Yes, if a year ago all these demonstrations of various near-watt charges seemed something fantastic, then this year everything will become a reality. Today, several companies immediately introduced or pre-announced charging from 120 watts.
The first was Oppo, which stated that on July 15 it would fully present its 125 W fast-charging technology. It may be called SuperVOOC 3.0, but it may come up with a new name. Vivo is preparing a similar technology, and the IQOO brand today introduced FlashCharge 120W technology with a power of 120 watts, as you might guess. In addition, the other day, rumors spoke about the upcoming announcement of the 120-watt charging company Realme.
And such a unity is not surprising, because all these are companies and brands that are part of the BBK holding. Yes, Oppo, Vivo, and Realme are completely separate companies with their own structures, accounting and development, but they use a number of technologies together. And the difference of 5 W in this case is purely formal – it's all the same technology. OnePlus is also related to BBK, but this campaign has never pursued ultra-fast charges, so I think that even next year it may refrain from using such technologies.
What about the details. IQOO brand says that its FlashCharge 120W technology will allow you to charge your smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery in just 15 minutes, and half it will charge in 5 minutes. Yes, this is no longer fiction. It’s scary to imagine the sizes of the chargers, the temperature regime and currents, but, I think, in general, everything should be in order.
By the way, as in the case of the current 65-watt charges, if you suddenly did not know, in the case of using ultrafast memory smartphones always get two identical batteries. In the same flagships of Realme, Oppo and a number of other smartphones, two small identical batteries are hidden inside to parallelize the charging process. Otherwise, such crazy values in a smartphone simply can not be achieved.
I also remind you that Xiaomi is preparing a charge of either 100 or 120 watts, and Lenovo will already show a Legion gaming smartphone with a 90-watt charge on July 22.
