Fast Charging is becoming the norm in today’s smartphone. Every manufacturer offers some sort of fast charging. Going with the trend Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 will support 100W+ fast charging.
When we look at the fast charging technology, Chinese OEMs are taking the lead over the other manufacturers. Right now Oppo provides the fastest charging for a commercial phone which is 65W.
Oppo and other Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi and Vivo are also working on the 120W or 125W fast charging.
Qualcomm has launched its own proprietary Quick charge 5 that offers support of 100W+ fast charging. For mid-range or affordable devices, Qualcomm already introduces quick charge 3 this year. While the smartphones already have the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 since 2017.
Qualcomm states that this charging technology is the fastest charging commercially available for the devices.
“Quick Charge 5 enables charging speeds of up to 0-50 in five minutes (for a 4500mAh battery), with 100W+ charging power with our new Dual Charge Technology.”
Dual Charge Technology:
This new technology will also provide Dual charge technology like other manufacturers offers. This means this technology will divide battery into two halves and charge each of them separately. Each part of the battery will top up with 45W or 50W, according to Qualcomm.
Fast and Safe:
Qualcomm announces that this innovation of fast charging is 70% more efficient than the quick charge 4+. It is also 10 times faster than the quick charge 1.0. Additionally, it is also 10°C cooler than the previous launched quick charge 4 and 4+.
The silicon manufacturer also adds a battery saver algorithm which improves the battery life of the devices. It also uses Qualcomm smart identification which identifies adapter capabilities to increase the battery life.
XDA Developers dig out further and revealed that smart identification will identify the capabilities of the power source. Then it will automatically adjust the charging speed relatively maintaining the power source which is advertised. Going with the mentioned power source is not the optimal solution.
At the moment this charging solution is only available for the flagship silicon snapdragon 865 and 865 plus. Other than the flagship SoC, mid-range SoC are not supported by this technology. However, it is expected that the first device which will be supported by this technology will be unveiled by the end of this year.
