    Not sure if good or bad. I'm thinking, great, extra battery capacity, Samsung are probably thinking WE CAN MAKE PHONES SO THIN THEY CAN'T EVEN SEE IT.

    Re: Samsung claims it can double Li-ion battery life using graphene

    I'm not confident that it's happening anytime soon. Graphene is the thing is the thing they want to replace silicon with too(I remember seeing projected figures like 1000ghz for graphene based tech) but its supposedly incredibly hard to mass produce.

    Interesting - applying graphene to the cathode has been tried before as far back as 2013 (doi:10.1038/ncomms2705), but they didn't see improvements of anywhere near double
