The high demand for battery capacity in devices made OEM’s to insert a bigger battery, but the bigger battery takes more time to charge and people have a scarcity of time. So, to overcome this comes Fast charging, which Qualcomm with Quick Charge technology has excelled in.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 / 4.0+
Fast charging has become standard among all mid-range and high-end smartphones. To keep the saga going, Qualcomm has upgraded to Quick Charge 4.0. Which means smartphones can reach up to 50% of battery charge in just 15 minutes of charging.
And also 5 minutes of charging can add your device with up to 5 hours of talk time. There is only a device which has this piece of hardware in it. Do note some are set to have this down the line this year. Well, here is the list;
Yes, there is only one device to feature Quick Charge 4.0, at least as of now. The fact that Nubia Z17 is not included in the list is a bit confusing, especially when the sub-brand of ZTE has confirmed that the phone supports Quick Charge 4 at the launch.
Of course, more devices could be added by the end of the year, such as the LG G7, which is supposed to include Quick Charge 4.0 support. You can access the page on the official site at the link (click here).
