Karbonn invests $5 million on R&D for slim batteries with massive capacity
Karbonn is in fact the second largest indigenous smartphone maker in India, and at such the third largest generally (both foreign and local brands combined).
The company’s chairman, Sudhir Hasija, said he found out that smartphone batteries naturally drain out fast, and at such a drastic change was needed. And that’s why his company is investing nearly $5,000,000 in Japan to see that a smartphone battery that will be 50% thinner and twice powerful than current batteries, will be created.
“We want to really develop some hardware design capabilities,” Hasija said. “For instance, we’re exploring a new alloy which could give us the same sturdiness of steel but is lighter.” He added that the battery will be exclusively used for Karbonn phones.
Hasija isn’t far from the truth concerning smartphone batteries. A full charge on most smartphones usually don’t last a full 24-hour cycle from average making of calls and use of the Internet. People had long resorted to power banks, spare batteries and extended batteries.
