With the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series now on store shelves, all eyes can turn to the company’s next big flagship: the Galaxy S21. Going by past releases, we’d typically expect a new Galaxy S device to be unveiled in February or March time, and a new leak of a key component suggests the company is right on track.

As spotted by MyFixGuide, two new batteries have achieved 3C Certification, and these cells look destined to live inside the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus.  

While at a glance the listing says nothing of Samsung, let alone the S21, the model number contains a big clue. The Samsung Galaxy S21 has the rumored model number of G991, while the S21 Plus is G996 – and both of these are included in the batteries’ codes of EB-BG996ABY and EB-BG991ABY, respectively.

What does the certification tell us? The S21’s battery is listed as being a 3,880mAh cell, while the S21 Plus gets a 4,660mAh unit. Interestingly, while the S21 Plus is allegedly gaining an extra 160mAh on the S20 Plus, the S21 is getting 120mAh less than the S20.
