Samsung: graphene battery with full charge in less than 30 minutes from 2020?

Samsung has been working on graphene batteries for several years, with the promise of better battery life and a much shorter charging time. The company aims 2020 for the launch of the first smartphone equipped with a battery using this material and it could be loaded in less than half an hour.


The smartphone market has been idling for several months, a situation that may not improve much before the next big innovation in the industry. This could come from the side of the batteries and Samsung wants to be at the forefront of this evolution. Graphene batteries have been talked about for years, and the Korean giant is particularly advanced in this field. Latest news, its first commercial models are expected to be launched by 2020, or 2021 at the latest late.

Samsung: soon its first smartphones with a graphene battery?

The information comes from Evan Nelson Blas (Eveleaks), reputed to be well informed about the Korean manufacturer. He says that "Samsung hopes to have at least one smartphone by 2020 to 2021 with a graphene battery (...). She will be able to fully charge in less than half an hour. It only remains to increase their capacity while reducing costs, "explains the leaker.

Graphene has been presented for some years as a "miracle material" because of its unique properties. It can be used in combination with silicon which has an energy density 10 times greater than the graphite used in current lithium-ion batteries. This combination will significantly improve the battery life while accelerating charging time. A race is engaged since a few years between the various manufacturers.

With the Mate 20 X, Huawei uses a graphene cooling system. However, as far as batteries are concerned, technology has not yet found a place in our smartphones. Samsung seems to be closest to the finish line. It remains to be seen how much will cost a smartphone equipped with a graphene battery, cost remains one of the main obstacles.
