Good news! Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 could launch with lower price tags – Phandroid – News for Android

Apple and Samsung are quite similar to each other when it comes to smartphone development. Both companies try to source technology and build their own components as a way to reduce dependence on others, and also to better control the kind of phones they make and give them a more competitive edge over other brands that use generic parts.
We’ve seen Samsung utilize their own technology in their smartphones like displays, cameras, and chipsets, but it seems that sometimes sourcing outside could be more beneficial, which is something Samsung is apparently considering for its upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 smartphones.
This is according to a report from The Elec who claims that for the upcoming foldables, Samsung might actually source its batteries from ATL (who coincidentally also supplies to Apple). Right now, Samsung sources some of its batteries from Samsung SDI, a subsidiary of the firm, but it appears that by sourcing from ATL, it could result in the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 launching with lower price tags.
Samsung’s foldables aren’t cheap and by seeking out an alternative supplier besides themselves, the company could lower the price and make the phones more appealing to customers who might have otherwise held off due to price. Exactly how much cheaper is unclear, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, recent reports have suggested that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 might actually have battery life similar to its predecessor which is a bit of a bummer, but interestingly enough, Samsung could have something special planned for the Galaxy S23 series where they might borrow battery technology from electric vehicles.
