5G promises to transform our cities, our industries, the media and more, but what will change on our smartphones?
Huawei is working on a graphene battery
But the commitment of 5G is probably not fun. From a technological point of view, the new standard poses many problems, primarily those of electricity consumption. Like 4G at the moment, the 5G is very greedy battery that can pose a small problem when autonomy is still too often the Achilles heel of smartphones. For James Zou, the reason why we can not consider the evolution to 5G without further technological improvements. "I think we can solve the problem of consumption with 5nm processors and new charging technologies "says the official, who takes the opportunity to confirm that the next generation of mobile chips at Huawei should burn 5 nm if everything goes well.
Still with the aim to solve this problem, the sales manager explains that the Honor Huawei group is indeed busy with graphene batteries, a technology that has been promising for several years. According to him, the only limitation to the use of such technology today "it's the costs"But the product is ripe for the future, a news that corresponds to what we have heard from Samsung a few weeks ago, and the Honor Magic 2 uses a graphene cooling system.
The fate of 5G is closely linked to other technical developments in the smartphones sector. What to consider this new technology other than through the prism is very vague the legal application or laboratory tests.
