Qualcomm introduced its next generation of fast charging technology called Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. The third generation Quick Charge technology is first of its kind that help consumers to recharge the battery their smartphone at a very faster pace.
The Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 was launched along side its latest smartphone processors including Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon 620, Snapdragon 618, Snapdragon 617 and Snapdragon 430. The Quick Charge 3.0 will come with the company's latest processors.
Here are some of the interesting features of the you need to know about the Qualcomm's latest Quick Charge 3.0. Take a look at the slider below to know more.
The Quick Charge 3.0 is the first of its kind to employ (INOV) Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage.
The INOV technology employs a new algorithm developed by Qualcomm, designed to allow portable devices the ability to determine what power level to request at any point in time for optimum power transfer, while maximizing efficiency.
The Quick Charge 3.0 can charge a typical phone from zero to 80 percent in about 35 minutes compared to conventional mobile devices without Quick Charge that may typically require almost an hour and a half.
Efficient Than Quick Charge 2.0
With, INOV and other advancements, Quick Charge 3.0 is designed to be up to 38 percent more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0, while also implementing additional steps to help protect battery cycle life.
The new Quick Charge 3.0 helps to improve fast charging up to 27 percent or reduces power dissipation by up to 45 percent when compared to Quick Charge 2.0.
Quick Charge 2.0 offers four charging voltages at 5V, 9V, 12V and 20V. While, the Quick Charge 3.0 provides flexibility with 200mV increments from 3.6V to 20V.
Quick Charge 3.0 also maintains forward and backward compatibility with previous versions of Quick Charge as well as with connectors, including USB Type-C, as well as the same ultra-fast charging speed.
Low Cost Option
Quick Charge 3.0 is implemented with minimal changes to current designs, offering OEMs a low cost option for fast battery charging.
