Samsung Electronics is reportedly equipping both the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G with batteries supplied by the same manufacturer as before, namely Samsung SDI. This might not be surprising news, however, there was a possibility that Samsung would switch to another supplier, especially since the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S20 series rely on batteries supplied by LG Chem.

According to a report from The Elec citing anonymous industry sources, Samsung Electronics has decided to stick with Samsung SDI for the production of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G batteries because of cost concerns. Both sequels are expected to have virtually the same batteries as the original models, which means that Samsung SDI can use its existing molds and production lines without having to increase production costs. In contrast, partnering with a different supplier such as LG Chem would have resulted in higher investments from Samsung Electronics.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be powered by two batteries with a combined capacity of 4,365mAh. Each battery resides in one half of the phone. One unit has a capacity of 2,135mAh and the other is rated at 2,245mAh. In contrast, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G should have a 2,500mAh unit in one half and a 704mAh battery in the other for a combined capacity of ~3,200mAh.
