Recent Nokia Patent Reveals Foldable Battery Designs

Nokia Bendable Displays

Smartphone OEMs like Samsung and LG have already started making devices with curved displays. Recently, Samsung even promised to release fully foldable displays in 2015. To make a foldable mobile device, you need foldable battery technology. LG revealed their foldable battery tech few months back. In a recently revealed Nokia’s patent, Nokia’s design of foldable batter technology was revealed. The battery pack will be made of ‘foldable cells’ that can curve and bend with the shape of a phone. The same technology can be used to fill in battery between the free spaces available in small devices. This could lead to super-thin and foldable devices.

‘Even though the internal components are becoming smaller and smaller, batteries generally lag behind other technological advancements, consistently consuming a large portion of the portable electronic device.

‘In current portable electronic devices, to have a curved and aesthetically pleasing form factor, space is generally wasted between the battery and a case making the portable electronic device seem larger and a result may be less appealing,’

‘Additionally, there may also be wasted space between the internal components and the case and/or between certain internal components.’
