Samsung eyeing South Korean suppliers for smartphone displays and batteries

Samsung eyeing South Korean suppliers for smartphone displays and batteriesAccording to industry sources cited by the Korea Herald, Samsung is looking for domestic (South Korean) suppliers for smartphone displays and batteries. That's due mainly to the Japanese restrictions on exports of three key hi-tech materials - fluorinated polyimide, photoresist and hydrogen fluoride, which are essential for both semiconductors and smartphones.

Samsung is reportedly exploring new suppliers of colorless polyimide (CPI) films, which are essential for foldable displays, and more specifically, the Galaxy Fold. Samsung sources those films from Japan's Sumitomo and is considering Korean companies such as Kolon Industries and SKC to be its backup suppliers. A local newspaper reported Samsung is more likely to cooperate with SKC on the Galaxy Fold CPI films. "The company has been in talks with various customers to provide CPI films, but specific decisions will be made after the manufacturing facility is completed," said an SKC official as he dismissed the report, saying "It is too early to mention a particular product to work together."

At the same, for the Galaxy Note 10 series, one of the battery suppliers is LG Chem, according to the report. Up to now, Samsung has been sourcing out batteries from Samsung SDI and CATL. "It is the first time the LG Chem batteries will be supplied for Samsung's flagship phones," an industry source said. "Since battery materials like separators could also be subject to Japan’s restrictions in a worst-case scenario, the new partnership between Samsung and LG seems advantageous for both groups."Източник
