To develop more advanced fast-charging technologies, phone makers are pushing the limit to the max. We’ve seen Vivo’s iQOO sub-brand launch a smartphone with support for 120W fast charging last year. And now, the Chinese smartphone giant Infinix is developing a phone concept that supports 160W fast charging technology in 2021.
Infinix Concept Phone 2021
Recently announced, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021 comes with some impressive specs and features, including an 88-degree curved screen, triple rear cameras, and support for 160W ultra-flash wired fast charging technology and 50W wireless charging.
160W fast charging support
As you can see, the USP of this concept device is the super-fast charging capability that takes the battery from 0 to 100% in just 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right! Infinix showcased the feature in a video, which you can see in the tweet below.
According to the video, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021 goes from 0-18% in about 1 minute. So if you want a quick recharge before heading out somewhere, a five-minute charge could give you more than 50 percent of battery life. The 4,000 mAh battery inside reaches 100% in about 10 minutes, which is insane!
The company says it has used an 8C battery instead of a traditional 6C battery to accomplish this feat. Infinix also integrated its proprietary Super Charge Pump technology that converts the incoming voltage from the USB-C port to the voltage going into the device’s battery. Super Charge Pump technology is 98.6 percent efficient.
In addition, the device has more than 20 temperature sensors onboard that allow it to stay below 40 degrees Celsius during constant use. In the video above, we can see that the temperature of the device remains at 37.3 degrees Celsius during the 160W fast charge test.
Display, internals, and cameras
As for the other specifications, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021 comes with a 6.67-inch Full HD + AMOLED panel with an 88-degree curvature. Under the hood, the device includes a MediaTek Helio G95 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.
In terms of optics, the device features a triple camera setup on the back, which has a color-changing design (similar to OnePlus’s color-changing phone concept) along with the word “Now” written on it. bold font. The cameras housed within a huge rectangular camera module include a 64MP primary lens, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and an 8MP periscope lens with a 135mm diameter and up to 60X zoom.
Price and availability
Now coming to the price and availability of the device, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021, as you can see, is a concept phone as of now. As a result, there is no information on pricing and availability details. Also, there is a possibility that the company will not even launch the device on the market. However, Infinix may integrate its 160W fast charging technology into upcoming devices. However, the company can also launch the same device, albeit under a different name.
