In June 2015, researchers at the SAIT (Samsung's Advanced Institute of Technology) found a way to prolong the life of the standard lithium-ion batteries by using a new silicon cathode material "coded with high-crystalline graphene". Recent talk around the web suggests that this discovery may find its way to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and grant it a 5-day battery

While the research is indeed impressive, and will hopefully be integrated in actual products in the future, it is important to say that we have no real indication that Samsung is close to commercializing their findings. Since the S7 is not scheduled for release until March 2016, there's still time for surprises...
