Chinese handset maker Nubia has teased a forthcoming 5G phone with a crazy 80W charging capabilities. Ni Fei, the CEO and Co-Founder of Nubia, shared a post on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website, to tease an upcoming 5G smartphone with an impressive 80W fast charging capabilities, GizmoChina has recently reported.
In the Weibo post, Fei posted an image as well which contained certain details and statistics regarding a smartphone being charged. Looking at the details, Voltage can be observed at 8.4 Volts while the current is at 9.6 Ampere. In simpler terms, this translates to a fast charging rate upwards of 80W that is higher than 65W but a bit lower than true 100W charging rates, the report added.
It is pertinent to note that devices that reach such high wattage over USB Power Delivery do it by increasing both their voltage and amperage, hitting the 20V maximum before ramping the current much above 3A.
Nubia is soon expected to launch its first 5G Red Magic phone, which might end up supporting a 55W charger. It is likely that the company might unveil it during MWC. The anticipated handset has cleared 3C certification with model number NX659J.
