Oppo To Launch Its 125W Fast-Charging Technology, Can Charge From 0-100% in 13mins
There is going to be drastic changeÂ in terms of smartphone charging speeds in the coming months. Days after rumors suggesting that Realme will be announcing its 120W fast-charging technologyÂ later this month,Â Oppo has officially announced plans to unveil its 125W fast-charging technology this week.
In a tweet earlier today, the company said that it will launch its latest charging tech on Wednesday, July 15.
For now, there’s no much info on the subject. However, Realmeâ€™s upcoming 120W charging technology is said to be able to juice-up a 4,000mAh Li-ion battery up to 33% in just 3 minutes. Given that the two will likely share the same underlying technology, weâ€™ll be surprised if the numbers are significantly different in Oppoâ€™s case.
Oppo and Realme are not the only smartphone manufacturers working on super-fast charging technologies. Xiaomi last year showed-off its 100WÂ â€œSuper Charge Turboâ€ technology that can juice up a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. We are yet, to see it in any commercial device until now.
Interestingly, recent events suggest that the Chinese company might have tweaked the technology further to make it even faster. Apparently, a 120W charger from the company was certifiedÂ this month by Chinaâ€™s 3C certification agency. Online rumors suggest that the Mi MIX 4 might be the first Xiaomi device with 100W+ charging.
It is worth noting here that Oppo already offers the fastest-charging technology in a production smartphone. That distinction belongs to theÂ Oppo Reno Ace, which was launched late last year withÂ 65W SuperVOOC charging. The technology is capable of completely charging the deviceâ€™s 4,000 battery in under 30 minutes. It will be interesting to see how fast the upcoming tech will be able to charge-up a similar-sized battery.
First 120W Fast Charging Technology Already Launched
Meanwhile, vivo iQOO has announced the first 120W fast charging solution for in the world. The technology is capable of completely charging the deviceâ€™s 4,000 battery in under 15 minutes. We are expecting solution from the upcoming 125W charging.
For Oppo, we should be expecting maybe 0 â€“ 100% in 12 minutes or less; though we are not sure yet.
