When LG launched the G4 a few weeks ago, support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology was surprisingly absent from the handset. LG claimed that quick charging technology was “not a must-have feature” on a device with a removable battery, so the company ultimately opted to pass on the battery tech. However, despite initial claims, LG and Qualcomm have just officially confirmed that the G4 does in fact support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0.
As it turns out, the company didn’t initially manufacturer the G4 with the intention of supporting the tech, but it will be available on consumer-ready units when the phone is released to the masses. The pre-production units charge slightly faster than other handsets thanks to the included 1.8A wall charger, though not nearly as fast as other handsets with the technology built in.

Although LG is correct in saying that Quick Charge 2.0 isn’t as necessary on a device with a removable battery, this will likely be welcome news to many users hoping to get their hands on the device.
