Samsung working on a Smartphone powered by Graphene Battery

Published

Lithium-ion batteries have been the smartphone battery technology standard for a quite a while now. Almost all the smartphone available out there are packed with lithium-ion batteries. Recently, tipster Evan Blass claimed that the South Korean tech giant Samsung is working on a smartphone powered by the Graphene battery technology.

Currently, smartphone batteries last about a day or two. But this could be radically changed in the next two years. According to Blass, Samsung will be releasing one smartphone with a graphene battery by the end of 2020. In his tweet, he mentioned that Lithium-ion batteries are sub-optimal. Samsung is hoping to have a graphene battery in its upcoming smartphones instead of Lithium-ion. These graphene batteries can get charged 100% in less than 30 minutes. Samsung still needs to raise the capacities while lowering the costs.

On paper, the graphene batteries require only 12 minutes to get fully charged. This technology is still something that is hard to believe but yet very close to reality. This graphene battery technology is very expensive to develop. The smartphone packing the graphene batteries do have an ability to charge quickly and also keep cool under intense pressure. Also, they last for a longer duration compared to lithium-ion batteries. Previously, the Huawei Mate 20X used the Graphene cooling technology but Graphene battery material is yet to make its way into the smartphones.

According to Samsung,

This new technology includes a single layer of carbon atoms from Graphite which is known as graphene. This is way more effective than a copper in conducting electricity. It also transfers the energy 140 times faster than lithium technology.

One would certainly expect to see this technology with the Samsung Galaxy S11 series of smartphones, but that might be pretty early for the company. We expect that Samsung will bring this technology with the Galaxy Note 11 series that could launch in August 2020. If Samsung could successfully develop these batteries, it could dramatically bring change in the smartphone battery landscape.
