Nubia Z17 may be the first to support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0+, but you won't be able to use it

6

Qualcomm announced an enhanced version of its quick charge technology last week and confirmed the first smartphone to feature Quick Charge 4.0+ is the Nubia Z17, a high-end smartphone recently launched in China.

Unfortunately, it turns out that Quick Charge 4.0+ won't be usable with the Nubia Z17, at least at first. The Chinese company confirmed that its top tier smartphone comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 charger in the retail box, which doesn't support the new technology.

Although the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset inside the Nubia Z17 has Quick Charge 4.0+ support, it looks like there are no chargers available for the new technology.

According to Qualcomm, Quick Charge 4.0+ is an improved version of the previous technology, and it's supposed to allow a smartphone to go from empty to 50% in just 15 minutes.

Also, the new quick charge technology comes with enhanced Dual Charge functionality, Intelligent Thermal Balancing, and advanced safety features. All these improvements have been explained in our original story about Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0+ technology, so make sure you check it out for more details.

As far as the Nubia Z17 goes, there's no telling whether or not the Chinese company will eventually provide buyers with additional chargers compatible with Qualcomm's new Quick Charge 4.0+ technology.
