The successor to the Samsung Galaxy S2 could rock a battery that lasts all day, the Korean electronics giant has hinted.
While it’s hardly new for manufacturer to promise improved battery life, Sammy’s intentions may be sincere this time around, as it looks to build on its tremendous rise to the mobile summit in the last two years.
Speaking at CES 2012, Kevin Packingham, VP of product innovation at Samsung, said: “When you wake up to when you go to bed, we don't want you feeling anxiety about your battery life.”
Running out of juice has been one of the perennial thorns on the side for modern smartphone users, as the latest handsets become increasingly more powerful thanks to multi-core processors and bigger screens.
Although Packingham doesn’t specifically refer to the hitherto unannounced Galaxy S3, it doesn’t take much to put two and two together and realise that’s what’s really on everyone’s mind.
Packingham hopes that Samsung can address some of the concern with larger batteries. However, the company is also hard at work in sourcing more energy-efficient components, namely processors that significantly reduce power consumption while still increasing the number of cores for faster performance.
Whether it actually pans out to be the case is something we’re likely to find out at next month’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, where Sammy’s expected to take the stage to unveil its newest additions to the Galaxy family.
