HONOR introduces the first silicon-carbon battery

Honor 60 Series

MWC 2023 event witnessed several announcements and product unveilings. HONOR announced three smartphones for the global launch. The devices include the Magic5, Magic5 Pro, and the Magic Vs. besides smartphones, the company announced that it has developed the first silicon-carbon battery with high energy density.

Between the hustles of the event, the announcement could not capture the required attention. For this reason, it is being discussed separately. Well, if we consider the smartphone industry, we come to know that each and every component of the smartphone is evolving at a rapid pace. Expect the battery segment. Given this perspective, the latest offering by Honor is promising, at least on paper.

The basic idea with this concept is that the battery has the capacity to offer a 12.8% higher energy density in contrast to lithium batteries. Let us understand this with an example the HONOR Magic5 Pro accompanies a 5,100mAh battery. If the device used a silicon-carbon battery, it would have the capacity to offer a 5,450mAh capacity, with a similar footprint.

In contrast, a standard lithium battery doesn’t have much to offer once the voltage drops to 3.5 volts. For this reason, silicon carbon battery is so significant. Since it has 240% more potential at 3.5V in comparison to a normal lithium battery. It offers a 12.8% improvement.

It may sound like that such an idea is possible only in theory. Since several ideas have been presented in the past. And it becomes difficult when it comes to anything like a smartphone battery. Well, you might be wrong this time. Since it appears that the Magic5 Pro in China already utilizes this battery.

Although, the company has not unveiled it on the stage. However, the Chinese model of the device holds a 5,450mAh battery on the inside. It has similar dimensions and specs to the global model. So, it could have the latest battery tech. Such assumptions mark that Honor has already worked out the new tech. it is no more a part of the test and trial phase. At the moment, it is unknown whether the global model holds the battery tech or not.
