Microsofts new upcoming flagship may support Qualcomm Quick Charge Technology

Quick Charge technology aims to shoot your battery power from dead condition to half-full in just 30 minutes or so. The Quick Charge Technology is manufactured by Qualcomm and works mostly in the Qualcomm made platforms. This means the primary requirements for Quick Charge 2.0 are a Snapdragon-based smartphone or tablet and a Quick Charge 2.0-certified power supply. The technology being a product of Qualcomm, it would require power supply as well as phone or tablet have be licensed and certified by Qualcomm.

As Qualcomm said about Quick Charge:

Quick Charge 2.0 does not change the way battery charging takes place today. The level of the current going into the battery is controlled by the OEM and depends on battery capacity, battery type and other factors. Quick Charge 2.0 allows device manufacturers to achieve the full rated capability of the batteries they choose while still meeting the performance and safety standards set by the battery manufacturer. With Quick Charge 2.0, the life of large-format batteries (2000mAh and above) will be in line with that of smaller format batteries charging from traditional USB chargers.

Since the two Microsoft Lumia devices which are mentioned above will run Snapdragon processors which are manufactured by Qualcomm, it was not much of a big surprise when we came to know about it. We shall see the two upcoming Lumia flagship phones by the end of 2015.
