Appear has partnered with Foxconn India for its growing manufacturing needs as Foxconn has the experience, expertise, and facilities to meet Appear’s high-quality standards.
The Phone Features Graphene Fast-Charge Battery
Appear, known to create innovative products using advanced material science, has shown its caliber with this smartphone powered by Qualcomm processors. The Graphene Super 20 Power Bank by Appear, recharges fully in 20 minutes using the company’s proprietary Fast Charge battery technology, which has now been incorporated in a smartphone successfully.
Graphene, similar to graphite, has revolutionized many areas of manufacturing due to its unique properties, it is composed purely of carbon. Graphene is lightweight and one of the most conductive materials even though it is stronger than steel. This makes it the correct material to act as a supercapacitor for Appear’s revolutionary Fast Charge Technology. It is a known fact in the technology industry that graphene-enhanced Li-ion batteries have longer lifespans and faster charging times.
The Smartphone Is Complete With Water Resilient Technology
A mind-boggling stat about the enmity between water and smartphones is that 11% of smartphones are damaged by water, every year, that is 165 million phones per year or 452,000 per day! As consumers become more dependent on their smartphones, water protection is a necessary 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 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 up and hovers over the speaker box. The company has plans to license the technology across many industries and countries.
