Samsung Electronics has learned a lot from the past the past scandal of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery explosions. The company is more conscious about the quality assurance of the products and defiantly the company work a lot about their smartphone batteries.
The company latest smartphone Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus earned for the company and Samsung is able to work in new directions. The company smartphone enabled with the lithium ion that the development team working to shift with the solid state ions.
The innovation of the solid state batteries will be the greatest revolution in the smartphone industry. The batteries will be more powerful and serve for the more benefits to a user.
According to report, the company is planning for the solid state ion batteries as the Korea Herald, a Samsung SDI executive states as:
“Our technological level to produce a solid-state battery for smartphones will be mature enough in one to two years. However, it depends on Samsung Electronics whether it will be used for phones. As far as I know, the level of battery technology of our rival firm (LG Chem) is also similar to us. The batteries will be applied for smartphones first and then for electric vehicles after its safety is fully tested. The application for automobiles may be seen around 2025.”
Moreover, from the report, the Lithium ion batteries are better than the nickel cadmium cells and the world, accepting the lithium ion batteries due to its potential performance. But this time, the solid state batteries for the smartphone will be best alternative that can be proven much batter in the performance. The solid state batteries will be the best replace in the future as Choi Jung-deok, an analyst at LG Economic Research Institute states as:
“Solid-state batteries are a realistic alternative to lithium-ion batteries in solving the chronic safety issue as the development has been relatively faster than other next-generation batteries over the last 10 years.”
Solid state batteries have electrolytes instead of the liquid as the Lithium ion batteries possess. The liquid have a chance to contact with the air or water outside and ignite the explosion. The Samsung Electronics start work for the alternative of the liquid, ion batteries after the explosion of Note 7 series.
However, the solid state batteries have more potential for the storage. The solid state batteries can be used for the other vehicles, but there need more research and test for the vehicles. It is expected, at the end of the year 2025, the vehicles may have the solid state batteries.
