Qualcomm unveiled new Quick Charge 4+ fast charging technologies, just a few months after the announcement of the fourth generation of Quick Charge 4.
The new generation will allow 15% faster, 30% higher, with a temperature of 3 degrees below the normal range, compared to the 4G, which charges the device for only five hours in just five minutes. But with Quick Charge 4+ technology, devices can charge up to five hours in a period of up to four minutes.
The first phone will support the new generation will be produced by the Chinese company ZTE, the phone Nubia Z17.
In addition to the previous technical specifications, Quick Charge 4+ provides two-channel charging at the same time, meaning that charging will be faster first, and battery temperature will not rise during charging because the chips will share the voltage.
In this technique, Qualcomm provided a feature in which the chip searches for low-temperature electrical circuits to be used, which in turn allows the pressure to be reduced by hot passages that, if heated, could explode and cause the battery to explode.
The company has also introduced techniques that allow to know the temperature of the charging port and the charger itself, so the company through the operating system can monitor these data to reduce the risk of explosion of batteries as well.
In September, Qualcomm unveiled the fourth generation of express shipping, but its list of supporting devices is very few and does not include phones like the Galaxy S8 or Xiaomi Mi 6, so the arrival of Quick Charge 4+ may be delayed.
