Researchers believe the material could be used to charge a phone in seconds.
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.”
Applied Graphene Materials plc (LON:AGM) produces and sells graphene products primarily in the United Kingdom. It offers graphene nanoplatelets; and graphene powder in a range of polymer matrices, including thermoset and thermoplastic, as well as adhesives, elastomers, oils, and aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.
