Samsung is pushing the limits of technology really hard these days. If you ask me, I truly believe they are one of the most innovative companies when it comes to smartohones, and the problem of smartphone autonomy seems to concern them quite seriously. The South Korean company has just patented a new technology for graphene-based batteries.
The new type of battery is made of a material called graphene balls that promises extraordinary results. A battery made from such material will have greater autonomy, the capacity will be up to 45% higher and the charging time will be 5 times faster. Nowadays, a top-notch smartphone having a Li-Ion battery will charge from 0 to 100% in 1 hour and 15 minutes. If (when) this technology will be available, the new generation of smartphones will fully charge within 15 minutes.
Batteries having a graphene-ball-based structure will be perfect for other devices, especially because it operates up to 60 degrees Celsius without adverse chemical reactions. Unfortunately, there are very few chances to see smartphones with such a battery in the next 2-3 years.
