Snapdragon 830 to feature Quick Charge 4.0 support, up to 28W charging

Snapdragon 830 to feature Quick Charge 4.0 support, up to 28W charging
Citing an anonymous accessory manufacturer, tech site fudzilla reports that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipset will support fast charging speeds of up to 28W, thanks to the Quick Charge 4.0 technology. Reportedly, the new charger will support configurations of up to 5V/4.7A~5.6A, 9V/4A.

This means Qualcomm has found a way to bring more power to the battery in Snapdragon 830-powered devices without damaging the cell. Indeed, the so-called Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage (INOV) technology is supposedly able to identify the exact amounts of power the battery can take at any given moment, lowering the energy to prevent overheating when needed.

Smartphones that support Quick Charge 4.0 technology should hit the market in the first quarter of 2017, or as soon as Snapdragon 830-powered devices are introduced by manufacturers partnering with Qualcomm.

This will lower the capacity of batteries ever better ....

Moto Z Force uses a USB-C and comes with a 27W charger. It was great. Charged from 35% to 65% in about 20 mins of a charge. I use to plug it in before a shower when it was below 40%, and about 20 mins later, it would be above 60%. Can't beat that kind of charging. It has a 3500 mAh, and to get those percentages on that sized battery, was amazing.

So, what kind of cores does SD830 will have...?

I'm expecting an Octa Core Kyro configuration with two Quad-Core clusters built on the teeny veeny 10nm architecture...

Currently, The 820 & 821 have 2 Dual-Core clusters with different clock frequencies... And I don't know whether they can work 'together' or not...! Anyone more tech savvy than me care to fill me on the subject...? Thanks in advance...!

Anyhow, I wouldn't mind a bigLITTLE configuration of Kyro with Cortex's highly energy efficient A-35... Or perhaps the good ol' A53s...? These Kyros, though powerful, are quite the battery hog...!

Oh well...

G'Day!

Tyrion the wise had an argument with me a few months ago on some article. There I proved him wrong and said to him, "Mr. tyrion, u r not so-wise". He didn't reply back and I got to know from some of the peeps here that his account was banned or blocked. At that time I heard some praising about him on phonearena and came to know how popular he was. However, praised so much, and losing to me, huh!! Doesn't seem applaudable. As I am not a tech genius.....

Hello,

They work together just like octocore do.

Yes, they do work together. You mention big.LITTLE so you're not new to the term, just google up the definition and inner workings.

Except Google was just talking about banning third party charging methods like Quick Charge. It'd be a shame because the QC 3.0 on my Axon 7 is amazing.

Nope they dont you twisting fact.

they recommend not to ( strongly )
Then they ask thats ALL android phone support the standard usb type C charging as well so they are fully compatible with all usb type c charger.

Big difference.

Strange move if Google is planning on banning Quick Charge options not based on USB-C pd in Android 8 and later

Quick charge this and that. How about some battery tech? Safe tech that is.

my lg g5 never get warm when quick charge 3.0 charging.

so its pretty safe if you use quality battery made for it not cheap battery like some OEM use.

Also waterproofing might not be good as its keep all the heat inside.
