Previously, Samsung removed the Chinese firm from its supply chain when its batteries were pointed as the cause of the Galaxy Note 7 fires. However, ATL has since then restarted to supply its batteries to the South Korean tech giant, mostly for mid-tier models.
So far, ATL has supplied its batteries for Galaxy A, Galaxy M, Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. Furthermore, the Chinese battery bamker has began supplying its batteries for Samsung’s flagships again for the Galaxy S21 series. Following this, Samsung could also cut unit prices from Samsung SDI by giving orders to ATL.
As per the report, the Chinese company will supply the 3,800mAh battery for the standard Galaxy S22, 4,500mAh battery for the Galaxy S22 Plus and 5,000mAh battery for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. It’s worth mentioning that the battery capacity for S22 has decreased 200mAh and S22 Plus model 300mAh from their predecessors.
