Rumor: OPPO's New Flagship To Sport Extremely Fast Charging

Back in February 2016, OPPO announced its ‘VOOC Super Flash Charge’ at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and it seems like this technology may end up being implemented in one of the company’s devices soon. Do keep in mind that this is just a rumor for the time being, but according to the provided info, the first smartphone that may end up sporting OPPO’s VOOC Super Flash Charge fast charging is the OPPO Find 9, the company’s much-rumored flagship phablet which is expected to launch at some point in the future.

The OPPO Find 7 was announced way back in March of 2014, and the company did not release a premium phone since then. Based on the number of rumors we’ve seen thus far, we’ll take this info with a grain of salt, as every other OPPO Find 9 rumor that surfaced in the last couple of years was completely fake. In any case, what’s so special about the VOOC Super Flash Charge? Well, it can fully charge a smartphone in only 15 minutes, which is insanely fast, needless to say. OPPO’s smartphones are currently equipped with VOOC Flash Charge which utilizes 20W charging, and can charge up a smartphone from 0 to 75 percent in 30 minutes, while OnePlus devices use similar charging, though it’s called ‘Dash Charge’. In any case, VOOC Super Flash Charge is considerably faster, it lets you charge up a 2,500mAh battery from 0 to 45 percent in only 5, while it will take only 15 minutes to get it to 100 percent. According to the source, this technology has been improved by the company considerably since it was announced back in February 2016, and it may be ready for primetime.

If OPPO ends up including VOOC Super Flash Charge in one of its phones, that will be the fastest charging method in smartphones by far. VOOC is currently leading the pack, same as Dash Charge, and VOOC Super Flash Charge is considerably faster, so… it will be quite lonely on the top if it becomes a reality. In any case, as already mentioned, this is just a rumor at this point, OPPO did not release any official info thus far, but if there’s any truth to this, the company will probably announce something in the near future, stay tuned.
