A team of researchers led by John Goodenough, a professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has managed to create the first all-solid-state battery cell that can be used to build an improved battery.
The new battery will be safer than the actual lithium-ion battery, will charge faster, and will last much longer.
The improved battery technology will be used to power smartphones, electric cars and stationary energy storage systems.
Professor Goodenough along with his fellow researcher Maria Helena Braga, created the new low-cost solid-state battery that is non-combustible and can store much more energy than conventional lithium-ion batteries, and can be charged much faster (in minutes, not hours).
It seems that the new battery technology can store up to three times more energy than conventional lithium-ion batteries (three times higher energy density), and with a faster rate of recharge, means that the new battery will recharge our mobile phones and electric cars much faster.
In addition, due to the fact that allows a greater number of charging and discharging cycles, the new battery will last much longer than conventional batteries.
Samsung launched the new Galaxy S8 last week, and they’ve said that a new era of smartphone design is starting, an era without edges or limits.
Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with more screen in a completely new form, the infinity display means that the new smartphone provides an end-to-end screen that spills over the sides of the phone.
The screen presents now a completely smooth and continuous surface, which on the front of the phone consists in a pure, pristine glass that flows seamlessly into the aluminum shell.
The usable surface of the phone is now stretched over the entire front of the device.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is the first mobile device that earned a mobile HDR Premium Certification from the UHD Alliance.
Samsung teamed up with Amazon Prime video and others to bring HDR content to mobile.
You can now stream movies and shows, like Amazon’s award winning original series, in its original crisp and realistic colors right from your phone.
The “Home” button was moved beneath the infinity screen to provide the user with more screen.
You can choose your next Samsung Galaxy S8 from five different colors.
The new wireless charging pad provided by Samsung comes now with more charging options (the phone can stay in different positions while charging).
Samsung Galaxy S8 uses a 3,000 mAh battery, and Galaxy S8+ uses a 3,500 mAh battery.
The front camera is now better, and uses an 8-megapixel sensor and autofocus that detects your face.
The device is water and dust resistant, so can be used in different environments without any worries.
Samsung Galaxy S8 uses now a new 10 nm smartphone processor that is faster and more powerful than any processor ever made by Samsung.
To unlock the phone you can use four different ways, by using a password, by using the fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone right next to the camera, by using the iris scanner, or by using face scanning.
Samsung Galaxy S8 uses a 5.8 inch screen and Galaxy S8+ uses a 6.2 inch screen.
The main camera uses the same 12-megapixel sensor, but Samsung says that it has improved the image processing software.
Bixby is Samsung’s new intelligent agent, and was created to help the user to speak with the phone instead of touching the screen.
