The batteries of our smartphones never live up-to our expectations and the problem becomes even worse when any easy way to recharge the battery is not available.
To offset this, you carry a backup battery or a power bank. In case of backup battery, you have to switch off your Smartphone for replacing the discharged one. This is followed by an uneasiness – If you are playing a game or drafting an email then all of the progress will be lost.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if in such scenarios, you can replace battery of your Smartphone without switching it off?
A patent application filed by Samsung indicates that Samsung is coming up with a smart phone that doesn’t get shut down when its battery is removed. So technically you can use your Android smartphone without battery.
Lets find out how Samsung is doing this
According to the patent application, the smartphone will consist of two batteries; the main battery and the supplementary battery.
It’s the main battery that recharges the supplementary battery and you don’t have to recharge it separately. The supplementary battery will be present inside the smart phone itself and you won’t be able to remove it.
There will be a sensor attached to the battery cover that will sense removal of battery cover and will send the information to the smartphone processor. The processor in turn, will switch the power supply from main battery to the supplementary battery and your smartphone will keep working.
After switching the power supply to supplementary battery, the CPU sends phone to sleep mode so that it can retain it state rather than losing all the data due to abrupt shutdown.
