Samsung, a well-known smartphone maker, is preparing to release its latest Galaxy S series, which includes the highly anticipated Galaxy S24 Ultra flagship phone.

Recent reports suggest that Samsung's battery manufacturing division is developing a new electric vehicle battery technology to enhance the battery life of smartphones.

EV battery technology:

Samsung's battery manufacturing division is exploring a new battery stacking technique inspired by the electric vehicle (EV) industry to enhance the energy density of small batteries for various consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and notebooks.

Samsung's SDI division, responsible for developing and producing Li-Ion batteries, is partnering with two Chinese firms to implement a stacking method for producing Gen 5 batteries intended for electric vehicles. This stacking process involves tightly arranging battery components, such as cathodes and anodes, to achieve higher energy density. This information comes from The Elec.

Compared to the traditional winding method, where battery materials are rolled into jelly rolls and placed in cans, the stacking technique is predicted to improve energy density by more than 10%.

Expected upgrades in Galaxy S24 Ultra:

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to offer numerous improvements over its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Among the anticipated upgrades is a 144Hz refresh rate display, promising users a more fluid and responsive experience.

Rumored to run on One UI 6.0, based on Android 14, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra promises to offer the latest software advancements to users.

The device is also expected to utilise the unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC from Qualcomm, ensuring improved performance and power efficiency.

Furthermore, Samsung is speculated to equip the phone with 200-megapixel sensors, featuring better zoom capabilities, and offering users a top-notch photography experience.
