Vivo teases world’s fastest 120W Super FlashCharge technology


The race to launch insanely fast charging technologies is heating up. The fastest battery charging tech from the competition comes from Huawei, but the 55W SuperCharge will be exclusive to the Mate X foldable phone.

Vivo is likely to show Super FlashCharge 120W at subsequent week's MWC Shanghai, together with its first 5G device.

Vivo made the announcement on Weibo where it teases the new fast charging technology. It can charge a smartphone battery 4000 mAh c 0% to 50% in 5 minutes, and from 51% to 100% in 8 minutes.

England will face Cameroon in the last 16, with a potential quarter-final against Norway or Australia ahead. With an extra goal from Tobin Heath, that was later changed to a Swedish own-goal, the US won 2-0.

That is insane fast, right?

Recently Vivo has also launched its iQOO gaming smartphone that came with fast charging with 4000mAh battery capacity and the device takes only 45 minutes to get completely charge via its 44W fast charging technology. Isn't that unbelievable? Well, with this announcement, questions like "Is it safe for phones?" have started emerging & it's normal since this is an extremely fast charging technology & we have no idea what impact this would have on the phone's battery. A charger that can go up to 100W isn't enough to charge a phone at that speed. So far, the fastest charging tech is with Oppo that has a 50W support in its Oppo R17 Pro smartphone. The video showcases a phone charging rapidly from about 10% to 14% in just about 16 seconds. However, fast charging has proved to be boom as battery. The handset features a rear dual camera setup. The company will showcase the technology at the MWC Shanghai 2019 next week.

Vivo disclosed the Apex 2019 idea smartphone in January this year, and the generation variant of the smartphone could probably be exhibited next week.
