more energy than most batteries currently on the market. This type of battery uses a silicon anode instead of graphite. Now it not only allows for more storage, but it also offers better longterm life. These batteries will still retain about 80% of their charge after 500 cycles.
