Where’s WALDIO? Innovative Tech Extends Smartphone Battery Life By 39 Percent
If a research team out of Seoul has its way, we could see some dramatic improvements to both performance and battery life in the future. The tech is called WALDIO, an interesting acronym that stands for "Write Ahead Logging Direct IO". Where's WALDIO? Under the hood, taking on the role of data handler.
WALDIO's creators claim that over time, the speed of smartphones can be improved by 14x (versus well-worn devices), while devices with a built-in battery could see improvements of up to 20x. Because of all the saved writes, battery life can be improved by upwards of 39%.
If WALDIO can do all that it says it can, and doesn't impact the integrity of our data at all, it looks like a good bet. Whether or not the market will pick it up is another story.
