The new technology will make its first appearance in devices during the third quarter of 2020 on phones that use the company's Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus processors -- will also be able to take advantage of more than 100 watts of power to speedily refill depleted device batteries.
Most flagship phones have battery capacities ranging from 3,000mAh to 5,000mAh depending on the manufacturer, features and the size of the device. Apple's 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro has a roughly 3,000mAh battery while Samsung's 6.9-inch Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G has a 5,000mAh battery.
While the feature is starting with devices that have its flagship 800-series processors, the company expects it to trickle to down its more affordable 700 and 600-series chipsets over time. In addition to the faster charging, Qualcomm touts that the new format will be "up to 70 percent more efficient" than its Quick Charge 4 and also runs 10 degrees Celsius cooler (50 degrees Fahrenheit) when recharging with a cable.
