Does Huawei P40/P40 Pro have fast charging?
Under the spread of coronavirus, Huawei P40 series is to be launched online, according to an official teaser banner which said clearly it is an online global launch event. The scheduled March 16 is also delayed, leaving people more uncertainty and mystery for the new Huawei P series. Rumor has it that the P40 and P40 Pro will have a triple camera system and four cameras on the back respectively — as is always the case, that P series has been best known for its “photography”. And because of Huawei Supercharge tech and the 50W on Mate X, we also expect a super-fast wired charging on P40/P40 Pro. Will that come true?
Some tipsters claimed that the P40/P40 Pro will have 50W fast charging and 27W wireless/reverse wireless charging. Well, that sounds really good news, but other leaks suggest that medium-fast is a more likely result. According to a certification issued by China 3C, Huawei’s one model, presumably P40, supports 10V/2.25A charging, while the other model, which can be the Pro, supports 10V/4A. Considering the Mate X and Mate Xs reached a 55W charging speed, there is a possibility that the Premium variant may have higher charging to match the foldable phones.
If all these are the truth, we are actually using the new handset in the same charging speed as its predecessors. 40W is not slow, as Huawei Mate 20 Pro, P30 Pro, and Mate 30 Pro have all stand out with a 40 W charging that took the 4,200mAh battery to 70% capacity in 30 minutes. But if we compare it with other brands like Samsung, we may be a little disappointed to know there are also 50W and even 65W charging solutions. The standard P40 model’s 22.5W is a bit outdated and in an urgent need of an upgrade, not only because the mid-range P40 Lite supports 40W SuperCharge Tech, but because the standard variants have had this speed since P10 days.
Of course, Huawei is still likely to do something more to enable faster charging, just like Samsung’s recent flagship supporting PPS and USB-Power Delivery 3.0 technologies. If the battery is upgraded, we can expect a batter charging as well. Just the end of last year, for instance, Huawei was rumored to have a graphene battery for its smartphone lineup. Graphene batteries can store a lot more energy inside, can charge extremely quickly, and can even hold that charge for a longer time without degrading, so if mass production of this battery is realized, we will surely get a faster charging and a smartphone with longer life.
