Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 soon to be available in Japan via NTT DOCOMO
You may have several devices from smartphones to laptop computers but when it comes to charging these devices, that can be a bit annoying as it takes pretty long time sometimes, fortunately Qualcomm has solution for that and the company has decided to unleash the technology first in Japan in collaboration with NTT DOCOMO.
The Quick Charge 2.0 comes with 60 watts of power offering 70% faster charging than its predecessor 1.0 which only offered 10 watts. The company claims that devices with the technology can charge up to 75% faster than devices without the technology. The improvements in the technology promises a faster charging for wide array of mobile computing devices in the near future, Japan being the first to get it.
NTT DOCOMO has integrated the technology with devices like smartphones, tablets and certified power adapters. The company is expected to launch the Quick Charge 2.0 later this year. Consumers will be able to grab their AC adapters powered by Quick Charge technology while the devices with Snapdragon 800 supports the technology.
Despite the new version, Quick Charge 1.0 Adapter could still charge your devices with 2.0 technology, charging speed may vary though.
Unfortunately, it is yet to be known when AC Adapters with the technology will be available outside of Japan.
