Along with its revolutionary Snapdragon 835 processor, Qualcomm has made yet another remarkable release: Quick Charge 4. The company claims that this technology speeds up the charging process and maximizes power efficiency by a substantial 20%. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 technology will be available with its next generation processor, expected to be released in the first half of 2017.
Given the escalating pace of battery technology modernization, the advancement in hardware mechanism is somehow failing to catch up, resulting in a severely limited power efficiency of mobile devices. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 is specifically intended to tackle this predicament by substantially boosting the battery power.
It is a universal fact that fast charging is the most looked for feature in smartphones. In fact, a recent study conducted by market research firm Sino-MR found that fast charging influences 60% of users when buying their next smartphone.
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 is densely packed with Qualcomm Technologies’ modern fast charging mechanism to deliver a higher efficiency than prior generations. Quick Charge 4, as claimed by the company, is engineered to lengthen a smartphone’s battery life by five or more hours with only five minutes of charging. Comparatively with previous releases, Quick Charge 4 is up to 20% faster, or 30% more efficient, and is up to 5° C cooler while charging.
You can estimate the tool’s market value by the fact that it is the number 1 fast charging method based on the number of devices and accessories commercially available. There are over 100 mobile devices and over 300 gadgets, comprising of the Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 technology.
Moreover, Quick Charge 4 features the third release of INOV (Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage), that is a distinct power management algorithm designed by Qualcomm Technologies specifically for their usage. The INOV comes with real-time thermal management, a latest addition which is apparently also the tech industry’s foremost. It is created to improve charging optimization by automatically determining and selecting the optimal power transfer level for a given thermal condition.
Summing up, we believe that Qualcomm’s latest state-of-art charging technology is the robust ecosystem that consumers had been waiting for to get more variety, accessibility, and better pricing than other fast-charging solutions.
