VIVO’s 120W super flashcharge coming soon, capable of 100% charge in 13 minutes

Vivo to Showcase 120W Ultra Fast Charging at MWC 2019 Shanghai

Moreover, Vivo's 120w fast charging technology is claimed to charge a phone with a 4,000mAh battery in just 13 minutes. Lin Bin, President and co-founder of Xiaomi revealed this via a Weibo post. It can charge a smartphone battery 4000 mAh c 0% to 50% in 5 minutes, and from 51% to 100% in 8 minutes.

Referred to as Super FlashChage, the technology is created to produce 120 W of electrical power. Now, it'd be interesting to see who come first with the fastest solution for fast-charging technology.

Vivo is expected to showcase the technology at the Shanghai leg of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) that commences on 26 June. It is worth noting that these insanely fast charging technologies are still more theoretical than practical, and will have to undergo several tests and optimizations before they make it to final products. This much amount of power is likely to leapfrog any other fast charging solution now available in the market.

The new technology was showcased on the Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Vivo now offers the fastest fast-charging technology on the Vivo iQOO flagship smartphone. Also, this kind of technology usually requires special hardware both in the phone and the charger, which means no other Vivo phones will be able to charge at such high-speeds except the ones that Vivo releases with the compatibility baked in. Vivo is also the latest to join this race with companies like OnePlus, Huawei and Oppo. The Vivo Apex 2019 games an all-display design without a score or a punch-hole and packs a dual camera setup at the back, and connecting pins at the backside for transferring of data and charging.

Has Snapdragon 855 SoC, 256GB of capacity, and 12GB RAM.
