New Details Emerge On The Battery Supplier For The Galaxy S22

Samsung Galaxy S21 Review AM AH 08

The Galaxy Note 7 was one of Samsung’s most infamous smartphones due to its faulty batteries. This was traced down to batteries produced by Amperex Technology Limited (ATL). Samsung broke off ties with ATL after the Note 7 fiasco. A new report (via) is now indicating that ATL will be involved yet again with the Galaxy S22.

However, ATL will not be the sole supplier of batteries for the upcoming Samsung flagship. Much like in the past, Samsung SDI will also contribute towards a portion of the batteries required for the Galaxy S22.

Samsung has instituted rigorous safety standards after the Galaxy Note 7 incident. While ATL was cut off from Samsung for a while, the supplier has since provided batteries for the company’s Galaxy A and M series of phones.


ATL batteries also feature on the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Watch lineup. Moreover, this year’s Galaxy S21 flagship features ATL’s batteries underneath, so it’s safe to say that the two companies are back on good terms again.

Samsung may use a smaller battery with the Galaxy S22

Earlier today, a leak revealed information on the battery of the Galaxy S22. Surprisingly, the early 2022 flagship could feature a downgraded 3,700mAh battery as compared to the 4,000mAh unit on the predecessor.  However, it’s too early to reach conclusions since the phone is months away from release.

Other leaks have told us what the phone will look like, while also giving us a decent idea about its performance. Last week, the Snapdragon 898 version of the Galaxy S22 appeared on the Geekbench database with the model number SM-S901U.


We’ve also learned that some variants of the Galaxy S22 will offer the Exynos 2200 chipset. Among the notable features of this new chip is the integrated AMD RDNA 2 GPU that drives upgraded graphics performance.

Separately, we’ve learned that the Galaxy S22 and the S22+ will offer a 50-megapixel primary rear camera. Following a ton of speculation, we now know that Samsung will use the ISOCELL GN5 sensor for the phones. This offering uses the company’s Dual Pixel Pro autofocus tech that provides quick multi-directional autofocus.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about the Galaxy S22. But we hope to uncover additional details over the next few weeks and months.
