Samsung might launch 5100 mAh USB Type-C battery pack along with the Galaxy S8; Expected to be priced at €70


As the launch window for Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S8 smartphone draws near, we seem to have learned pretty much all there is to learn about the device, including the host of new accessories being developed for it. However, there’s one more accessory on the block, and it has to do with the contentious battery component of the latest iteration in the Galaxy series. In what seems to be a tacit nod to the cautiously conservative battery capacity of the Galaxy S8 (which is surprisingly lower than that of the Galaxy S6 Edge), it seems Samsung might be launching an uncannily shaped battery pack alongside the Galaxy S8.

The curvy and asymmetrically designed battery pack is rumoured to pack in a 5100 mAh capacity. The unconventional design has gentle rounded edges all round with a flat cut-out edge housing what appears to be a USB Type-C port and has a lanyard poking out of the centre. The battery pack is expected to allow 15W Fast Charging and according to the leak source, it will come in Samsung’s signature grey and blue shells. The retail price is said to be at €70, which isn’t cheap by any stretch of the imagination.
