Samsung has revealed its plans to launch a range of laptops with battery-powered storage as soon it releases its first laptop in the US.
The South Korean technology giant is aiming to offer a range between 2,500 and 2,600 units of its battery-based laptop range by the end of this year, the latest of which will be called the GS8000, according to Reuters.
The company is also aiming to start selling laptop batteries as early as next summer.
“We believe we can offer a very good battery-life on the GS 8000, which will enable us to make a large dent in the laptop battery market,” a Samsung executive told Reuters.
“In the long term, we will also have a lot of other products coming out.”
Samsung has been working with lithium batteries since 2013, when it introduced the Galaxy Note8.
The company is currently in talks with LG and Samsung to produce a range, which would include the Galaxy A9, A10 and A12.
Samsung is already planning to launch its first tablet with the new battery technology, the Galaxy S8.
The GS8000 will feature a 5,000mAh battery and it will be available in a range from 1,200 to 2,000 euros ($1,100 to $1,200), according to the company.
The battery technology used in the GS-8000 is already in use in a variety of devices, including the Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy S9 and the LG G5.
