Samsung makes controversial decision for Galaxy S21

The smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S21 range are expected to be introduced in the first quarter of 2021, meaning that they are now practically designed. But, is the brand more concerned with increasing profit margins?

While Samsung SDI is currently responsible for the batteries we find in high-end Samsung smartphones, it is common practice to use multiple suppliers to meet production needs, even if it means “going to the competition”.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 will have batteries from China

Samsung Battery

According to the South Korean publication thelec.kr, cited by Sammobile, Samsung is looking for Chinese suppliers for batteries that will integrate the next generation with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Amperex was the Chinese manufacturer chosen for this purpose, and it is not the first time that Samsung has used its products. In fact, the Galaxy A and Galaxy M smartphones, both entry-level and mid-range, came from that source.

Furthermore, Amperex has also equipped some lots in the Galaxy S9 range. It should be noted that Amperex is highly regarded in the market where it operates, standing out in the production of batteries for mobile devices and reduced formats.

The potential controversy lies in Samsung’s motivation

Most likely, we are facing a measure of cost containment and maximization of profit margins by Samsung, anticipating the launch of the Galaxy S21. At the same time, an increase in the capacity of the batteries that integrate the current tops of the range, the Galaxy S20, S20 + and S20 Ultra with 4000, 4500 and 4800 mAh, respectively, is ruled out.

This means that the next generation of Samsung smartphones will have the same battery capacity, which does not mean the absence of improvements in autonomy. Still, reactions to the decision ended up annoying some South Korean fans.

The use of Amperex batteries has already been confirmed through product certifications. It should also be noted that Samsung will also use other suppliers to equip the next generation of Galaxy S21 smartphones.
