The Sony Xperia X is a brand new phone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chip. However, despite being one of the latest smartphone offerings from the Japanese company, the Xperia X doesn’t include Quick Charge 3.0 support.
Quick Charge 3.0 is the latest charging technology from Qualcomm. It’s available for the company’s newest Snapdragon processors, including Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 620, 618, 617, and 430. This latest batch of processors will power this year’s smartphones and tablets.
The company touts the Quick Charge 3.0 as its “fastest, most efficient charging technology to date” and charges up to four times faster than conventional charging. Compared to the quick charging technology previously released by the company, Quick Charge 2.0, it’s 38 percent more efficient. It charges twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0.
The Sony Xperia X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 which doesn’t support Quick Charge 3.0. This might discourage some consumers from purchasing the new phone, but Quick Charge 2.0 is still fast. The company claims it charges 75 percent faster than Quick Charge 1.0, which charges up to 40 percent faster than conventional charging. Quick Charge 2.0 is also compatible with many accessories like power banks, wall adapters, and car adapters.
Quick Charge 2.0 works with Sony’s Smart Battery Management feature which allows the device to have up to 5.5 hours of power by charging for 10 minutes, which results in the Xperia X battery lasting for up to two days. The Smart Battery Management feature is also said to double the battery’s lifespan.
Sony Xperia X features a 5-inch full HD curved display, a 13-MP front shooter, and a 23-MP back camera with Predictive Hybrid Autofocus. It has up to 232 GB through a microSD card and a 2,700 mAh battery. It runs Android M out of the box.
The company is now accepting pre-orders for its Sony Xperia X. Sony has not specified when the new device will ship but it’s expected to release “soon.”
