    News about the Galaxy S24 has been pouring in from left, right, and center. It was recently reported that the Galaxy S24 Ultra could offer fewer cameras and will pack a much faster GPU than the iPhone 15. The latest report hints that Samsung is bringing some car tech onboard to provide improved battery life with the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

    Samsung SDI, the department that develops and manufactures Li-Ion batteries, could be planning to apply a capacity increase technology used in their electric car cells and put it inside the Galaxy smartphones and tablets. This ‘stacking' method tightly stacks battery components like cathodes and anodes for better energy density.

    Samsung SDI is partnering with two Chinese companies for this new battery tech

    Also, stacking battery components will allow for higher battery capacity for Galaxy phones, according to a report by The Elec. Moreover, this battery technology could be implemented soon, allegedly with the Galaxy S24 Ultra that will debut next year. The Galaxy S23 Ultra packs a 5,000 mAh battery, to which Samsung could add 10% more capacity in the same footprint using the new electric cell technology.

    Besides, by using the stacking method for all batteries, Samsung SDI would give tough competition to its rival LG Energy, which also uses the same method. Two Korean companies are speculated to enter into an agreement with Samsung to develop stacked small cells. However, sources suggest that Samsung has gone ahead with two Chinese rivals for this joint venture.

    The South Korean battery giant, Samsung SDI, will develop the required equipment for stacking at its plant in Cheonan, South Korea. Reports confirm that the two Chinese companies are setting up offices in South Korea to have better communication with the Samsung SDI. Furthermore, Shenzhen Yinghe Tech, one of the two partners, has already supplied the stacking equipment to Samsung SDI after running a pilot line for the new production process at a factory in Tianjin.
