Huawei’s latest phones are some of the best hardware
Huawei phones are not available everywhere and the continued presence of the company on the U.S. Government’s Entity List means they can’t have full Google Mobile Services on board, relying on open-source Android instead.
None the less, nothing can take away from the phones’ great designs, stunningly good cameras and plenty of other innovations.
Huawei’s latest phones are some of the best hardware you can buy and a new report suggests that while Apple is rumored to remove the charger from the box of the iPhone 12, Huawei may be about to significantly upgrade its charger, as reported by Huawei Central.
Now, it’s rumored that the charging could happen much faster, too. Not that it’s slow now, by the way.
For the last couple of years, Huawei has bundled a 40W charger with many of its phones, including the Mate 20, P30, Mate 30 and P40 series. Compare that to the 5W charger in the iPhone 11 box. A more powerful charger comes with the iPhone 11 Pro, but it’s still only 18W.
The importance of the right charger has grown over recent years as battery demand has grown so much. If a battery drains fast, then recharging it fast becomes increasingly necessary.
So, the prospect of a really powerful charger means that, battery and software permitting, the recharge time should be reduced considerably.
A new Huawei charger has just been certificated from 3C, which stands for China Compulsory Certificate. The code for the charger is HW110600C00, and while that’s not a catchy name, the power level is more memorable: 66W.
That’s a pretty impressive charger and proves that Huawei is determined to be class-leading in every aspect of the phone’s hardware, even down to the accessories.
Of course, it’s possible it won’t be bundled with the Mate 40 Series but come later or be sold separately. It has only just received its certificate in the last couple of days, after all.
But Huawei’s ambition will be to have it ready as soon as possible, surely, and putting it in the box certainly makes for a headline-grabbing comparison with other phones.
