2020 Graphene phone battery may be in development

Cnet.com reported today that a 2020 graphene phone battery may be in development.

Samsung may be working on an alternative to lithium-ion batteries for its phones. The company hopes to have at least one phone with a graphene battery ready next year or by 2021, according to reporter and frequent Twitter leaker Evan Blass.

“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,” tweeted Blass on Monday. “Capable of a full charge in under a half-hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.”

Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Graphene has been touted as a “wonder material” because of its unique properties. In phones, researchers believe graphene batteries could improve energy storage and significantly speed up charging. In 2017, Samsung said its researchers developed a “graphene ball” material that enables five times faster charging speeds than standard lithium-ion batteries. Read full article here.

About the National Graphene Association (NGA)

The National Graphene Association is the main organization and body in the U.S. advocating and promoting the commercialization of graphene. NGA is focused on addressing critical issues such as policy and standards development that will result in effective integration of graphene and graphene-based materials globally. NGA brings together current and future graphene stakeholders — entrepreneurs, companies, researchers, developers and suppliers, investors, venture capitalists, and government agencies — to drive innovation, and to promote and facilitate the commercialization of graphene products and technologies.
