It looks like a new technology is set to be introduced in phone displays soon, which could double battery life.
There are many things involved in battery power consumption in smartphones or any type of gadget in general, but one of the most important ones that has the most impact is the display. The display is usually the largest piece that sits on a gadget, and there may not be any other part at the moment that is so energy efficient.
You might think that processors also play an important role. In this regard, they play that which is true. But the point is that processors are now using highly optimized technologies, and their chip size is declining every year. As a result, their power consumption is reduced unless you want to play heavy games with the phone.
In fact, in normal and everyday use, the amount of battery power of your phone depends on one thing, and that is the display and The technology used in it. Samsung is currently using LTPO OLED technology, which is used in phones such as the iPhone 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max and Galaxy S21 series. This display is made of the Korean company's sixth generation production technology and has much lower energy consumption than LTPS screens that we see used in phones such as the iPhone 13. All of this is happening at a time when the refresh rate of these displays is also high, but they still have an incredible performance in controlling energy consumption.
But it seems that Samsung is working on new displays with technology. Has started more advanced. Apparently, this new display uses 8.5 generation production technology, and the type of panel used in it is in line with OLED expectations. A Korean researcher also said in an interview about the display that the technology used in it would be revolutionary.
But the question is, what is this technology at all and why are the expectations so high? There are many specialized terms and words in the explanation given by Professor Chang Hong Huang of Dankok University about this technology that are difficult for ordinary people to understand. But in a nutshell, the materials and technology used in the production of this display prevent excessive energy consumption and have a double effect on charge maintenance.
At present, OLED displays can not density Pixels have more than 550 pixels per inch, but it seems that thanks to this new technology, the density of pixels can even be increased to 10,000 per inch. This new technology also increases the lifespan of pixels and reduces their power consumption dramatically.
This is exactly why Professor Huang believed that the battery life of Samsung phones, or in general, Phones will double. The technology is still in the early stages of production, and the Huang startup team is raising funds for the next round of research so that it can implement its idea this time around as a concept product. It remains to be seen whether such an idea will succeed in the end.
