HTC One M9 Did Not Get Lucky With Chipsets

By  | 

One of the issues that people seem to be having with their HTC One M9 model is the short battery life but that could be countered if only they got the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

Since the HTC One A9, the lower range model was given the support, M9 users were hoping that they would get it too but sadly, that is not the case. According to the reports, Qualcomm’s 3.0 will only be compatible with a few chipsets.

Chips that supports the quick charge features include the Snapdragon 820, 620, 618, 617 and 430 which is not what the M9 is running on. The Quick Charge 3.0 features will charge 38% faster than the Quick Charge 2.0 and four times more than the standard charging time. It is also backward compatible which means you can pair up a Quick Charge 3.0 device with a Quick Charge 2.0 charger. It works the other way around as well but the device that supports Quick Charge 2.0 only will not charge any faster with the 3.0 charger.
