According to a report in The Elec, Samsung’s SDI division is looking to introduce a new battery stacking technology for smaller batteries in smartphones, tablets, notebooks and other consumer electronics devices. The division manufactures Li-ion batteries. Samsung SDI has reportedly partnered with two Chinese companies to use stacking to make Generation 5 batteries for electric cars. This stacking mechanism, borrowed from the EV industry, will stack battery components such as cathode and anode with each other to increase energy density.
There is a possibility that Samsung may bring this battery technology with the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Other smartphones and tablets are also likely to operate at the same level. The stacking method is said to increase energy density by more than 10 percent over the normal winding method, where the battery contents are rolled into a jelly roll and placed in a can.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra is likely to come with several upgrades over the pre-existing Galaxy S23 Ultra. In this, 144Hz refresh rate display can be given. This phone can work on Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. This phone will run on One UI 6.0 based on Android 14. There is a possibility of getting 200 megapixel sensor with better zooming in this phone.
Samsung launched the new Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked event in February. These smartphones work on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform. The starting price of Galaxy S23 in India is Rs 74,999, the starting price of Galaxy S23+ is Rs 94,999 and the starting price of Galaxy S23 Ultra is Rs 1,24,999.
