A website named Getinews reported The first mass produced graphene-enhanced phone. It is supposedly intended for a 30,000 piece production, and will contain graphene smartphone touch screen, battery and thermal films. The phone's core technology is provided by the Chongqing Institute of Technology and the Chinese Academy of green intelligent Ningbo Institute of Material Technology and Engineering.

According to reports, the graphene phone has a better touch performance and longer standby time and better thermal performance. While graphene-enhanced touchscreens are not unheard of, graphene batteries a little more of a stretch so it should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt.

In December 2013, the world's largest graphene production plant was declared operational by Ningno Morsh in China.
