Alex Katouzian, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies said;

As mobile devices become more capable and feature rich, people tend to use them more. That’s why consumer demand and awareness for fast-charging solutions is now at an all-time high. Quick Charge 4 addresses that need by providing up to 50 percent battery charge in roughly 15 minutes or less, so you don’t have to spend all day chained to your charging cable.

Quick Charge 4 includes third generation INOV (Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage) which basically provides real-time thermal management. Qualcomm is also introducing two new power management ICs, the SMB1380, and the SMB1381, which process lower impedance giving out 95 percent peak efficiency, and advanced fast charging features.
