The leaker @IceUniverse (well known for his early information on Samsung devices) published recently on Twitter that the rumors about the upcoming high-end Huawei, the P40, coming to market with graphene battery are possibly fake news.
According to his post, “this is a technology that is currently impossible [to perform commercially on a large scale]”, contrary to what Huawei France tweeted.
This is a technology that is currently impossible.

In fact, rumors about a graphene drum seem to have originated from a source in India (Yash Raj Chaudhary), who tweeted about it on December 8th.
The post may ultimately have been the source of all this confusion, which has misled a number of people, including the head of Huawei’s profile management in France.
Huawei P40 Pro can have 50W fast charging and 5,500 mAh graphene battery
The Huawei P40 Pro smartphone, like its most basic version, does not have much information about the release date, leaving open that such an event could be held by the Chinese giant during the first quarter of 2020, whether it encompassing major events such as CES and MWC, or doing something more isolated so that the devices get full attention.
Despite this, there are already details about the specifications being shared with the public, even if they are just leaks and rumors, creating high expectations for what the manufacturer can deliver on the top 2020 handset.
In recent hours leaked information that says the P40 Pro phone can count on a battery of 5,500 mAh and fast charging of 50W. However, what really caught the eye was that this configuration was the result of a change in the internal material used in the battery, replacing lithium with graphene.
For those who do not know, graphene is a material that has been tried by mobile phone manufacturers in their prototypes in order to create an even more attractive alternative for the public and even justify the high prices applied in launches.
It is known that this type of compound was previously used in the automotive industry, but was eventually dismissed for not providing as much autonomy as needed to make a car run for hours without the need for recharging. However, new technologies have been developed and now this problem has been solved, at least to be effective on smartphones.
Some points may be crucial for Huawei to use graphene battery on its top of the line, such as the possibility of amplifying the capacity, the time taken for a full charge, which can be 45 minutes to reach 100%, as well as its life, causing less equipment to be disposed of and causing environmental pollution.
Together with this battery, the fast charging of 50W will allow this recharging process to take even less time, something that will greatly please users. Although the information does not yet contain sufficient details to confirm it, the news would be extremely attractive to the public.
