Infinix devices are widely known in the Kenyan market, as well as developing regions because they are affordable, and bring leading specs at a price that is none like what the competition asks for equivalent smartphones. This has been its tactic, alongside its siblings under the Transsion Holdings umbrella.
The Chinese company, which runs its operations from Hong Kong, is reportedly developing a 160W fast charger. According to XDA, the plug will likely be used for smartphones, although that output is very ambitious for a handheld device.
Based on a shared picture, the plug is ginormous by any standards. This should nevertheless be the case because powerful fast-chargers are chunky boys. However, it is not apparent which Infinix phone will take advantage of this kind of charging because its current offerings top off at a max of 33W.
Before we can over-speculate, it should be remembered that Infinix now makes laptops as we learned a couple of days ago. Such kind of wattage is often used for laptops. It doesn’t mean that smartphones cannot be juiced with ridiculously fast-chargers; Huawei, vivo, and OPPO have their solution too that go past the 100W mark.
As we said, unless Infinix has a device that we are not aware of, its current high-end product the Note 10 Pro maxes out at 33W. The Zero 8 also charges at the same speeds (which are still high by the company’s standards, bearing in mind others such as Samsung sell their high-end phones with 25W plugs).
