Have you noticed that your new smartphone charges up quicker than your old one? You might want to thank Qualcomm and the Quick Charge 1.0 technology, which Qualcomm today announced is in more than 70 Snapdragon-based smartphones and tablets.
The rapid-charging technology can charge your phone up to 40 percent faster than previous generations, Qualcomm claims.
Last week at HTC's Frequencies event, our Chief Marketing Officer Anand Chandrasekher spoke with bloggers about a little-known Qualcomm technology which is designed to dramatically decrease the time it takes to charge the battery in a mobile device. We call this rapid charging technology "Quick Charge 1.0."
Qualcomm will release further details about Quick Charge in the coming weeks, but has listed all of the devices that currently feature the technology on its blog page. Check it out to find out if your handset is one of them.
