"their next device will have a battery half the size of their previous device."

I have my suspicion that this has as much to do with limiting the damage if a 12Wh battery does decide to burn up (vs a 40Wh one) as marketing. It was bad enough when Samsung's galaxies were banned from aircraft due to fire risk, imagine them being banned from public transportation altogether.
