Samsung's graphene batteries could arrive in time for the Galaxy Note 10

Samsung's graphene batteries could arrive in time for the Galaxy Note 10

Last November, Samsung received a patent for a graphene-based solution that could lead to batteries that hold a whopping 45% more charge than current lithium-ion ones. Now, after years of development, one industry insider is claiming that Samsung’s graphene batteries are essentially done and could even make it into devices as early as next year.

As mentioned above, one of the main benefits is their ability to hold more charge. However, these cells can also be charged around 5 times faster than current solutions. This means that, while a lithium-ion battery may take 1 hour to reach a certain level of charge, graphene alternatives could achieve the same level of charge in just 12 minutes. Moreover, it’s worth noting that, despite the faster charge rate, graphene batteries tend to deteriorate less.

Once production of graphene batteries begins to increase, graphene batteries may also prove to be cheaper than lithium-ion solutions, and are also set to be eco-friendlier. Lastly, and perhaps the best feature of all for companies such as Samsung, is their inability to explode. After all, this will avoid any Galaxy Note 7-like scenarios.

Right now, it’s unclear exactly when Samsung will begin using the new batteries inside its smartphones. However, it’s claimed that the Galaxy Note 10 is a prime candidate. If this is the case, both the battery life and the charging speed of Samsung’s 2019 flagship will likely exceed all previous results, even those of Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro which reaches a 70% charge in just 30 minutes.

2018 was the year of huawei, their innovation year. But 2019 will be Samsung's.

Exactly this is a company pushing tech and limits. Samsung are needed in the industry with their all display patents, graphene batteries and the full screen fingerprint sensor. Hopefully it will show in their profits and make amazing records.

Samsung he has never innovator always copy badly and later he stops dreaming

I think you referring to Apple, Huawei, Xiaomi and others ;)

I guess you don't remember when Samsung paid few hundred million to Apple in some patent lawsuit.

Just like apple has lost patent lawsuits. They all buy tech, so what. It gives us better phones.

Just to help keep you and all the usual idiots grounded and in reality, Samsung did not invent graphene nor are they (Samsung) the first to apply graphene to a commercially available battery. As is typical Samsung simply got out their checkbook and bought the work of others. Nothing at all wrong with that, but tone down the genuflecting.

Just to keep you idiot educated. Samsung didnt bought others works. They collaborates with Sungkyunkwan University to develop amorphous graphene synthesis technology. Stop get butthurt when Samsung develops something good and not Apple.

LOL Samsung didn’t develop anything with any university, they simply buy the research of others. Don’t get butthurt when I point out facts.

LOL, weak link, that "research institution" just buys the work of others. Why don't you post about the inventors of graphene battery technology, and the first commercial applications? Nah, you won't do that, because then you'll see how right I am.

" As is typical Samsung simply got out their checkbook and bought the work of others" Out of all companies Samsung at least produces most of their stuff in home compared to others who always outsource.

Oh know. You brought up the Note 7 fiasco. Prepare for a on slaught.

I'll believe it when I see it, but 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year in tech. Just imagine this technology in an electric car. It would be amazing to see an electric car with 600+ miles of range capable of charging within 15 minutes.

We have to see if they are ready for prime time.

I bet they will make smaller batteries instead of longer lasting ones...

Except Samsung will cut the battery size in half and make the phone 3mm thick. You'll have to keep 2 fingernails extra long just so you can pick the phone up from a flat surface. Kidding aside, It would be nice to have an actual ground

Although I think the thinness race in regular smartphones died out (thankfully), they will have to address this again with foldable smartphones. No one will buy a foldable phone if the thickness is double that of existing phones. Oh, and I agree...they'll still give us a device that can only last a day on a single charge and pack "extra features" to take up the rest of the space.

I got cut off before I could finish the edit. It would be nice for new battery tech to actually see the light of day

Wow, that is a real deal. Please do it for S10...

If this is true... the electric car sales will be explosive!

This will be fantastic! I hope to see note 10 battery's can stay for 20 hours or more ! That's will be great ! Do it Samsung ! Huawei is coming with great phones every year and they will be better in future so do new things like them to keep all your customers !

Patents dont mean sh*t. Most patents by all these major companies are meant to protect them in court cases from trolls in the future. Graphene batteries have been patented and tested from dozens of companies and universities since the last 10 years.

But PA already had an article maybe a year back me toning Samsung was working on these types So what you said was complete BS. We know you dont like Samsung. Notice what the article said. It didn't say this was a patent. It said Samsung has a completed product they could use in the next Note.

Wow. I have in many other articles praised Samsung for their camera and displays. So you can rest in peace on that front. One industry insider says battery tech is essentially done, not completed. PA had an article every year that many companies are working on battery tech. Im not against seeing new battery tech and I dont care who brings it to market first in cellphones. Since you are such a big fanboy. Let me tell you this. Samsung essentially had a in-display fingerprint sensor since 2 years. Yet we are still waiting for it. These technologies take time to manufacture in bulk production and making sure they are safe to use.

I'm guessing that one industry insider is paid for by the oil and gas industry. Battery technology is still improving 10-20% every year, and we still have yet to see this graphene battery, as well as a solid-state battery. Yes these are all still in the lab and have not hit the consumer just yet, but battery technology is far from done. https://electrek.co/2018/10/22/fisker-secures-investment-caterpillar-solid-state-battery-technology/ https://cleantechnica.com/2018/08/19/solid-state-battery-production-will-begin-soon-claims-henrik-fisker/

Wont come to S10 or Note 10. Graphene battery on cellphones will takes long time to test.
