A few days ago we found out that Samsung has chosen to not include Quick-Charge fast charge technology 3.0 on board recent Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, although the models marketed in China, Japan and United States, have a compatible chipset as the Snapdragon 820.
The same decision seems to have been taken from Sony for new Xperia X and X Performance, which will remain stationary at the Quick-Charge 2.0. In reference to the topic, Qualcomm clarifies ideas stating the following:
The Xperia X Xperia X Performance also incorporate fast-charging technology Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and Smart Battery Management by Sony, which allow up to 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes of charging, and a full charge can last up to two days.
Xperia X builds on the architecture Snapdragon 650, while Xperia X Performance on the most powerful model, the Snapdragon 820. While using two different architectures, both solutions Quick-Charge technologies support 2.0 and Qualcomm 3.0, so the decision is definitely unusual. This is because, unlike themotorcyclers, Sony isn’t trying to promote its own fast Wireless charging technology, marketed versions are the same across the globe, while Samsung also manufactures the variant based on Exynos 8890 Octa core, which then is given to our market.
Unless there’s some hardware limitation not yet known, it’s really a shame not to have exploited the standard Quick-Charge generation 3.0, what do you think?
