As charging speeds continue to grow each passing month, more makers are looking to get past the 200W threshold and now Infinix is gearing up 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 that resembles the Infinix Zero Ultra which launched with 180W charging capabilities. 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
As per the source, Infinix will announce its 260W charging solution a week from now on March 9. It remains to be seen if we’ll see a new phone launch alongside the 260W charger or if it will use a modified version of the Infinix Zero Ultra. In all cases Infinix will bring a phone with 260W charger to the market by the end of the year.
Once launched, Infinix will secure the throne as the maker with the fastest charging phone, outpacing Realme which recently debuted its GT Neo5 and Realme GT3 phones that support up to 240W fast charging. We can expect more makers to continue to push the wattage game up until phones can top up their batteries in a matter of seconds.
