Oppo has revealed that it’s preparing to announce the next generation 125W fast-charging technology on July 15, surpassing its own 65W charging solution and beating the competition to the punch. Previously there have been several reports of Xiaomi and Vivo working on 100W+ fast-charging solutions, with the latter even showing off its 120W Super FlashCharge charging technology last year.
As per a tweet posted by the official Twitter handle of Oppo, the company will introduce a 125W fast charging solution on July 15 with more details being awaited. To give you an idea, Vivo’s Super Flash Charge 120W fast charging takes 13 minutes to charge a 4,000mAh battery and 5 minutes to go from 0-50%. The upcoming 125W fast charger from Oppo should theoretically allow for slightly better-charging speeds.
On the other hand, at its demo presentation in 2019, Xiaomi’s 100W fast charger was able to recharge a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes. However, the company hasn’t officially announced its 100W fast charging solution for commerce use yet. The Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi’s flagship phone offers 50W fast charging and it's likely the company will announce it in sometime in the future.
According to a leak by tipster Ishan Agarwal, Realme is also developing its own fast charging solution dubbed Ultra Dart / Super Dart which will be capable of offering 120W fast charging speeds. It’s further speculated that Realme will announce this fast-charging technology sometime in July, as hinted by CEO Madhav Sheth. OnePlus is also expected to debut its 65W fast charging solution soon as the charging adapter was spotted passing through safety certification website.
With Oppo’s announcement scheduled for July 15, we’ll officially get to know how the 120W fast charging technology works, the apparent impact it has on battery, thermal management measures and more details around the charging speeds it offers.
