Samsung will take batteries for third-party folding phones. Why?

  • Samsung will present a new generation of its puzzles this summer
  • Both the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the clamshell Galaxy Z Flip 4 will arrive
  • Thanks to the new batteries, these could be the most affordable jigsaw puzzles made by the manufacturer

Will the successor to Fold 3 receive a battery from another supplier?

Folding phones are still among the most expensive devices, but in contrast, when they came on the market, they are significantly more affordable. And this year it could be a bit better in this respect. Samsung is said to be making its new generation of Galaxy Z puzzles cheaper again, which should allow it to use batteries from a new supplier.

Samsung will have a new battery supplier

Dle report server The Elec Samsung plans to enter into a partnership with Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), which could supply the South Korean giant with batteries for its folding phones. It is one of the largest manufacturers in the industry, which supplies batteries for example Apple to his iPhones.

If this partnership really happens, it would be the first time that Samsung has used batteries from a supplier other than SDI, its subsidiary, for its devices. In addition to ATL, LG has recently been talking about batteries, so it’s clear that Samsung is trying to diversify its component sources.

The upcoming Fold 4 could have a cheaper battery

Cheaper batteries in puzzles?

There has been a lot of talk lately that the upcoming Galax Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 puzzles will be a bit cheaper and more affordable than their predecessors. Lower prices could be achieved by using cheaper batteries from ATL, although batteries account for a smaller share of the total price of phones.

On the other hand, every dollar saved in production counts and could have a positive effect on the final price. A typical phone battery today costs the manufacturer some $ 6 to $ 8 (140 – 190 crowns), so we’re not really talking about any extreme savings, but rather about reducing the price by tens of crowns. But as the saying goes – it doesn’t have to rain, just drip.

Will others get a chance?

But the fact is, if Samsung diversified its resources in several areas, it could achieve a significant reduction in production costs. Trying to find new, even smaller and lesser-known suppliers who will do the same service for better money is certainly a good way to reduce prices for still relatively expensive puzzles. We will see if the possible use of batteries from ATL in the final price of Fold 4 and Flip 4 will really be reflected in the end.
