How to quick charge Samsung Galaxy S8 properly?
To answer this question we need to figure out what type of quick charge technology Samsung Galaxy S8 uses? Does S8 feature Qualcomm quick charge 3.0 or 4?

It has not been confirmed yet whether S8 will use different processors for different region markets, probably parts of versions will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip which is able to support the Quick Charge 4 and Quick Charge 3.0 with backwards compatibility if Samsung is not off the beaten path this year. As Quick Charge 4 has not been released by Qualcomm officially yet, either do the accessories.
