Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo unveiled the technology that charges smartphone in fifteen minutes. The company declared this latest innovation at the Mobile World Congress held on Tuesday.
Oppo mentioned that its “SuperVOOC” technology will charge a dead 2,500mAh battery to 100 percent, and the technology will work on
universal micro-USB and USB Type-C cables. It is the fastest charging device after Qualcomm’s “Quick Charge 3.0” technology, which claims to charge smartphones from 0% to 80% in 35 minutes.
Super VOOC Flash Charge uses a 5V low-voltage pulse-charge algorithm that is safe for the battery. It dynamically regulates the current to charge a phone in a short period. The customised ‘super battery’, adapter, cable and connector are made using premium, military-grade materials. These chargers are compatible with smartphones that have Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and they don’t work on non-Oppo smartphones.
Oppo has sold 50 million smartphones in 2015 and operates the OnePlus brand, which is one of the largest Chinese smartphone manufacturers behind Huawei and Xiaomi. Oppo is soon launching its F1 Plus smartphone in India this April. The phone would be priced at Rs. 26,990. It features a 5.5 inch full HD display, Octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB internal storage.
