Samsung’s always had a head start when it comes to the battery life of their smartphones. While iPhones are the general population’s phone of choice, Samsung has managed to stay in business and provide a sizable competition, being the second smartphone option for people from all over the world.
One of the main differences between Samsung and Apple is the fact that Samsung, aside from developing phones, computers and tablets, is also known for developing technology and small parts that can be sold and used by other companies, including Apple.
Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology recently announced that their latest battery will be able to charge faster than any of their previous batteries, an impressive development considering that Samsung’s fast charging ability was one of the main perks of the device. These batteries will completely charge devices in just 12 minutes. Their previous smartphone models were able to have full batteries with an hour of charge.
This new battery technology will not be only limited to phones; the company is planning on using it on electric cars and mobile devices, laptops and tablets. Samsung announced that these batteries will all have affordable prices but no one knows if the company is planning on sharing the technology with their competition, or on selling parts for them, like they’ve done in the past.

When it comes to Apple, the company just launched the iPhone X that, although beautiful and impressive, is worth 1000 dollars. We’ll have to wait and see if Samsung launches a phone that can compete with that price range.
