It seems that batteries for the Galaxy S8 are no more only from China. Recently, a news has appeared on the “Korea Economic Daily” news agent that this time instead of Chinese, the South Korean tech giant Samsung has chosen a Japanese company called The Murata Manufacturing to make batteries for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8. However, the report said that the Japanese company will provide two to eight percent of the aggregate number of batteries for Galaxy S8 while Samsung’s SDI, a division of the company, will make batteries for the rest of the total amount of Galaxy S8 devices made.
In with the new
Murata Manufacturing is a vast Japanese electronic components manufacture company. Last summer the company took over Sony’s battery division. It was a remarkable achievement for the company.
Out with the old
Last year, the Chinese manufacturer ATL (Amperex Technology Ltd) supplied batteries for Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Then the company recalled millions of devices for the battery exploding issue. These Chinese batteries made more disasters for Samsung, burning numerous Galaxy Note 7 devices around the world. Therefore, this time Samsung has chosen the Japanese manufacturer to make batteries for its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone and besides that Samsung has also invested extra $128 million to its SDI division to progress battery safety.
60 million projected sales
However, according to the early report, Samsung is targeting to sell 60 million units of Galaxy S8 handsets around the world. It indicates this time around that with the Galaxy S8, Samsung is more confident as well as more optimistic. We hope that in the future no more battery issues will remain for Samsung’s new flagships.
