Huawei will be hosting the Spring 2020 Launch event tonight in China to unveil Huawei P40 series in its home country. According to supply chain insiders, the company will also launch a 65W Gallium Nitride multi-device charger at the same event, which will begin in a few hours from now.
For years, we have been using silicon chargers to fuel up our electronic devices. But that will change soon as Gallium Nitride (GaN) chargers, simply known as Nitride chargers are expected to take over the world soon.
We already have several nitride chargers in the market from the likes of Xiaomi, Anker, RAVPower, Aukey, and more. Now, Huawei will also be joining the list with its upcoming 65W Gallium Nitride Charger. This charger will have both USB Type-A and Type-C to charge smartphones, tablets, and even laptops.
Smartphone manufacturers have already been shipping some of its phones with Gallium Nitride Chargers. Oppo Reno Ace, Realme X50 Pro 5G, and Nubia Red Magic 5G are the phones that come bundled with GaN chargers. Additionally, all of them charge at the rate of 65W, similar to the Xiaomi charger and the forthcoming Huawei charger.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a better alternative to silicon in chargers because it can withstand more power and temperature. Also, these chargers are relatively smaller than the regular high capacity silicon chargers. This makes them better in portability and can also be used to charge multiple devices with its high power capacity.
It seems that these giants of the technology sector are working on their various solutions with GaN technology (presumably in form of battery charger thought ). however, The source would be a supplier of Xiaomi, which would have confirmed that the other major brands would as well be gearing up for this. Huawei, OPPO, Apple e Samsung could launch their GaN charger over the next few months. In the cases of the two Chinese companies, the launch of Find X2 (a March) and series P40 (February 23/24), don’t reserve us any surprise.
Most likely, the various brands will also use the modules GaNFast NV6115 e NV6117 (just as Xiaomi) of Nanomicro Semi-conductor Corporation, the world’s first producer of GaN solutions. However, this news, even if it is still an indiscretion at the moment, may not be so unreal. After debut of the Mi 10 Pro and Xiaomi GaN charger, Realme intervened lightning by specifying that the X50 Pro will come with a charger with GaN technology directly inside the package. However, the race for the new feature has begun!
