There is no doubt that phone batteries are constantly improving and evolving, and this serves the systems’ good use of battery resources, battery capacity and the number of milliamperes are among the first things we look at when buying a new phone, and research has not stopped for a moment about innovations that can lead to huge leaps in the life of the battery. Samsung made this almost official and almost certain in a joint announcement with IBM about battery technology that may last for several days, and we are on the cusp of seeing such technology soon.
A phone battery that lasts for days!!
This is possible thanks to a technology called VTFET for Vertical Transport Field Effect Transistors, field-effect transistors or vertical field-transistors, and this is the most advanced form of technology that IBM has developed, and is designed in an innovative way to stack transistors vertically On top of each other instead of the current horizontal, ie building upwards, just like the way skyscrapers are built for apartment buildings and skyscrapers.
This new announcement shows how Samsung is considering adopting this new technology in terms of integrating chips with this new design into consumer products such as Galaxy phones.
But what does VTFET technology and chip integration have to do with battery life?
Stacking transistors on any chip vertically allows electricity to flow more efficiently than in a horizontal design, which is a huge improvement and a huge leap forward. Because the phone case will be greatly reduced in size, so we can see mobile phone batteries that can last for more than a week without the need to charge.
It is important to keep in mind that all phone battery statistics should be taken as general standards and not realistic statistics, for example, the iPhone 13, according to Apple's own testing, can last up to 15 hours of video streaming over the Internet. Or 75 hours of audio playback.
And anyone who has an iPhone 13 knows that this is not true, for daily use, and this is because our phones are always busy, from doing a lot of things at the same time, and a hundred factors from the efficiency of the operating system to the brightness of the screen will affect the battery, which is why we see the statistics of companies A violation compared to the actual use of the phone in the hands of users.
However, even with this in mind, this new battery technology has the potential to significantly extend battery life, possibly doubling the amount of time it can go without having to charge it continuously which is of course good news.
