    I haven't read about it anywhere. Just wondering how much faster it will charge than the S7E, especially with a smaller battery and hopefully faster charging capability.

    This is what I want to know. I'm hoping for QC4.

    Quick Google search turned up this, I'm not sure how accurate it is but it says the Qualcomm ones will have quick charge 4.

    Qualcomms website hasn't been updated with new devices yet, but assuming it is 4 then it should be a nice leap from 2.0 on the S7e.

    4 is 20% faster than 3 which on this charge would put it at 85% in 30min on this chart.

    Anyone know which version of quick charge the S8 has?-quick-charge-3.0.jpg

    Samsung's website doesn't specifically state what version of wireless charging the device has but we can assume it's at least 3.0. 😃 Qualcomm does state that quick charge 4.0 will come with the new 835 processor but that doesn't mean Samsung have included in.

    I'm hoping it's not based on QC 2.0

    USB-C specs require that a non-proprietary form of fast-charging be used in order to maintain specs. Basically, use USB Power Delivery as the base as it's developed for USB-C by the USB consortium and is cross-compatible with other devices like laptops and the Nintendo Switch.

    I'll be disappointed if Samsung has not updated their version of fast charging to be compatible with Power Delivery.

    I believe it is Quick Charge 4.0 as well.

    With quick charge 4.0 anyone know how long a total charge would take.

    So, is it safe to say not to purchase any current charging adapters (especially wireless charging docks) until the device is finally out? I always like to get my accessories ready for day one, so as to not deal with a naked phone, or having to scramble after-the-fact for accessories that are quickly snapped up at the stores.

    According to Qualcomm's website, it takes 15 mins to charge a 2750 mah battery with QC 4. Since the S8 has a 3000 mah battery, it will take slightly longer for the S8's battery to reach 50%.

    Any quick charge 2.0 or better charger should provide good results.

    It looks like quick charge 4 chargers aren't even available yet.

    Probably the best indicator that the S8 will not have it.

    You'd think that the new Samsung one they announced at the event would be the latest version. Not that it's available yet.

    Pretty sure it's the same as the S7 (Quick Charge 2.0).

    That would really be kinda pathetic if they only put 2.0 on it.

    It may very well still be Quick Charge 4.0, but only be equipped with a 2.0 charger in the box. It's those accessories they want you to buy, just like the AKG Bluetooth headphones, the standard wireless charger, and the quick wireless charger...

    My iPad mini came with an 5W iPhone AC adapter, though I know it can handle 10-12W for even speedier charging. Apple was just being cheap about it.
