New High Capacity Battery Technology is on the way

new-battery-technologyOne of the holy grails of battery development is the creation of a cost-effective, efficient, non-volatile electrolyte material, without the explosive risks associated with current technologies. And researchers at Tufts University may have solved the riddle.

Mike Zimmerman, a Material Science Professor and former plastics engineer, and his team have created a solid, plastic electrolyte material that is durable, lightweight and already being manufactured in Zimmerman’s own small facility. In addition to teaching, he runs a side company called Ionic Materials, which has just shown off its solid electrolyte material to the press for the first time.  An upcoming NOVA special called “Search for the Superbattery” is set to premieres this Wednesday night at 9 p.m. on PBS, during which Zimmerman demos one the batteries.

Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 leaks

Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2Xiaomi launched the Redmi Pro around July last year as its first smartphone with a dual camera setup. Apart from the dual cameras, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro comes with a far more premium build, using a brushed metal body as well as OLED display. Now, a leaked product poster is suggesting Xiaomi has got a Redmi Pro 2 in the works.

The Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 drops the dual camera but its single digital eye on the back uses a better sensor – the 12MP Sony IMX 362. This is a 1/2.55” sensor with large 1.4µm pixels and Dual Pixel autofocus. That’s a good deal better than the 1µm pixels that the Mi Note and Mi Mix got. (more…)

LG G6 prototype leaks

LG G61We are now less than one month away from the official announcement of the LG G6 at MWC in Barcelona. And as we get closer to the February 26 event, more and more leaks about the G6 are starting to pop up. Today a few images have been outed showing what looks to be a G6 prototype of some sort. Its back, however, is in a less than finished state, as you can see.

So this is obviously not going to be what the G6’s back ends up looking like, in terms of material choices. The phone should have a metal unibody construction, and what’s portrayed here has a different back shell used for testing. However, the placement of the dual rear camera and fingerprint sensor looks accurate based on what we’ve seen from leaked renders before. (more…)

Honor 8 Lite leaks

Honor 8 LiteIf you were at least a little bit baffled by Huawei’s recent move of introducing the P8 Lite (2017), using the name of the P8lite from 2015 instead of the P9 lite from last year as a base for the new model, get ready for some more weirdness. First off, let’s mention that the P8 Lite (2017) may actually end up being sold as the P9 Lite (2017) in some countries. Confused yet?

Well, you’re going to be even more confused by the newly leaked Honor 8 Lite. This is shown in the images below inside a case. You may have noticed something familiar about it though – yes, it looks exactly like the aforementioned P8 Lite (2017). (more…)
