By now you probably have heard of the battery tender that went live on Monday, and for good reason.
The company, a unit of LG Chem, has been busy preparing for the expected arrival of a brand new battery for the new LG Optimus E, an upcoming flagship phone with a price tag of around $8,000.
The LG Optimus G, the previous model of the Optimus E (the one with the Snapdragon 810 processor), was the first phone to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, a Snapdragon 805 processor that will be powering the new Optimus E. If you’ve seen the pictures and videos from LG’s press conference, you may have noticed the same Snapdragon 815 processor in the new phone.
The only major difference between the two phones is that the Optimus G will be the first flagship phone to support the LG UltraPixel camera.
The UltraPixel is a camera that will likely be used on the Optimus phones.
The new LG phone is scheduled to be unveiled on March 12.
The battery tender for the Optimus is not the only device that has been waiting to get its hands on the new battery.
Samsung is also preparing to introduce a new battery that is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, but unlike the Optimus, the Samsung Galaxy S8 battery will be a single-cell variant, rather than a dual-cell one.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery that Samsung recently released was powered by an 818mAh battery that could store up to 12 hours of usage, and Samsung’s Galaxy S7 was powered with a single 18650 battery that was able to store up more than 14 hours of battery life.
The Galaxy Note 8, meanwhile, uses a 6.7-inch 1080p display and can hold up to 8 hours of continuous use.
Both of these devices are expected to be launched in the coming weeks.
If we’re being honest, the Galaxy Note 9 is a bit of a surprise.
Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Note phone is expected to launch in late May, and it will likely come with a bigger, better screen and a bigger battery.
The bigger Galaxy Note 10 will be made with a 16-megapixel camera and a 5.5-inch display, while the smaller Galaxy Note 11 will come with the same 5.8-inch screen and 5.1-inch Display, respectively.
The larger Galaxy Note 15, however, is expected with a 13.3-inch OLED display and a 4K display, as well as a 4.7GHz Snapdragon 836 processor.
It is not known how much money Samsung will be charging for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, which are expected with the upcoming Galaxy Note S series of phones.
While Samsung may be prepared to pay big for the batteries, it’s not clear if it will be able to get them in sufficient quantities.
If the batteries are not ready to be used by the phones, Samsung will likely have to sell off some of the inventory and use it to meet its production needs.
If it can get enough batteries to meet demand, it could be able get an edge over competitors.
However, Samsung has not said how it plans to deal with supply shortages in the event of shortages.
