Samsung might call on LG for Galaxy S8 batteries


After Samsung switched to an entirely new battery supplier for the Galaxy Note 7 and still suffered issues, the company is seemingly unwilling to rule out doing business with any partners for battery tech in the future. Even if that partner is their long-time rival LG.

A Samsung spokesperson said that LG Chem — the chemical development arm of LG — was included in a long list of potential suppliers for the future. Samsung had originally used batteries from their own SDI firm, and the second attempt was made with a Chinese company known as ATL.

The unlikely circumstances of suffering the same faulty component issue from 2 different suppliers brings unlikely solutions for the future. For Samsung, that means getting into bed with the rivals situated in their own backyard.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
