Quick Charge 5 is expected to be added to smartphones over the next few months.
Recently, Qualcomm announced the company’s next-generation charging standard, ‘Quick Charge 5’. It aims to take on the super-fast charging solutions lately introduced by the Chinese brands, including Oppo, iQOO, and Realme.
The new Quick Charge 5 technology can charge devices in just a few minutes. It is a significant jump from the previous Quick Charge 4, ensuring charging speeds of over 100 Watts while maintaining the battery at a cooler 10 degrees Celsius. Quick Charge 5 is expected to be added to smartphones over the next few months.
In Qualcomm’s testing, the new charging solution powered up a 4,500-mAh battery from zero to 50% in 5 minutes. Moreover, you would be able to get a full charge in around 15 minutes. The company also claims the Quick Charge 5 is 70% more efficient than the previous model.
The Vice President of Qualcomm Technologies, Ev Roach, said, “Quick Charge 5 is our fastest and most versatile charging solution. It will enable customers to enjoy their devices for longer periods, without worrying about the time required to recharge. We are proud to grow our technology portfolio and make accessible 100W+ charging a commercial reality.”
Besides, Quick Charge 5.0 is compatible with Quick Charge 2 and the latest Quick Charge standards.
The new charging standard is supported by the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus. However, other manufacturers like OEMs will have to implement the tech on their phones before devices can take advantage of it.
