Samsung gives us an idea of what to expect from 2017’s mobile market

As a manufacturer of both smartphones and smartphone components, Samsung is in a better position than pretty much any company out there to influence and predict what the future of the mobile market will be like. With the announcement that it’s working on denser batteries and thinner camera sensors, which will allow smartphones to be far thinner and more efficient than they are now, the company has given us an idea of what to expect in 2017. 

Samsung has just announced its plans to develop “denser” batteries and thinner camera sensors that will supposedly make their way to smartphones by the year 2017. While that may seem quite far off, the wait will likely be worth it. If Samsung accomplishes what it wants to with these plans, smartphones and individual camera and battery components produced by the company will be much thinner and more efficient. Samsung’s current battery tech has an energy density of 700Wh/l (Watt-hours per liter), and it expects that number to increase to 750Wh/l by the end of 2016, and to 780Wh/l by the end of 2017. Of course, this means batteries with the same capacities will be much thinner with this increased energy density, allowing the company to produce thinner devices without the need to skimp on battery capacity. The voltage of the battery is also slated to get an increase, with the company hoping to reach a voltage of 4.40V in the next few months, and a voltage of 4.5 volts by 2017. Samsung is also working to improve its fast charging technology, and hopes for its batteries to charge up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes by the end of that year, as well.
