Currently, Samsung SDI is experimenting and reviewing the pouch and packet size batteries and implementing a new stack-based technology to manufacture its batteries, which took it ideally out of the cars, which are now being applied to its new foldable smartphone that will be launched later this year.
‘TheElec’ revealed that Samsung MX Business, the mobile business, has reviewed the small pocket-sized batteries in the Galaxy Fold 4 LG Energy solutions. If Samsung approves the use of LG Energy Solutions batteries for its new device Galaxy Fold 4. Then it’s going to be the first time he’s going to use this battery for his foldable use.
Industry sources said that both are under discussion and that LG is more likely to become a supplier of foldable smartphone batteries next year, saying that batteries have been well received by MB Business.
Until last year Samsung has used batteries from Samsung SDI when it had earlier launched the batteries for the foldable smartphones in 2021.
Why Samsung is sourcing batteries from LG Energy Solutions?
Samsung Electronics is doing this to get the benefits in terms of cost-saving. Samsung wants to reduce the cost of batteries which is one of the main components of foldable smartphones. Therefore Samsung is in talks with more original development manufacturers to handle its battery and foldable production.
Chinese developers are using the batteries from ATL and BYD for their smartphone production. This might have increased the competitiveness which is why to maintain the cost Samsung might have taken this step.
