Samsung’s smartphones already offer a big advantage through removable
batteries that can free users from worrying about battery life as they
can just pop a new one in when needed, and now a report from the Korean
media indicates Samsung will also introduce solar-powered smartphones in
the future, with a bigger focus on the technology in 2014. The reason?, Apple has found a way to implement solar charging
in its future smartphones, and Samsung decided to do the same after
getting wind of Apple’s plans.
The report also mentions that Samsung’s main efforts are currently directed towards displays (probably why we’ll be seeing the return of AMOLED screen-toting tablets from the company), but it will also divert part of its resources
towards solar charging technology. Samsung has some experience in the
tech already, and now the technology might finally be ready to be
implemented into smartphones – with Samsung and Apple both dipping their
toes in solar charging, it could become the next big thing in
smartphone batteries, and considering the poor battery life we’ve all
grown tired of on our phones.
