According to Qualcomm, the company is working on boosting both wired and wireless charging standards next year to save more time.
Because it will take forever and a day to charge. Actually, even if it's a legit charger that properly fast charges according to USB rules, it may not work.
The CEO of the company is looking for faster, more efficient and non-destructive ways to charge his phones. Until then, it's business as usual.
SuperCharge beat out Google and Apple's simpler systems as well as other adapter-based systems like OnePlus's Dash Charge and Motorola's Turbo Charge.
It's as fast as the rumors have envisioned and their shape looks just as rounded, too. And for many iPhone owners, charging isn't the best as it can be.
A Rosenblatt analyst also has words about some charging components coming from different places and being more powerful than ever before.
The company said that it was not able to get a trademark on the term in Europe as it conflicted with terms associated with Bragi and Amazon.
Previously, designs have popped up for American plugs with USB-C connectors. All together, this will make charging speeds of up to more than three times faster than the current adapter possible.
That might not sound like anything to you at the moment, but it actually means that fast-charging abilities won't be a privilege of the few.
Sure, you can listen to music with a standard pair of cans AND charge your phone at the same time, but you can't charge it quickly nor transfer data to your phone.
More importantly, when the phone tells you that it's "charging rapidly" in cold temperatures, it just isn't. And that just won't do.
On this week's show: a smartphone-laptop hybrid from Razer could come to market as a show of the company's newfound dedication to mobile. Plus, is LG going to be releasing a phone this year?
The demonstration video was initially released in 2015 in conjunction with a symposium on batteries at the time. It has been repurposed for use on Huawei's YouTube channel today.
An anonymous employee at one of Samsung's Chinese factories claims that the Galaxy S9 will have an increase in battery capacity, just a minor one.
A 7.5W wireless charge session will generate 20 perccent more power than a 5W charge. A 12W wire will get just under double a 5W charge can to an iPhone X.
Currently limited to 5W speeds, wireless charging capabilities on the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus will soon get a decent boost to 7.5 watts with iOS 11.2.
OnePlus is obviously not opposed to jump on the wireless charging bandwagon down the line, but for the time being, Dash Charge is considered way better.
It's about 30 percent faster than regular Qi wireless charging rates and LG claims it to be the first phone that supports it.
If you have a Power Delivery-compliant 27W charging block, you can use it with your Pixel 2 XL, even. Just don't expect those speeds.
Rumors have said that the new iPhones charge at a rate of 10 watts. So, why go overkill with MacBook chargers and a new cable?
And as to the colors for the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, we could see just three colors in production versus the five for the iPhone 7.
The HomePod firmware revelations just keep coming in, including proper confirmation of iPhone 8 wireless charging and signs of something called SmartCam.
A new cable, perhaps an extra dongle, a new power adapter and somewhat faster charging may await if you purchase an iPhone 8 from this fall.
