800Wh/L Super Battery may be adopted in Chinese Ramos Smartphone
In the months leading up to 2015, significant research progress has been made by Chinese battery manufacturers with regard to Graphene Lithium-Ion and Silicon Anode batteries, allowing mobile phone manufacturers to test a new generation of batteries that feature higher energy density than those of previous generations.
According to industry insiders, Ramos, an aspiring smartphone manufacturer is set to release its first smartphone this year, is testing this new generation of smartphone batteries. The new generation of batteries boast an energy density of about 800Wh/L, a 40% increase over the 560Wh/L common to existing mobile phone batteries, pushing energy capacity to an impressive 18.4Wh (3.8V/4850mAh), 60% higher than the current standard of 3.8V/3000mAh. This presents significant improvements in stand-by time and battery life, as well as charging speed, safety, and other factors.
Ramos, established in 2001, is a professional manufacturer of tablet PCs. Ramos has entered into close cooperation with BYD, Intel, and Microsoft, and was Intel’s first partner in the tablet PC market. With many presidents and leaders within the company coming from BYD, Ramos also boasts a team with rich experience in production and marketing. Additionally, Ramos maintains close cooperation with many research institutes and technical teams.
According to consumer reports, tablet PCs produced by Ramos enjoy leading positions in terms of battery technology. Ramos’ 2014 i9s tablet PC has adopted battery technology provided by BYD, giving it a 30-50% increase in battery capacity when compared with a same-size tablet PC, and it has passed a gauntlet of consumer safety tests,
According to TrendForce’s most recent report, as of 2014, 6 out of 10 of the world’s top smartphone brands come from Chinese manufacturers as Chinese smartphone manufacturers become increasingly competitive in terms of R&D, supply chain management, online marketing, and effectively providing emerging markets with affordable, useful, and desirable products.
In addition to the 6 aforementioned top smartphone manufacturers (Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi, TCL, Coolpad, and ZTE) Chinese smartphone brand such as Meizu, VIVO, OPPO, Gionee, and OnePlus also perform notably well. At the same time, Chinese internet giants such as Alibaba (BABA), Baidu, 360, and Letv have also become increasingly involved in the mobile phone market.
According to industry analysts, against a backdrop of extreme competition and slowing growth in global shipments of smartphones, Chinese smartphone manufacturers and component suppliers will increase R&D investment in key technology such as CPUs, LCDs, cameras and batteries so as to achieve the goal of better functioning of specific components. This incredible improvement upon existing battery technology is surely just the first step toward a series of improvements and innovations from Chinese manufacturers.
The battery tested by Ramos is most likely one of BYD’s products, though this is not yet confirmed. We will continue to release updates as they come to us.
