Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra can use EV battery stacking method to deliver longer battery life
Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 series in February and rumors of the next generation Galaxy S flagship smartphones have already started rolling in. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, which is expected to go official in 2024, is expected to feature new EV battery technology to deliver better battery life. Samsung’s battery manufacturing division plans to apply capacity-boosting technology used in the cells of their electric cars and inside Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to go official alongside the vanilla Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+.
According to a report by The Elec (in Korean), Samsung’s SDI division, which develops and manufactures Li-Ion batteries, is seeking to implement a new battery stacking method for small batteries for smartphones, tablets, laptops and other consumer electronics. Samsung SDI has reportedly collaborated with two Chinese companies to use the stack to manufacture Gen 5 batteries for electric cars. This stacking mechanism, borrowed from the electric vehicle industry, would tightly stack battery components like cathodes and anodes on top of each other for increased energy density.
Samsung is supposed to launch this battery technology with the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Other flagship smartphones and tablets are expected to follow suit. The stacking method is said to increase the energy density by more than 10% compared to the traditional coiling method where battery materials are rolled into jelly rolls and put into boxes.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to come with several upgrades over its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It could feature a 144Hz refresh rate display and use Qualcomm’s unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. It is supposed to run on One UI 6.0 based on Android 14. It is likely to feature 200-megapixel sensors with improved zoom capabilities
The new Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra were launched at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked event in February. Galaxy S23 pricing starts at Rs. 74,999 in India, while Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra have an initial price of Rs. 94,999 and rupees. 1,34,999 respectively. They are powered by a custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy SoC.
