New smartphones are being fitted with ever faster processors to help them power through the latest applications, but the flip side to using faster processors in our devices is the added strain it puts on our battery life.
Researchers at the University of Michigan computer science and engineering have been looking into the problem and developed a new subconscious mode for smartphones which could extend battery life in our devices by as much as 54 percent.
The new subconscious mode will also work with other WiFi-enabled mobile devices but is still just a proof of concept at the moment. But couldn’t you do with a increasing your battery life? I know I could.
The developers of the new subconscious mode, professor Kang Shin and doctoral student Xinyu Zhang will be presenting their research on Sept. 21 at the ACM International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking in Las Vegas.
