Qualcomm shows Quick Charge 3.0 technology

The famous smartphone SoC maker Qualcomm has announced the new Quick Charge 3.0 technology that, as the name suggests, allows users to charge their smartphones very quickly. The new technology is supported by the Snapdragon 820, 620, 618, 617 and 430 SoCs as of now.

Qualcomm says the new technology is four times faster than regular charging solutions and 38 per cent faster than Quick Charge 2.0. Quick Charge 3.0 employs Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage (INOV), an algorithm which allows your portable device to determine what power level to request at any point in time, enabling optimum power transfer while maximizing efficiency. It also supports wider voltage options, allowing a mobile device to dynamically adjust to the ideal voltage level supported by that specific device. Specifically, Quick Charge 3.0 offers a more granular range of voltages: 200 mV increments, from 3.6V to 20V. That way phones can target one of dozens of power levels.

Unfortunately wide availability is expected next year but Quick Charge 3.0 is definitely a step in the right direction.
