Honor unveiled the Magic 2 smartphone at IFA 2018 technology show. The new smartphone is said to be the next flagship smartphone from company featuring a full screen display with a pop-up camera module similar to the Oppo Find X. It is also stated to come powered with Huawei’s newly launched Kirin 980 SoC. However, the key highlight of the device is said to be a bundled SuperCharger designed by Huawei, which the company claims supports 40W charging speeds. Now, a Chinese website Chongdian Tou has managed to get its hands on a leaked image of the charger whihc further reveals some details on it.

The image posted by the website showcases the charger to boast a standard charging input of 100-240V~50/60Hz. However, its output varies from 5V/2A, 9V/2A to a maximum of 10V/4A. The latter is said to be twice as fast as Huawei’s current fast charging standard. With that much power, the new charger should be able to get the Magic 2 up to 100 percent within an hours’ time.

That said, the report also mentions that Huawei could have easily opted for a current limit of 5A instead of 4A on the output, as that is the current norm with smartphones flaunting a Type-C port. However, Huawei seems to have decided on sticking with 4A, undertaking safety issues. The report states that at a high current output, there will be overheating issues and that it will also lead to the battery aging a lot faster. The impact is said to be far less at 4A current and with 10V (voltage) output.

That said, more rumors are expected to surface in the following months. You can expect us to keep you updated.
