The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5, expected to launch in Q3 2023, will pack batteries sourced from LG Energy Solution, reports TheElec. Well, that’s hardly surprising since Samsung has purchased batteries from LG Energy Solution for its foldables for the past three years.
In addition to LG Energy Solution, Samsung will also source the batteries for its 2023 foldable smartphones from Samsung SDI and China’s Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), which should help it avoid any delays that might occur due to issues with the supply chain for the batteries.

The publication also says that the cost of a single battery is expected to be around $10-15, and since the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 will use two cells due to their folding design, the total cost of batteries will be up to $30 per smartphone.
