    Samsung Electronics has a battery development and manufacturing division, too, and it's called Samsung SDI. Batteries from Samsung SDI are used in Samsung's laptops, smartphones, tablets, and wearables. They are also used in electric vehicles from BMW and Fiat and will soon be used by Hyundai and Genesis. Now, the company is aiming to launch a completely new type of battery.

    Samsung SDI is planning to launch solid-state batteries by 2027. According to a report from KED Global, the company has formed a new team to commercialize its ASB (All-Solid-State Battery) technology, and it is being led by Go Joo-young, Vice President of the company's large-scale battery business division. The company is aiming to speed up the launch by collaborating with partners and clients.

    Samsung SDI Solid State Battery Structure

    Unlike conventional batteries that use a liquid electrolyte between anode and cathode to facilitate the flow of ions, solid-state batteries use solid materials. This reduces the risk of fire, improves the battery endurance, and increases energy density. Earlier this year, Samsung SDI started an ASB test production line at its Suwon research center in South Korea.

    Samsung SDI is aiming to launch all-solid-state batteries with an energy density of more than 900 Wh/L by using a sulfide-based technology. Such batteries will likely be launched for electric vehicles first and then for energy storage systems and electronics, such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets.

    Samsung also develops futuristic display technologies through a separate division called Samsung Display. Some of its newer technologies are displayed and explained in our video below.
