Beijing: Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced new battery tech for its handsets. The new battery technology promises a 10 per cent increase in capacity for the same given volume with an increase in electrode silicon content and improved packaging technology which shrinks as well as bends the control circuits to sit flush with the top of the battery, reports AndroidPolice. Xiaomi says its new battery tech will be mass-produced in the second half of 2022. With this tech, a phone with a 4,000mAh battery might be able to squeeze 4,400mAh into the same physical space in the future. The battery is also equipped with a special 'fuel gauge' chip. It makes use of self-developed algorithms and analyses underlying data to offer enhanced safety.
