Samsung’s 2023 foldables will use batteries that can be easily removed
Battery packs for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 have a pull tab for easy removal
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a model number of SM-F946 and could contain battery packs EB-BF946ABY and EB-BF947ABY. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 carries the model number of SM-F731 and the battery packs for the clamshell might be model numbers EB-BF731ABY and EB-BF732ABY. The Galaxy Club says that the secondary battery for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 (EB-BF731ABY) has a rated capacity of 971mAh. This is a tad lower than the secondary battery on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 which is rated at 1,040mAh.
The knee-jerk reaction to this information is to say that the total battery capacity for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 clamshell flipper will be lower than the 3700mAh capacity for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. But without knowing the capacity of the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s primary battery (EB-BF732ABY), there is no way to know for sure. Also, Samsung could be counting on the more efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, expected to power both upcoming foldable models, to help deliver improved battery life.
The batteries that Samsung will use for its 2023 foldables are being sourced from Amperex.
