When Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were released on February 21, many of the features on both flagships were no more a surprise. Thus making both devices according to the high expectations of the aspiring users, Samsung has included almost all of the anticipated features. The Quick Charging capacity has been among these key features which were rumored long before unveiling of the flagship devices. But fresh reports suggest the quick charging on the Galaxy S7 flagship will not be the upgraded Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
Instead of the latest version of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be equipped with Quick Charge 2.0. The older Quick Charge 2.0 has also been an impressive in its performance with Galaxy S6. But unlike many other features which make the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge most up-to-date devices, the older version of the Quick Charge will be disappointing for its users.
The Quick Charge increases charging speed on the devices which enables you to charge your device in less time using the supported charger. Since the launch of Galaxy S6, the Quick Charge has been upgraded on its various areas. The Quick Charge 3.0 was released in September last year with a quicker charging capability and broader support. Therefore, the Quick Charge 3.0 has been ready for six months and has been much anticipated for the new Galaxy flagships.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were announced to ship in two different chipset options either with Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 chipset or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. The latest version of Snapdragon chipset supports the latest Quick Charge 3.0 but the Exynos 8890 is still tuned on the older Quick Charge 2.0. Therefore, Samsung could possibly use the Quick Charge 3.0 on the Snapdragon 820 running devices but it has probably kept it away from both device to maintain the same level for both.
