Exclusive: Infinix to release a phone with 260W charging
As charging speeds continue to grow with each passing month, more manufacturers are looking to get past the 200W threshold, and now Infinix is set to launch a phone with 260W wired charging.
We received an image of the upcoming Infinix 260W Thunder Charge charger. The charger is placed next to a phone similar to the Infinix Zero Ultra, which was launched with 180W charging capacity. The new 260W charging system will reportedly bring a four-way 100W charge pump and an AHB (Advanced High-Performance Bus) circuit design with safe charging control.
Our source also mentions that Infinix is testing a 100W wireless charging solution. This one will bring a custom coil design with improved charging efficiency, reduced internal resistance and increased peak power charging time.
Infinix 260W Thunder Charge first look
According to the source, Infinix will announce its 260W charging solution a week from now on March 9. It remains to be seen if we will see a new phone launch alongside the 260W charger or if it will use a modified version of the Infinix Zero Ultra. In any case, Infinix will bring a phone with a 260W charger to the market before the end of the year.
Once launched, Infinix will secure the throne as the manufacturer with the fastest charging phone, surpassing Realme, which recently debuted its GT Neo5 and Realme GT3 phones that support up to 240W fast charging. We can expect more manufacturers to continue to up the wattage game until phones can top up their batteries in a matter of seconds.
