Smartphone companies are mostly focused on developing better hardware or on design, and that is one of the main reasons why we haven’t seen any improvements in the battery department. If there wasn’t for more power-efficient chipsets, the battery life on current smartphones would be a disaster.
Huawei is apparently aware of how big advantage would they have if they develop better batteries and that is exactly what they did. The company has just unveiled the first graphene-assisted Li-ion battery that can withstand higher temperatures when compared with ordinary Li-ion batteries.
They also last much longer. According to Huawei, over 70% of the battery’s capacity remained after 2000 recharge cycles at a temperature of 60C. The technology will soon be available, along with the new quick battery charging tech.
