While manufacturers have been teasing about being able to gain eight hours of talk after charging a phone for 15 minutes for quite some time now, the reality is that no phone that has been released as of yet can fully charge a device in 15 minutes. Well, that is unless you consider what Oppo showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February of this year.
Oppo demonstrated a 2,500mAh power device that fully charged within 15 minutes. That’s technology every smartphone user on the planet needs right now. Our devices have become so much more sophisticated over the years that they’ve actually replaced our need for desktop computers. However, battery life will always be an issue with mobile devices tasked with performing like a laptop or PC.
With its SuperVOOC technology, Oppo aims to provide a solution to society’s need for quick-charging phones. It sure is set to rival the quick-charging technology of Qualcomm which a lot of smartphones now sport, but Oppo has yet to release a device with said capability.
Oppo hasn’t released a smartphone since 2014 and although rumors started circulating about an Oppo Find 9 with SuperVOOC technology, nothing has been confirmed officially.
So until a device is actually announced that supports SuperVOOC, all we’re hearing are just rumors at the moment. However, smartphone users looking to be able to use their phones with a minimum charging time of 15 minutes can look into many Android devices sporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0, and these include:
- ASUS Zenfone 3
- General Mobile GM 5+
- HTC A9 (available OTA)
- HTC 10
- LeTV MAX Pro
- LG G5
- LG V20
- Xiaomi Mi 5
- ZTE Axon 7
Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL also come with fast-charging capability. It’s certain that a quick-charging solution is here, it’s just a matter of when it will finally come.
