  • Xiaomi has introduced new battery tech for its smartphones.
  • This will permit for 10% greater capacity for the same battery quantity.
  • Expect mass-production of this tech in the second half of 2022.

Battery capacity has are available in leaps and bounds from the early 2010s, when it wasn’t unusual to see batteries with 2,000mAh capacities or a lot decrease. These days, 4,000mAh tends to be the minimal for a lot of manufacturers, but Xiaomi has now introduced new tech that enables it to squeeze even more capacity into the same battery size.

The firm introduced new battery expertise (h/t: Xiaomi on Weibo) that maintains the same battery quantity but will increase capacity by as much as 10%. This is made potential due to new high-silicon battery tech, providing a claimed three-fold enhance in the battery’s silicon content material, together with upgraded packaging, and a so-called “Fuel Gauge” chip.

More particularly, Xiaomi says battery life will be elevated by 100 minutes with the new tech. We’re guessing this relies on the cellphone’s battery capacity and different elements (e.g. whether or not it has a excessive refresh fee, the kind of chipset, and so forth).

When will we see this tech?

Xiaomi says its new battery tech might be mass-produced in the second half of 2022. This timeline suggests we’ll see the first industrial gadgets with the tech both at the finish of 2022 or in early 2023. So you received’t be seeing this on the Xiaomi 12 sequence simply but.

This nonetheless seems like a reasonably welcome improve, particularly in immediately’s period when 5G and excessive refresh fee screens put a fair greater drain on the battery. It also needs to be a boon for gadgets like clamshell foldables, which are likely to have smaller batteries than typical smartphones. This would possibly result in barely thinner or smaller typical telephones too, as the firm might theoretically shrink capacity barely and nonetheless provide the same battery life as earlier than.
