LG_G4_15

There seems to be some confusion on whether or not the LG G4 officially supported Qualcomm’s super fast Quick Charge 2.0 technology. LG never mentioned Quick Charge 2.0 compatibility in any of their press materials despite the particular Snapdragon 808 chipset being more than capable of supporting it. It was disappointing for sure, especially given rival devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 or HTC One M9 all offering support for the new quicker charging method. As we mentioned in those reviews, it really will change the way you look at battery life on your Android device.

Well, it appears LG may have finally wised up and is now confirming that the device will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 in time for its general retail release — even if it doesn’t support it right now. Whether it will have Quick Charge 2.0 compatibility out of the box or if this will come in the form of an over-the-air update remains to be seen. But Qualcomm seems to have gotten word and has already updated their Quick Charge 2.0 device page to include the LG G4. All’s well that ends well, I guess.
