Last year, Samsung announced a change in policy when it comes to its smartphone business. The best phones that Samsung manufactures, including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, will not be the devices to introduce new hardware innovations. Instead, the company will use mid-range phones to showcase new technologies and then take them to flagship phones. We saw what happened with triple and quad lens cameras last fall, as well as with the first Infinity-O screen. These features began on mid-range phones before finally reaching the Galaxy S10 and Note 10.
With that in mind, we are not surprised to hear that Samsung is developing a phone with a massive 6,000 mAh battery. But that device is not the Galaxy S11, and it is not known if Samsung's next flagship will end up receiving a high capacity battery like this.
Dutch blog GalaxyClub found regulatory documents in Korea that show the image below, which is a 6,000 mAh smartphone battery.

It is believed that the battery will power a new model Galaxy M that will be launched in the future, but it is not clear when the phone will be released. This is the second time we hear that Samsung is working on a 6,000 mAh phone, but now we have a real visual confirmation of the battery.
Samsung also released an M20 version with a 5,000 mAh battery (top image), so the update makes sense for the series. However, unlike the series phones Galaxy Because Samsung uses to introduce new smartphone features, the M series could have a different purpose. M phones are priced cheaper than the A series, and are intended for emerging markets such as India, where battery capacity is a key feature when choosing a new phone.
Packing a 6,000 mAh phone into a device with sophisticated components such as an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the screen or a multi-lens camera system could be easier said than done. Those components tend to reduce the amount of space available for the battery. And after the disaster of Note 7, Samsung is very careful with the safety of the battery.
The same goes for the Galaxy Note, where a part of the phone's internal space is reserved for the S Pen stylus. Samsung explained earlier this week that it removed the headphone jack from the phones Note 10 to increase the battery life by about miserable 100 mAh. The road to shock capacity from 4,500 mAh to 6,000 mAh in these phones is more complicated.
All this is speculation at the moment, since it is not clear when the new one will be launched Galaxy M with this massive battery. However, when it starts, it is very possible that it lasts several days before it needs to be recharged.
