We examined a 160W fast charging concept phone from Infinix last year. Since then, the business has kept working on battery technology and increased the charge rate. Here is a brief teaser video that Benjamin Jiang, CEO, posted.
According to the onscreen label, Infinix refers to this new technology as “Thunder Charge,” and it has a max power rating of 180W. The footage only lasts for around 10 seconds, yet within that time the battery indicator increases by almost a full percentage point.
What is the speed of Thunder Charge? We don’t yet know. The objective of the 160W system from the previous year was to charge a 4,000mAh battery to 100% in just 10 minutes. Although the business hasn’t yet introduced a retail device with 160W charging, it did introduce the Infinix Note 12 VIP. Its battery capacity is somewhat higher at 4,500mAh, and the official time to charge it from zero to one hundred percent is 17 minutes (if you’re interested, check out our hands-on review of the 12 VIP).
The 2021 concept phone had an electroluminescent film that could be used for notifications in addition to a color-changing film on the back. There might be more to this new gadget as well, so keep checking techmansion.net for updates.
