Graphene batteries will perform better in future Smartphones
Evan Blass, a famous American blogger and phone leaker has tweeted(@evleaks) that Samsung will come up with Graphene Battery Technology in near future. This new technology will to be introduced through its smartphones in late 2020 or beginning of 2021. However, Samsung has announced about this since 2017. Currently smartphones are using Lithium-ion technology for their batteries which remains for one or two days of lifetime life time in single charge. “Samsung is hoping to have at least one handset either next year or in 2021, I’m told, which will feature a graphene battery instead. Capable of a fully charge in under a half hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.” said by Blass. However, the most recent flagship series which are Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note10 do not have Graphene battery. This will be launched with Galaxy Note11 and Galaxy S12 in the end of 2020.
According to the tests were done by Samsung, graphene batteries are capable of full charging within half an hour. So, it could charge up to 5x times faster than current lithium-ion battery. Another advantage that could be identified here is graphene batteries are flexible and less weighted. And also, it will be cheaper than lithium-ion batteries.
