The latest information shows that the Samsung Galaxy S24 series flagship phone will have not only one or two battery suppliers, but three.
That’s known through a series of listings from regulators in South Korea, and at least Samsung will be using this three-pronged battery supplier strategy for the Galaxy S24 +, with the standard and Ultra versions likely to do the same.
Those three suppliers are Samsung SDI Vietnam, China’s CATL and ELENTEC India. At least for the Galaxy S24 +, all three companies will provide the same battery, model number EB-BS926ABY.
The model number EB-BS926ABY was revealed on South Korean safety agency SafetyKorea back in August, in addition to the standard Galaxy S24’s battery model number EB-BS992ABY and the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s battery model number EB-BS928ABY.
In August only one Galaxy S24 series battery supplier (CATL) was confirmed, now it is shown that there are at least three.
According to rumors, the Ultra version could be the biggest change among the three upcoming flagship phones, which could feature a straight-screen design and reports suggest that the device will use a titanium frame.
The Standard and Plus versions of the Galaxy S24 could also have straighter bezels, similar to the latest Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 flagship phones. In addition to these design upgrades, the upcoming flagship phone is also expected to come with another Qualcomm Snapdragon chip exclusively for the “Galaxy”, for those markets that don’t use the Exynos 2400 SoC. The Exynos chip is said to be returning to Samsung’s flagship lineup with the release of the Galaxy S24 series, which features a 10-core CPU and a GPU twice as powerful as the Exynos 2200 GPU.
