As rumours of Huawei’s next flagship phone’s launch date continue to swirl, specs of the handset also continue to leak in dribs and drabs.

According to Digital Chat Station (@StationChat on Twitter), to support the phone’s alleged 66W fast charging capability (a 66W charger passed through China’s 3C certification board a couple of months back), Huawei is also going to launch a power bank to support this super-fast charging rate.

More specifically, the upcoming 12,000mAh power bank will use Huawei’s SuperCharge protocol to deliver 6A @ 11V to the handset.

It also supports USB Power Delivery up to 3.25A @ 20V (65W), which is handy for non-Huawei devices that use USB-PD instead of SCP.

And of course, this power bank will be backward compatible with other Huawei phones that use 40W and 22.5W SuperCharge.
