Some fascinating new details about the Nexus 6P has come to gentle. Francisco Franco did some digging across the issues log for the Angler — in a different way affectionately referred to as the Nexus 6P — and located feedback which recommend that the tool does, if truth be told, have right kind hardware for Quick Charge 2.0.
The computer virus used to be signed off by way of Huawei’s Richard Yuan, who commented with the next:
As angler won't fortify QC2.0, however pmi8994 and smb1351 improve QC2.0, we will have to disable this option. Modify pmi8994 sign in 0x13f1 and 0x13f4 to set 5V handiest and disable HVDCP for pmi8994. Modify smb1351 registers 0x10, 0x12, 0x14 to set 5V most effective and disable HVDCP for smb1351.
The values “pmi8994” and “smb1351” discuss with energy regulator chips at the Snapdragon 810, the stuff that makes Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 generation paintings. As you'll be able to inform from the remark, the function used to be intentionally disabled.
But this shouldn’t be unexpected to someone. We knew there used to be an excellent chance that the hardware did improve Quick Charge 2.0 as it might be useless for Qualcomm to manufacture a whole chipset simply to completely exclude the generation.
And we additionally have an effective concept why Google didn’t need it — USB Type-H helps speedy charging simply effective by itself. The most effective factor comes from the individuals who are peeved that their present Quick Charge 2.0 equipment have been rendered unnecessary for the Nexus 6P.
That’s an even grievance, however we knew all of this from the start, and also you will have to all the time think that your subsequent software will include its personal quirks and that earlier equipment would possibly or will not be absolutely compatible. Don’t like that reality? You’re all the time simply as loose to head with a special software.
