Qualcomm’s Quick Charge Features In Adapter Just Two Days After Launch; Take A Look Here
Qualcomm made a couple of big announcements lately. The US chipmaking giant officially detailed the Snapdragon 835, its next generation mobile processor. The 835 will be the first from Qualcomm to be manufactured on the 10nm node. It'll power nearly all of 2017's flagships. While technical details are scarce at the moment, the company's claiming that 10nm comes with its set of benefits. For starters, it decreases overall area by 30%, making for a much smaller chip. This, then translates into a 27% increase in performance and a 40% decrease in power consumption. The Snapdragon 835 also features Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4. It's another upgrade by the tech giant which will improve user experience. Today, we've managed to dig out one of the first chargers to utilize the technology. Take a look below for more.
First Adapter For Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4 Surfaces With Type-C Connectivity
Qualcomm claims that Quick Charge 4 will feature a lot of benefits over its predecessor. While manufacturers continue to struggle with battery life, charging speeds seem to present little problems for advancement. Quick Charge 4 will feature USB-C connectivity and therefore ensure smooth progression to the latest industry standard. It'll also be more 'smarter' than previous technologies, as your device will be able to calibrate its power requirements with the adapter.
Now, within days of its launch, an adapter which features Quick Charge 4 has surfaced straight from China. Developed by folks from the country's Shenzen province, the adapter hints at what you can expect from Quick Charge 4 in the upcoming future. There are few technical details which have surfaced with the image, apart from Quick Charge 4 being clearly visible at the device's side. Take a look at it below.
It looks rather bulky if you ask us, but we'd forgive the makers since its likely the first device to feature the tech. Qualcomm's made some great hits lately, particularly with the Snapdragon 821. The company's execution of Kryo cores effortlessly after the Snapdragon 810's throttling indicates good times ahead for all. Now, with the Snapdragon 835 and Quick Charge 4 we're looking at a strong start to 2017.
Aside from its name, process and Quick Charge 4, the company revealed little information for the Snapdragon 835. We're just glad that the announcement took place. After all, its very rare to see next year's products see such early mentions. We've still got a good month left until 2017 is officially with us, and even more time until next year's flagship smartphones see the light of day. Thoughts?
