Quick Charge 4.0 Technology, When Will it Come to Smartphones?

Qualcomm has unveiled its upcoming new high-end
system-on-a-chip Snapdragon 835 mobile processor, with Samsung’s 10-nanometer
(nm) FinFET process technology. Not just that but Quick Charge 4.0 has equally
been announced.

The new Quick Charge 4.0 (QC4) technology allows for up to
20% faster charging speed and 30% higher efficiency, and – best of all – it is
now compatible with the soon-to-be-ubiquitous USB Type-C and USB Power Delivery
(USB-PD) specifications.
Comparing the original Quick Charge technology with the
latest, the latest QC4 brings a 2.5 times improvement, while also adding
important safeguards to protect battery health: on board are over-voltage,
over-current, and four levels of over-temperature protection that include the
chassis itself, the battery and control of the temperature of the circuitry.
Another thing that is embedded in Quick Charge 4.0 is smart
detection of the type and quality of the charging cable, a key step to
providing adequate power to the battery and not overloading the circuits.
Qualcomm has updated its Battery Saver Technologies as
well, using stepwise charging to ensure a phone’s battery retains at least 80%
of its original charge capacity after 500 charge cycles.
The power management integrated circuits supporting the new standard
will be available to manufacturers by the end of 2016, while actual
smartphones with the new tech are expected to ship in the first half of
2017.
…and this is Qualcomm slogan for the latest quick charge 4
technology; 5 minutes of charging give you 5 hours of additional time to use
your phone.
Atleast, after all those exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices, we
are happy to see proper measures against future battery issues.
