Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 are expected to go official in August during the company’s Galaxy Unpacked event. Ahead of the official debut, a new report surrounding these flagship Samsung foldable smartphones suggests their battery specifications. The battery pack of Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 reportedly appeared on the South Korean certification body Safety Korea suggesting their battery model numbers. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is said to carry two batteries with model numbers EB-BF731ABY and EB-BF732ABY. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 could also pack two batteries with model numbers EB-BF946ABY and EB-BF947ABY. They are said to come with a pull tab to make battery replacement easier.
As per a report by GalaxyClub (Dutch), the batteries of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 have been certified by the South Korean safety certification authority. The Galaxy Z Fold 5’s battery pack reportedly appeared on the site with model numbers EB-BF946ABY and EB-BF947ABY. The batteries are manufactured by ITM Semiconductor in Vietnam and by China’s Amperex Technology Limited. The Galaxy Z Flip 5’s batteries are said to be shown with model numbers EB-BF946ABY and EB-BF947ABY. All four battery units reportedly include a pull tab for easy removal of the battery from the handsets.
The EB-BF731ABY battery of Galaxy Z Flip 5 is said to have a 971mAh capacity, smaller than last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 4’s rated capacity of 1,040mAh. This means the next-gen Galaxy clamshell foldable phone will get a smaller battery than the predecessor. However, it can be confirmed after knowing the capacity of the primary battery with model number EB-BF732ABY.
