Nokia Bell Labs, a research subsidiary of the famed Finnish telecom giant Nokia, has recently announced a revolutionary battery design for smartphones. Their claim? This new battery can last “2.5 times longer than the current best in the market”. The cherry on top? They achieved this without adding any extra weight to the device.
The genius of this innovation lies not just in extending battery life, but in ensuring the battery efficiently harnesses energy from fluctuating renewable sources like solar and wind. This groundbreaking technology came into existence through a collaboration between Nokia Bell Labs and AMBER, a leading research center in Ireland.
Paul King from Nokia Bell Labs believes this advancement will particularly benefit the 5G networks, remarking, “This new battery technology, with its ability to store more energy in a compact space, will redefine the capabilities of 5G and the world connected to it.”
