Vivo Showcases World’s Fastest 120W Charging Technology For Smartphones
With the constantly increasing battery sizes in smartphones, the subsequent demand for a quick charging technology has increased. As a result, many major OEMs have incorporated some sort of fast charging in their devices. One such company is Chinese handset maker Vivo, which has announced with a post on Chinese social networking website Weibo; that it has successfully developed the world’s fastest 120W charging technology for smartphones.
Vivo 120W Charging
Vivo announced its 120W fast charging technology via a poster shared on Weibo. The company claims that it will allow charging a 4000mAh battery from 0 to 100 in around 13 minutes. For the battery to hit fifty percent capacity, the company claims it takes a 5-minute charge. This is faster than the 100W charging technology Xiaomi showcased a while ago; which allowed for a battery of same capacity to be fully charged in 17 minutes. Vivo has given its proprietary technology a name of FlashCharge 120W. The technology is expected to be showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai; which is scheduled to take place from June 26 to June 28 at the Shangai New International Expo Center. The post by Vivo also insinuates that the company may also be planning to showcase its first 5G smartphone at the event.
While the prospect of a super quick charging technology in smartphones seems exciting; it has been revealed that the Vivo FlashCharge 120W is still in development. The company may have to wait until later this year or early next year to launch a commercial device with the charging technology. It is also not known what Vivo has done to keep the heating that is akin to fast charging tech, at bay in its FlashCharge 120W technology. Unfortunately, details about it are not known at the moment but are expected to be revealed as we move closer to the event scheduled for next week.
