The Japanese company Kyocera unveiled at MWC prototype smartphone that can get energy from the sun’s rays. At the same time serves as a photocell device screen – it works as a solar battery.
The display is a structure and several layers, one of which is transparent photovoltaic material Wysips Crystal, allowing to convert solar energy into electrical energy without any problems. The productivity of the material is approximately 5 mW / cm2, and the thickness – 0.1 mm.
According to the developers, the screen does not generate this amount of energy, which is enough to fully charge the phone battery. However, the partial charge replenishment is possible in a place where many solar energies.
