OEM companies are not slowing down with fast charging technology in 2021. The Infinix Concept Phone 2021 is the new member of the family with a 160W fast-charging system that can fully charge the 4,000 mAh battery capacity in just 10 minutes – you need to read that again! The smartphone acts as a showroom for other features the company is working on.
According to Infinix, the Ultra Flash Charge system of the Concept Phone 2021 is built around an 8C battery that has an 18% lower internal resistance compared to a 6C battery. This indicates how fast a lithium battery can either be charged or discharged.
Infinix proclaims to develop the Super Charge Pump that converts the incoming voltage from the USB-C port to the voltage that goes into the battery. The company states that the pump boasts 98.6% efficiency. It is important to mention that Oppo’s 125W system with three parallel pumps achieves 98% efficiency. Of course, higher efficiency is better because the remaining percentage points to 100% turn to heat and higher internal battery resistance translates into more heat.
The Infinix Concept Phone 2021 features 20 temperature sensors dotted around the phone. The function of these sensors is to ensure that the device remains under 40ºC (104ºF). The security protection kicks in, if it goes over, or the device senses a higher than expected electromagnetic interference or voltage.
The charger that delivers the 160W fast charging is built Gallium Nitrate (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) semiconductors to stay relatively compact and highly efficient. It supports multiple protocols so it can handle charging laptops and phone. The Infinix Concept Phone supports fast wireless charging up to 50W, which is pretty common in the market right now.
Another interesting concept explored by Infinix here is the 6.67″ AMOLED display with 1080p+ and a pretty extreme curvature at the sides. A curvature of this magnitude leaves no room for buttons on the side. For now, there is no actual information on if or when we will see these technologies on an “actual” Infinix phone. So just relax and keep your fingers crossed.
