The new dual-celled battery has four pull-tabs, similar to the shorter ones we found in the 8 series, albeit in an entirely new orientation.

The pull-tabs are adhered to the sides of the cells, rather than folded over the top, making the procedure a little trickier than usual.

This phone is packing a 10.35 Wh (2716 mAh at 3.81 V) battery, just beating out the 10.28 Wh 8 Plus battery—but still trailing the Galaxy Note8 with its 12.71 Wh behemoth.

The dual-cell design is more of a space-utilization measure than a capacity-changing one. Two cells allows for more creative shapes and placement, to best take advantage of the space left over by shrinking the logic board.
