MediaTek unveiled a new fast-charging technology that will go into its Helio P20 chipset that is expected to hit the market by the end of the year. The evolutionary technology, dubbed Pump Express 3.0, will allegedly take your battery from 0 percent to 70 percent in less than 20 minutes.
The company claims that the technology will leverage the dynamics of USB Type-C to make the dream of charging a phone as possible a reality.
According to the designers, the system will bypassing the phone’s charging circuitry and deliver the juice straight to the battery. This will avoid any power losses or regulations imposed by different phones without putting the phone and its components at risk.
By using over 20 safety and protection system to prevent overheating, MediaTek believes that Pump Express 3.0 will not only be innovative but also of great benefit to people who are ever on the move.
With most of the smartphone models in the market taking at least an hour to hit the 70 percent mark, MediaTek will definitely place itself at the forefront if it can pull this out.
It will mean less power banks and little time spent hooking up your phone to charge. Our smartphones will continually put more weight on your battery hence draining it faster. It is just but common sense to find a way to replenish the battery as soon as possible.
Pump Express 3.0 will help MediaTek compete with its archrival, Qualcom, better. Qualcom has Quick Charge 3.0 that makes phones running on its flagship chipsets like Snapdragon 820 to charge much faster.
It might be a while before you see the Helios P20 on a smartphone. However, MediaTek’s reputation for creating impressive but affordable chipset means that the Helios P20 and the Pump Express 3.0 will make its way to more phones than Qualcom’s Quick Charge.
