Infinix is now said to have a new smartphone charging system that could set a new record for the industry in the works. This alleged upgrade on 180W ThunderCharge technology is tipped to blow even the new Realme GT3 out of the water on its March 2023 launch. This event may introduce a new power brick with key adaptations to support its estimated 260W top speed.

Realme has claimed a new world record for smartphone charging speeds with the launch of its new GT3, although Xiaomi may be hot on its heels with even faster technology. However, Infinix might beat the electronics giant to the punch in the meantime with its new 260W ThunderCharge power brick.

A sneak preview of this new accessory via GSMArena has sparked speculation that a Zero Ultra successor with this wired charging upgrade is on the way. Nothing is certain as yet, although a March 9, 2023 launch for the new 260W ThunderCharge standard is apparently on the cards. Infinix is projected to debut the new "Advanced High-Performance Bus (AHB) circuit design" necessary to deliver 260W through a power accessory on that day.

The same ultra-high-wattage system is also slated to integrate multiple 100W "charge pumps", along the same lines as that of the GT3's 240W solution; then again, Infinix' new power brick reportedly packs 4 of these, as opposed to 3 in Realme's SuperVOOC version.

Finally, the OEM is also now rumored to have an equally groundbreaking 100W wireless charging system in development at the moment.
