The latest version of Quick Charge supports fast 18W charging. Competing technologies, such as Huawei’s SuperCharge, offer fast loading of up to 40W.
The OPPO Super VOOC charging system supports up to 50W of fast charging and Meizu’s mCharge technology ensures fast charging of up to 55W.
According to Qualcomm, its next-generation fast charging technology will support fast charging up to 32W and 15W wireless charging.
The existing Quick Charge 4+ technology has a Engine Fast Charging system that divides the power line into two parts, rather than one. This allows the phone to escape from overheating during fast charging. In addition, this system is up to 15% faster and 30% more efficient than its predecessor. The Quick Charge 5.0 triple charging system allows the phone to support 32W fast charging without getting hot. In addition, it should have more advanced features than QC 4+.
It is speculated that Quick Charge 5.0 will come with the Snapdragon 855 (or Snapdragon 8150) chipset that can be made official by the end of this year. Exact specifications of the chipset are not available. What we do know is that it will be a 7nm SoC that will perform with the Apple A12 and the Kirin 980.
