High-power fast charging technologies used in the flagship smartphone models will soon become available to mid-range devices. The new Quick Charge3+ standard with high output power will allow owners of more affordable gadgets to significantly reduce the time to recharge their devices.
The company's first processors to receive support for the new technology will be the Snapdragon 765 and 765G, and the first commercial device will be the Xiaomi Mi10 Lite Zoom. It is noteworthy that the smartphone will be simultaneously compatible with QC 3+ and QC 4+.
According to the vendor, Quick Charge 3+ allows you to charge your smartphone from 0% to 50% in about 15 minutes - 35% faster than previous generations. Although the maximum output power of the standard is an impressive 60 W, the stated temperature of the battery during charging is 9 degrees lower than when using the manufacturer's early technologies.
The key difference from Quick Charge 4+ will be the ability to quickly charge using the available USB Type-A port. According to the specification, the technology will be compatible with solutions based on USB Type-C, as well as with any power supplies that support scalable voltage in 20 mV increments. In addition, the company said that support for Quick Charge 3+ will also be received by the upcoming mobile platforms of the Snapdragon line, which will be introduced in 2020.
