According to the latest development, a 3C certification reveals how much battery capacity the next year's Samsung flagships, the Galaxy S21, and Galaxy S21+ will pack.
Yes, we literally very recently saw the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 series. There were other devices like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, as well.
However, it seems like the Korean OEM does not want to rest at any time. And is already prepping up for its next year's flagship, the Galaxy S21, and S21+.
As per a 3C certification, the first reference of the Galaxy S21 and S21+ is making rounds of the internet. Besides, MySmartPrice notes that these 3C certifications not for the device, but for the device's battery.
Samsung has to keep its reputation high in today's competitive smartphone market. And that involves always being on its toes for future smartphones.
Notably, the Chinese 3C Certification is mandatory for smartphone OEMs to have before they can sell their products in China. Moreover, failing to comply with 3C certification can lead to detainment of the imported products.
Looking at the certifications, it reveals that the Galaxy S21+ is listed with model number EB-BG996ABY (SM-G996). Apparently, its younger sibling Galaxy S21 carries model number EB-BG991ABY (SM-G991).
There is something fishy about the leaked Galaxy S21 series 3C certifications
More importantly, we noticed something fishy about the leaked Galaxy S21 series 3C certifications. Which we will address in a bit.
As far as the battery capacity of the devices is concerned, the certification shows that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will house a 3,880 mAh capacity battery.
Moreover, the Galaxy S21+ is mentioned to sport a 4,660 mAh capacity battery. What's more noteworthy is that both device's battery is not manufactured by Samsung.
The leaked Galaxy S21 3C certification reveals that it will be manufactured by a China-based battery manufacturing company, called Ningde Amperex Technology Limited.
However, these battery capacities are not at par with what the 2020-Galaxy S20 series phones pack. Notably, the Galaxy S20 comes with 4,000 mAh, Galaxy S20 Plus with 4,500 mAh, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra with 5,000 mAh battery.
So, clearly these are simply rated capacities. Besides, we expect them the upcoming Galaxy S21 series devices to pack a more value battery than listed in the 3C certification.
Now coming to the fishy part of the certifications, if you have noticed with eagle-eyes, the model and specification tab has wrongly spelled "specification" as "secification."
We might be wrong here, as it could be due to the translation from Chinese to English. Or we might have struck the right chord. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below about the leaked battery specs for the Galaxy S21 and S21+.
