Qualcomm has been on the bleeding edge of pumping as much power into your smartphone as possible - in both its Snapdragon processors and Quick Charge technology - but now Quick Charge is about to step up to another level.

Our friends over at Fudzilla are reporting that Quick Charge 4.0 will roll out with the upcoming Snapdragon 830 processor, and that the information they have comes from an "accessory manufacture that wants to remain silent". They said that the new charge will support up to 5V/4.7A~5.6A, or 9V/4A in similar configurations.

Quick Charge 4.0 hitting 28W will be a big deal, as it'll charge smartphones even quicker. Quick Charge 3.0 on my Pixel smartphone is incredibly awesome, and so much faster than my previous iPhone 6S smartphone which charged so slowly in comparison.

Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 830 processor will launch in Q1 2017, but which smartphone will pack Qualcomm's latest chip first? We should find out during Mobile World Congress 2017 in late-February next year.
