Oppo has confirmed that it will launch its 125W super flash fast charge technology on July 14. However, its rival brand iQOO has gone ahead by revealing its FlashCharge 120W ultra-fast charging technology today. iQOO already offers some fast charging solutions like 33W, 44W, and 55W on their phones. Now, the Chinese brand has unveiled the ultra-fast 120W fast charging technology. It promises to charge 50% of a 4,000 mAh battery in just 5 minutes. The full charge of a cell with the same capacity will take only 15 minutes. Also Read - iQOO Z1x launched with Snapdragon 765G: Price, specifications and more
Vivo, the iQOO mother brand, presented its 120W FlashCharge technology at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai technology exhibition last year. However, its demonstration was somewhat technical, and the technology has not entered mass-production yet. Additionally, this new tech has yet to be included in any commercial smartphone. Therefore, today’s iQOO announcement can be called the world’s first 120W fast charging technology. Also Read - iQOO Z1x 5G confirmed to launch on July 9 with 120Hz punch-hole display: Check details

The source claims that this new smartphone appears to be capable of reaching an 80 percent charge in just minutes, and it may debut next month.
