The choice of 120W charging came with three main challenges to come across. Technical Difficulties, Shortages, Expensive parts.
Going in order, there were many challenges in technical challenges. First of all, they had to split the battery into two, increasing the number of charging chips, then the device should be kept thin and light for proper heat management and more components need to be installed.
Secondly, due to Covid, there is a huge shortage resulting in expensive parts, and speaking of expensive parts. The company had to custom fabricate the motherboards of the devices so that they would be able to withstand the huge charging voltage coming inside a smartphone, as it is necessary to involve the motherboard, battery, charger, and data line, and other four aspects, each of which requires a higher cost increase.
Smartphone companies also sometimes use used chips or old chipsets but for this kind of device, they had to use the latest chipsets in order to get the best results.
