Qualcomm has just announced Quick Charge 3+ technology which is a more affordable option catered for lower-cost products like phones, peripherals and chargers.

Quick Charge 3+ will first be available on Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 and 765G. The company reported that it can charge a phone from 0% to 50% in just 15 minutes, and it’s 35% faster than its predecessor. It’ll also support scalable voltage with 20mV steps from Quick Charge 4 and because it’ll come with USB Type-A to Type-C cables, it will be more affordable for both OEMs and consumers.
