The first graphene phone reportedly on the market!

Earlier this month, the first mass produced graphene-enhanced phone was rumoured to be near commercial sale by Chinese companies. Now, further details are available as it seems that the device is available on the company's website.

The phone, called the Galapad Settler, is said to use graphene for its touchscreen, as well as casing and battery. 30,000 pieces were made by Chinese graphene company Moxi together with Chinese device maker Galapad, with each device selling for $399 USD.

Graphene is allegedly used in the phone's 5.5-inch phone’s touchscreen, 3000-mAh battery and case. The phone runs off a 64-bit quadcore Snapdragon 410 processor along with 2GB RAM and has 16GB of internal storage. The device has a 8 megapixel camera and a 5MP camera on the front.

The companies claim that the touchscreens made with graphene are able to transmit more light and so can produce better colours and are more sensitive than conventional ones. The use of graphene in batteries raises the charge density by 10% and extends the overall battery life by 50%.
