Since OPPO has managed to nearly double charging speeds with its new solution, the SuperVOOC 2.0 successor will likely be capable of charging a phone with a 4,000mAh battery in less than 15 minutes. While OPPO's next-gen fast charging tech won't be detailed until Wednesday, Vivo's iQOO sub-brand officially announced its 120W charging tech today. The brand says its 120W FlashCharge solution can charge a 4,000mAh dual-cell battery in just 15 minutes.
As per Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station, iQOO will be launching its first phone with 120W FlashCharge technology next month. While no other details are currently available, the phone is likely to be powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865+ chipset.
Realme, which started off as an OPPO sub-brand in 2018, is also said to be working on a 125W fast charging solution, called "UltraDart." The company is expected to officially announce its 125W UltraDart fast charging tech later this month.
