Samsung To Replace Some SDI & ATL Batteries With Sony For Galaxy S8

Well, precautions has to be taken and this is
exactly what Samsung is doing to prevent a
reoccurrence of what happened last year,
when the flagship Note 7 smartphone went
into an explosion spree, which resulted in the
massive destruction of properties, and series
of skin burns.

When these explosions occurred,
investigations revealed that they were not
unconnected to the SDI and ATL batteries
which Samsung used for the Galaxy Note 7
smartphone. However, this is about to
change – partially though.

According to reliable reports, from the Wall
Street Journal, it has it that Samsung has
selected Sony as the third battery supplier for
the Galaxy S8, with the first two still SDI and
ATL.

Same reports also confirms that battery
packs that will be utilized for the Galaxy S8
will come from the battery unit of Japan’s
Sony Corp. but neither Samsung nor Sony
have come forward to officially release this
news.

The volume Sony would be supplying is
however, relatively minute when compared
with the SDI and ATL ones. I guess Samsung
is still banking on them to do a good job this
time around.

You might think this is a foolish move but
come to think of this, there is a high
probability that is is these same suppliers
that has been supplying Samsung’s batteries
from the very day one. How on earth do you
expect them to just dump their “customers”
because of one failed attempt out of many
very successful ones. I don’t think that is
reasonable enough.

Further more, just to be totally sure we not
not encounter the Note 7 scenario again, as
it was very devastating, the smartphone
industry giant have opted to test the Note 7
batteries in-house in lieu of trusting third-
party companies.

Well, we can only wish Samsung good luck
with all that. And we now wait on whoever is
going to patronage Samsung. I’m sure there
are some loyal customers who would still
buy a Samsung device and a lot more who
wouldn’t take the risk for anything.
