In a statement, the company said this was the fastest commercial charging technology for Android devices, and also enabled new battery technology, accessories, and safety features.
"Quick Charge 5, our fastest and most versatile charging solution, will enable consumers to use their devices longer without worrying about the time required to recharge," said Ev Roach, vice-president Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies.
"We are proud to expand our technology portfolio and make accessible 100W+ charging a commercial reality.
Quick Charge 5 is expected to make its public debut in devices in the third quarter of 2020.

The technology is 70% more efficient than Quick Charge 4 and offers 10 times the power delivery of Quick Charge 12. It also supports 2S batteries and 20 volts of power delivery.
Safety features in Quick Charge 5 include the inclusion of 12 separate voltage, current and temperature protections, including USB-input overvoltage protection at 25V and external power controls beyond 30V.
It also runs 10 degrees Celsius cooler than Quick Charge 4. Quick Charge 5 enables Dual/Triple Charge technology, and adaptive input voltage or INOV4,
The technology also incorporates Qualcomm Battery Saver and the new Qualcomm Smart Identification of Adapter Capabilities technology, which together maximise power transfer efficiency, increase safety and help extend the battery life cycle on a users' device.
"Quick Charge solutions are widely available in a variety of mobile devices," said Zhang Lei, Mi Phone vice-president and hardware R&D general manager at Xiaomi.
"The latest generation of Quick Charge 5 not only provides superior charging capabilities but also helps intelligently extend a device's battery life and reduce thermal output.
"Xiaomi has always been committed to proactively driving the adoption of new technologies and accelerating the fulfillment of enhanced experiences. In future, more Xiaomi users will be able to enjoy high-speed, safe and superior charging experiences enabled by Quick Charge 5."
To ensure that the new charging technology works at an optimum level, Qualcomm Technologies has brought in the newest and next generation premium tier power management ICs (PMIC), Qualcomm SMB1396 and Qualcomm SMB1398.
Supporting 1SnP and 2SnP batteries, wired and wireless input paths, adaptive operation based on the power source (3 level buck and DIV/2), and scalability (primary and secondary to provide higher power), Qualcomm SMB1396 and Qualcomm SMB1398 are engineered to provide maximum efficiency above 98%.
They can support higher than 20V input voltage operation to accommodate the highest power levels from both wireless and wired power sources. Both Qualcomm SMB1396 and SMB1398 are now available.
