Oppo is one of the manufacturers that designs and produces advanced smartphone models, offering new features, such as the new fast-charging technology.

The Chinese tech firm showcased its innovation during Barcelona’s recent Mobile World Congress (MWC) event. But, is it really efficient that Apple and Samsung need to replicate the new tech?

“We’re speeding up fast charging. OPPO 240W #SUPERVOOC Flash Charge delivers 100% battery in just 9 minutes, for record-breaking, industry-leading speed,” said the Chinese smartphone maker via its official tweet.

Right now, iPhone and Galaxy smartphones still don’t have this kind of charging feature. The models developed by Apple and Samsung still need more than one hour to have 100% battery power.

This is why some critics believe that the two giant tech firms will most likely copy the feature developed by Oppo. However, they didn’t say that Samsung and Apple will actually create the same version of the fast-charging tech.

Oppo’s Fast-Charging Tech

When Oppo unveiled its new smartphone charging feature, the fast-charging tech called a “150W SUPERVOOC flash charge.”

However, this once needs around 15 minutes to charge a smartphone completely. After that, Oppo announced a new version called “240W SUPERVOOC flash charge.”

This time, the second version can provide 100% battery power in just nine minutes. As of the moment, this innovation is considered the fastest charging feature for smartphones.

On the other hand, Oppo also explained that its fast-charging tech has five safety protection features, preventing any damage, such as overheating. Consumers no longer need to worry about their smartphone’s battery thanks to these safety functions.

In other news, some old Samsung Galaxy smartphones will soon have the advanced RAW camera mode feature. Meanwhile, the new Google Pixel Fast Emergency Dialer (FED) has been rolled out.
