Seoul, Feb 17 (EFE).- Samsung Electronics will add Sony Energy Devices, the battery-manufacturing subsidiary of the Japanese conglomerate that is set to be acquired by Murata Manufacturing around early-July, as one of its suppliers for its new smartphone Galaxy S8, sources close to the matter told EFE Dow Jones Friday.

Samsung will use the lithium-ion batteries made by Sony in its smartphones to avoid a repeat of the unprecedented recall of its devices in 2016 over spontaneous combustions of its Note 7 smartphones.

The problem, that began a few days after the phone was put on sale, originated from its battery according to company investigation and cost the firm around 6.1 trillion won (around $5.3 billion), and led to a halt in production within two months of its release.

Samsung Electronics until now had two battery suppliers, Samsung SDI and the Hong Kong-based Kong Amperex Technology (subsidiary of Japanese electronics manufacturer TDK).

Sony began making batteries in 1975 and became the world leader in lithium-ion battery sales in 1991, but over the last few years it has lost its competitive advantage to South Korean competitors. EFE
