Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most awaited smartphones of recent times. Hardly a day goes by without the phone making it to the news. Samsung has been in the middle of various legal controversies in their home country, but the hype around the upcoming S8 smartphone doesn’t seem to be affected. In latest reports, it has now been observed by the Wall Street Journal that the upcoming Samsung flagship device might be powered by batteries manufactured by Sony.

Batteries on a Samsung flagship device is quite a touchy matter! Samsung, in this partnership with Sony, looks forward to diversify their partnerships when it comes to the smartphone batteries. Sony is a trusted name in the market, and has good relations with most manufacturers as it is one of the biggest makers of camera lenses.

It is also interesting to note that Sony will not be the sole supplier of batteries for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones. Samsung is reportedly getting three names on board, the first being Samsung SDI itself, and the other two both being from Japan – Sony, and Murata Manufacturing.

Samsung is indeed giving special attention to the battery this time.  The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco was quite a lesson for Samsung, as well as the world of smartphone manufacturers at large. Samsung is all set to launch their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones in the months to follow. The company is likely to tease this device at the MWC 2017 event.

Samsung and Sony getting together for the batteries on the Samsung Galaxy S8 is indeed a good news. This will also help boost the brand’s goodwill as people can now be assured that Samsung is indeed taking special precautionary measures to ensure the phones are safe! Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
