Intel has introduced its own version of its battery-enhancing chips, dubbed the “Alpine Ridge”, to replace Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7.
Alpine-Ridge has the advantage of being manufactured by Intel itself, and comes with a battery that can last up to eight days on a single charge.
The chip can store up to 12.7 hours of talk time, which is double the amount of time it takes to charge a typical iPhone or Android smartphone.
The Alpine Ridge also has a new design that allows the chip to be used as a smartphone charger.
It’s the latest example of Intel taking on the Galaxy S8 smartphone giants, which have had their own battery makers for years.
Intel’s Atom-based Atom processors have been powering some of the most popular smartphones in the world, and the company is expected to introduce its own chip based on the chips to replace its current flagship, the Galaxy Note 8.
Alteplier, which will be manufactured by the same Taiwanese company that makes Intel’s Cortex-A53 chips, has a smaller battery capacity of around 1.8-1.9 hours of charge.
Intel says the chip can be used for both a phone charger and a laptop charger, which it says makes it ideal for people who don’t need to carry around bulky chargers or batteries.
Intel is also expected to release its own Snapdragon 835 chip based in part on the Alpine Ridge, which Intel says will offer up to 10 hours of battery life.
