Samsung News believes that this technology could land in time for the release of the Galaxy S10, which is expected early next year. A series of rumors on Sina Weibo, relayed by SamMobile, confirm the news. In the absence of official communication, we invite you all to take this information with tweezers.
This is not really a surprise: in November 2017, Samsung announced working on graphene batteries capable of increasing battery life by nearly 45%. In the process, the manufacturer patented this embryonic technology in the United States and South Korea.
Graphene is also able to charge the battery of a smartphone 5 times faster. In just 12 minutes, a graphene battery is able to recharge completely. For comparison, the quick recharge of OnePlus 6 promises 50% autonomy in 30 minutes of charge. For its part, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s SuperCharge fast charge does not exceed 80% charge in 36 minutes (which is already exceptional).
Graphene also allows batteries to deteriorate much less quickly than traditional batteries. Their production would also be less expensive. Also graphene batteries are not likely to explode . With this new technology, Samsung is definitely turning the page of Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, occurred in 2016.
For the time being, it is completely unknown when graphene batteries will land on the market. The technology could very well be integrated in Galaxy S10, which will be announced in early 2019. Given the current strategy of the brand, graphene could also enter a mid-range model , like a Galaxy A.
