Nubia Z17 to be the first smartphone in the world with Quick Charge 4.0

    - Adrian Ungureanu

    Quick Charge 4.0 was announced by Qualcomm since November, but no one has implemented the new fast charging technology so far.

    But that is about to change as Nubia has now teased that its upcoming flagship, the Z17 would feature the Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0. The Nubia Z17 is already confirmed to feature the Snapdragon 835 processor which makes it just the right candidate to feature support for QC 4.0.

    Nubia is reported to have revealed this via a Weibo post which, unfortunately, we could not locate. The post was accompanied by a poster which shows that the device would be launched on June 1, 2016.

    As for the features, the QC 4.0 is not just faster, it’s designed to be more efficient and run cooler than prior generations. When compared to Quick Charge 3.0, Quick Charge 4 is up-to 20 percent faster, or 30 percent more efficient, while charging up to 5Β° C cooler. The fast charge is touted as capable of delivering up to 50% of charge in just 5 minutes.
