The Huawei Mate 20 series comes with some great new features and powerful hardware. It has the first ever 7nm-based chipset from the company – the HiSilicon Kirin 980, a triple camera, and stunning build quality. At the launch event, Huawei announced that the series features 40W wired fast charging otherwise known as Super Charge 2.0. Even though there are faster solutions around, Huawei’s Super Charge 2.0 manages to top up the battery in around 68 minutes. Furthermore, Huawei’s wireless charging too has fast charge support that maxes out at 15W. Given the 4,200mAh battery pack of the Mate 20 Pro, users will most likely need it. What they will not need is Huawei charging brick, according to a new report.

As opposed to what officials said, Huawei‘s fast wireless plate supports a charging adapter with support for 15W from any brand. This is good news because it would be a big annoyance to carry Huawei’s own charger everywhere. As a matter of fact, Qualcomm’s adapter can also be used to achieve the same fast charge on the Huawei CP60 wireless charger. Huawei’s CP60 wireless charger costs around RMB 99, and a Qualcomm adapter costs something around RMB 30. A total of RMB 130 is not a bad deal at all when you consider some other wireless chargers from Sony and Samsung cost a lot more.

Huawei’s wireless charger is considerably fast as the company claims a 31 percent top up in half an hour, and 12 percent in 10 minutes. The wireless charger has a silicone construction, and can even charge a phone with non-metallic-casing less than 5mm thick. Huawei has also confirmed that it will be introducing the wireless charger in India when it debuts the Mate 20 Pro later this month. The new handset is expected to be exclusive to Amazon India.
