For the vast majority, fast-charging of around 65W would be more than enough. There's no need for anything faster unless you are always out and drain your phone really fast. But companies have been pushing fast-charging speeds and there's a new rumour about it.

Some may find it silly at this point, but companies are continually pushing battery charging speeds to crazy levels. We've seen Xiaomi experiment with 100W fast-charging last year and Black Shark is working on that for its next flagship gaming phone. And now sources claim that we'll see actual products that support 100W fast-charging by Q1 2021.

Other than the tech specs of cameras, the fast-charging capability is also getting competitive in the smartphone industry. The highest fast charge capacity currently sits at 65W, and many companies are aiming to launch devices that are capable to support more than 100W. Earlier, Xiaomi demonstrated their 100W fast-charging solution that is able to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. Now, it is rumoured that the technology will appear on a Black Shark phone.

As smartphone features continue to improve exponentially throughout the years, it has come to our attention that many companies are attempting to integrate a faster-charging technology for devices. So far, we have seen Android companies in pursuing this such as OPPO, vivo, Huawei, Samsung and more but the super nice ones (like around 40W) are mostly seen on premium phones. For Qualcomm, they aim to change that with a new Quick Charge 3+ technology.
