“The new charger will offer half the power of Huawei’s premium SuperCharge 2.0 standard”
Huawei has one of the fastest charging technologies in the smartphone industry. The vendor recently introduced the Mate 20 Pro (review) smartphone with SuperCharge 2.0 technology that supports 40W adapter. It is said to charge the handset’s beefy 4,200mAh battery from 0 to 70 percent in just 30 minutes. Now, according to a newly-leaked document, Huawei is working on a 20W fast charging for mid-range phones that’ll be less powerful but more affordable than the SuperCharge 2.0.
The Chinese OEM may use the 20W fast-charging tech on its upper mid-range smartphones in the future. The new 20W Huawei charger will reportedly offer half the power of the SuperCharge 2.0 technology. That means it’ll come with 10V/2A charging standards compared to the premium 10V/4A standard.
The charger is expected to launch sometime in 2019, the exact timeframe is not known at the moment. Rumours are Huawei is likely to launch the successor of P20 and P20 Pro (review) smartphone – allegedly dubbed as the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro – in March or April. Therefore, we expect that the charger could debut with the regular variant of P30-series. With Pro model, the vendor might ship the 40W SuperCharge 2.0 charger.
As for the specifications, the Huawei P30 is rumoured to arrive with the same triple rear cameras as its predecessor. While the Huawei P30 Pro might feature a quad camera module with a LED flash placed beside it. The handsets are likely to be driven by industry’s 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset mated with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB onboard storage. Powering the devices could be Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9 out of the box. On the display front, the offerings might sport an AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
