Smartphone manufacturer, Sony Corporation, is planning to increase battery life for its smartphones by a whopping 40 %.
Reports from the company say there are plans to increase energy density per volume by 40% from the current 700Wh/L to 1,000Wh/L by using a sulfur (S) compound as an electrode material. This technology, the company reports, will be fully implemented by 2020.
Currently, Sony smartphones exhaust their battery in one day if actively used, which is a huge concern for many users. If the technology is successfully implemented, Sony could see increase in sales by a great margin.
Sony’s latest smartphone, Sony Xperia Z5 Dual, is super elegant whose features include Android 5.1.1 powered by a 2900mAh non removable battery, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 23-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.These features makes it one of the best smartphones in the market but battery life is extremely short.Plans to increase battery life could give the company edge over rivals-Apple and Samsung.
