Samsung might soon deliver graphene batteries

Samsung has some time ago introduced a battery technology that uses graphene to make lithium-ion batteries last longer. At the time, everyone was praising and welcoming the new technology, even though the production was extremely expensive.

Evan Blass, a famous Twitter leakster, stated though that the Korean giant is actually on the verge of unveiling a device with a graphene battery “either next year or 2021”.

Graphene, as a material, is highly conductive and elastic. It was deemed as an alternative to lithium-ion batteries back in 2004. It is a form of carbon that can be implemented in smaller, slimmer battery packs with higher capacity, faster charging and powering speeds, without a great difference in its surface temperature.

However, like any other new technology, graphene batteries are also extremely expensive. Blass said that while Samsung might have an actual product, the company still needs to work on raising capacities and lowering production costs. We shouldn’t be surprised to see the phone with such a battery sometime soon.
