Qualcomm confirms all smartphones supporting Quick Charge 4.0 technology

Qualcomm confirms all smartphones supporting Quick Charge 4.0 technology
Each top-tier mobile chipset launched by Qualcomm comes with Quick Charge. The technology has evolved throughout the years, so the latest smartphones equipped with Qualcomm's newest chipsets should support Quick Charge 4.0/4.0+.

To make it easier for consumers who want the latest quick charge technology in their smartphones, Qualcomm published the list of all devices compatible with Quick Charge 4.0/4.0+. In case you're expecting the list to contain at least several devices, you'll be completely disappointed.

There's only one device that Qualcomm confirmed it's fully compatible with its Quick Charge 4.0/4.0+ technology and not even that one isn't a mainstream phone. If you haven't guessed it by now, yes, it's the Razer Phone, the only smartphone that supports Qualcomm's latest quick charge technology.

Of course, more devices could be added by the end of the year, such as the LG G7, which is supposed to include Quick Charge 4.0 support. Also, the ZTE Nubia Z17 seems to have been overlooked by Qualcomm and for some reason hasn't been included in the list, even though it does support the new quick charge technology.

Samsung supports USB power delivery since the S8, which is going to be the standard anyway. Even Quick Charge 4.0 from qualcomm supports that. Samsung's charging solution isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Yes, the quick charge 2.0 seems horrible, but it's still pretty fast and charges within a few minutes of even Oneplus's dash charge.

Yet their charging adapter doesn't deliver USB PD charging speeds. Why? IDK. It doesn't matter whether the phone supports it or not cuz their inbox charger delivers only QC 2.0 speeds. That's pathetic!!

you cant even compared qc2.0 to dash charge, dash charge is the fastest charging i have ever seen. My phone history FYI Note 4 > OP3T > currently P10 plus Dash > Huawei FCP > QC3.0 > QC 2.0 Main issue of QC 2.0 is during charging the phone just heat up terribly.

It is hard to say yes or no. Because the S8 is on the QC2 list, but the S9 is in the list of phones, but not the list of QC2, QC3, or QC4. Flawed list for sure.

While I do agree Samsung still uses QC2.0 fortunately they also support USB PD and besides with 3000mAh and 3500mAh QC 2.0 wouldnt be much of problem.

I'm not trying to criticize anything but... Quick charge rarely prove to be useful for me. I almost always wireless rechage my phone. And it may not be as fast as quick charge, not even close, but its surely a LOT more useful for me. So... No biggie. G'Day!

The use of wireless recharge is a conflict to your username of 'GreenMan' because the efficiency of 'wireless charging' is so much poorer than that of "quick charging". Therefore, if you feel having a responsibility to the green world, please re-consider your choice.

WellI, I ride an old 2-Stroke motorcycle (Yamaha RD350) that gets MPG comparable to a mid-size SUV and whose exhaust pipe smokes like a chimney so... I think I should stop riding that thing first! In any case , industries are the worst offenders when it comes to pollution. Civilians are responsible for only a fraction of pollution. Visit your nearest industrial area for more insight! G'Day!

The best thing you can do to fight pollution is moving to a plant based diet

Efficiency of wireless charging is always poorer than that of "quick charging". This is governed by Physics. In fact, the latest USB PD (while QC4.0/4.0+ are proprietary technologies) improves over the older technologies. Therefore, anyone feeling the responsibility to the green world should probably consider going back to wired charging.

Some of those tech youtubers always claim that the Razer Phone is the first phone ever to support QC 4.0+. I always wanted to remind them that the title goes to the Zte Nubia Z17.

you can't even buy a QC 4 charger. QC 4 has been out for almost 2 years I believe. I think one finally got certified in China a couple months ago but its still not for sale.

Quite surprised that Samsung still uses a significantly older form of QC. Samsung seems like the kind of manufacturer that embraces newer technologies, so it's odd. Any idea why thay don't use the newer QC3 or QC4?
