This processor follows this year's Snapdragon 820 and 821 which can be found in a cast majority of flagship devices released this year.
Qualcomm said QuickCharge 4 will charge devices faster and more efficiently than QuickCharge 3.0 and earlier iterations of the technology.
According to Qualcomm, a 5-minute charge using QC 4 should be able to supply your phone with enough juice to last a full 5 hours.
Samsung Electronics and Qualcomm announced on November 17 that they expanded their foundry contract in order to manufacture Snapdragon 835 by means of Samsung Electronics' 10 nm FinFET process technology.
Just like every year, Qualcomm didn't divulge much regarding what's in store for their upcoming chips.
Google's recently updated Android Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) for Nougat comes out strongly against non-standard fast charging systems like Qualcomm's.
Auditor General speaks out about irregular government expenditure
Makwetu said the main reason for the increase in irregular expenditure was the continued non-compliance with supply chain management legislation.
QC4.0 will be fully compliant with USB Power Delivery (PD), meaning consistent power delivery whether using the latest USB Type-C or other USB cable types.
Qualcomm is partnering with Samsung to develop its next-generation Snapdragon chip. By incorporating these technologies, Qualcomm Technologies standardizes the capabilities of Quick Charge 4 adapters, to help ensure that a single accessory supports multiple charging implementations and mobile devices, and that there is consistent performance when faced with the myriad of available charging solutions.
The Snapdragon 835 is in production and expected to ship in commercial devices in the first half of 2017.
Samsung had started makingchips based on the 10nm process back in October, thereby making it the first industry player to do so. It'll be a feature on smartphones running its next-generation Snapdragon 835 processor, also announced this morning. The 3.0 version of its quick-charging technology is now incorporated into more than three dozen smartphones, including the Asus ZenFone 3, the HTC 10 and the LG V20, and many more devices support Quick Charge 2.0. This includes voltage, current and temperature protection as well as cable quality and type detection.
Qualcomm said that the new 10nm transistor process allows the company to increase area efficiency by 30%.
