Amidst smartphones battling it out for the largest screens, fastest benchmarks and best camera, a relatively silent battle has been brewing for charging speeds. With a number of brands competing for the fastest charging solutions for their phone, both wired and wireless, charging speeds have gone up remarkably in the last year. One of the brands in the race is Oppo, which now apparently is close to reaching a new milestone. Also Read - Oppo to launch another premium phone with Reno 4 series in India
As per a leakster on Weibo, the Chinese company will be introducing its SuperVOOC 3.0 technology with 80W charging in 2021. Currently, Oppo has a SuperVOOC 2.0 65W fast-charging system in the Oppo Ace 2, Find X2, and Find X2 Pro. The same tech is also used by sub-brand Realme under the SuperDart Flash Charge banner.

While not confirmed, the phone could also put in a fast wireless charging mechanism to go with the wired charging speeds. The recently launched OnePlus 8 Pro did just that, offering 30W wireless fast charging along with its wired charging capabilities. Oppo too has a 30W wireless charging tech. It was used by the brand on the Oppo Reno Ace 2 available only in China as of now. The new technology will go up against the 100W and 120W fast charging technology being developed at Xiaomi, another Chinese brand.
