Following the news on Huawei's Mate 20 X phone that will use “graphene film cooling technology” for heat management purposes, we have now found out that the graphene producer for this Huawei phone will be China-based The Sixth Element Materials.

Graphene products for the Huawei Mate 20 X to be supplied by The Sixth Element Materials in large quantities image

The Sixth Element Materials will be providing the graphene product, out of the Company's current 260 tons/year capacity. However, as Huawei graphene requirements is estimated to take up almost all of TSEM's available capacity, TSEM is working on increasing its capacity to 1000 tons/year, and intends to be on stream around the beginning 2020 (but the dates are not yet finalized).

This seems to be one of the largest, if not the largest, commercial graphene supply deal ever, and it is certainly exciting news. We hope that this is only the beginning of such commercial graphene use.
