Gone are the days when we used to plug in the chargers while going to sleep and set the device to charge overnight. There have been many frontrunners in the race to be the fastest charging smartphone technology in the world. The quick charge technologies are often brand proprietary.
The smartphone-chip maker Qualcomm has recently announced its upcoming Quick Charge 5 technology that can charge the smartphone astonishingly fast. It features speed like never before and is set to become a new milestone in smartphone charging tech. Qualcomm’s fast charging technology has been an underrated feature. People only talk about the processing speeds, the GPU, and the camera capabilities, but we often fail to appreciate the work that has been done to allow quick charge in these smartphone-chips.
In this world of chaos where everyone is occupied with different things, we don’t always have enough time to sit back and wait for hours for our smartphone to get charged. But the newest development from the company for quicker smartphone charging has not failed to excite us.
Here comes the latest release from Qualcomm, the new tech goes by the name “Quick Charge 5”. A post on the official website of Qualcomm teased about what the new technology is capable of doing.
