Shortening charging time for smartphones is a new race for smartphone manufacturers. After Oppo and Xiaomi, Vivo is the next Chinese manufacturer to participate in this race with Super FlashCharge 120W technology.
According to Vivo’s statement, their new technology can fully charge a battery capacity of 4,000 mAh in just 13 minutes.
A Vivo manager recently shared a video on Weibo showing that the test device is equipped with Super FlashCharge 120W technology that can charge from 10% to 14% battery in 16 seconds. However, the operating principle of this technology has not been announced by Vivo.
Super FlashCharge will become the fastest charging system for mobile devices if Vivo brings this technology to consumers. Currently, Vivo’s fastest charging device is the 44W Super FlashCharge system, which enables a 4,000 mAh battery charge in 45 minutes.
Prior to Vivo, Xiaomi also announced a 100W charging solution for smartphones, capable of filling up a 4,000 mAh battery in 17 minutes in March, but this technology has not yet been launched.
Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition is currently the fastest charging smartphone that users can own with Super Vooc charger capable of charging 3,400 mAh battery in 35 minutes.
Vivo is likely to show the 120W Super FlashCharge along with the company’s first 5G device at the Shanghai MWC show in China next week.
