For a long time, graphene mobile batteries have been a concept for everyone. Graphene batteries are an emerging technology that allows for increased electrode density, faster cycle times, as well as possessing the ability to hold the charge longer thus improving the battery’s lifespan. Since every time there have been rumours and leaks suggesting and hinting that graphene mobile batteries technology are coming, at different time intervals, it has been proven wrong every time. But somehow the starting of this year, a San Francisco based tech company launch world’s lightest and first Graphene battery powered 5G smartphone. Many people don’t know about this brand and also they do not know that graphene battery-powered smartphones exist in the smartphone world, even before writing this article, I was one of those who had no idea about this. The San Francisco-based tech company that launched the world’s lightest and first graphene battery powered 5G smartphone is Appear Inc.

Creatively disrupting the normal is what inspires our designers and engineers to bring you new and amazing products that you’ll want to use all the time. They are functional, yet feel like fun distractions. The beauty and mystery draw you in, yet you didn’t even know you wanted them until they appeared before your eyes”. Appear Inc. created many innovative technologies such as smartphones, graphene fast-charge battery applications, buoyant and levitating speakers.
Appear Inc Partnered With Foxconn to meet growing demands
Foxconn is a well-known and trusted manufacturer for many popular brands like BlackBerry, iPhone, and Nokia, and consumer electronic products including iPad, PlayStation, and Xbox but especially known for iPhone manufacturers. Foxconn has the experience, expertise and facilities to meet Appear Inc high-quality standards, hence Appear has partnered with Foxconn India for its growing manufacturing needs.
First Phone powered by Graphene Battery
Appear Inc. launched this smartphone in January this year, which has a graphene battery. Appear powered to create innovative products using advanced material science. Its smartphone epitomizes this mindset. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm processors. Appear is known for its Graphene Super 20 Power Bank, which recharges fully in 20 minutes using the Appear’s proprietary Fast Charge battery technology, which has now been incorporated in a smartphone successfully. Graphene, similar to graphite, is composed purely of carbon. It has revolutionized many areas of manufacturing due to its unique properties. Though it is stronger than steel, graphene is lightweight and one of the most conductive materials. This allows graphene to act as a supercapacitor for Appear’s revolutionary Fast Charge Technology. Graphene-enhanced Li-ion batteries have longer lifespans, higher capacities and faster charging times while remaining flexible and light.
The smartphone is complete with Water Resilient Technology
Every year 11% of smartphones are damaged by water, that is 165 million phones per year or 452,000 per day. As consumers become more dependent on their smartphones, water protection is a vital feature added in the new Appear smartphone. This new smartphone is the perfect option for the eco-conscious consumer as building more resilient phones will also help reduce growing electronic waste.
Appear designed the Buoyant and Levitating Speakers
The water-resistant technology uses advanced material science, was first debuted by Appear in its Buoyant Speakers, proving the success of the company’s technology in pools across the world. However, the real show-stopper by Appear has been its levitating speakers. When powered, the speaker rises and hovers over the speaker box. The company can be deployed levitating technology across many industries such as home automation, sports and the automotive industry and countries. Appear has plans to license the technology across many industries and countries.
Appear Inc specifications
Now, we can see that the pictures show what appears to be in smartphones. A curved display with an under-display front camera. The front look like typically today’s smartphone. On the back is a triple rear camera setup. It seems like it has two versions one have dual-colour options and 48MP triple rear camera setup in a vertically way while the second has a 48MP quad rear camera setup in a horizontal way that are much familiar and reminiscent TCL phone design.
Appear is expecting high consumer demand, so the company has partnered with popular retailers like Amazon and one of the largest distributors in the MENA region -Sharaf DG and many more e-tailers. To ensure that its smartphones are available globally, the company will be working with 70+ distributors. It was expecting to be available in March 2021. But currently, it is still not available for sale, there is no price information and no full list of specifications.
