Recharging power is one of the hottest selling points for smartphones. And the BBK Electronics group, which has OnePlus, OPPO, and realme in its ranks, intends to take new steps in this area next year.
If the high-end smartphones of these manufacturers are already defending themselves very well on the speed of recharging, the Chinese conglomerate wants to go even faster in 2022 with 125 Watts charging.
Towards widespread 125 Watts charging
A few weeks ago, Xiaomi released its 11T Pro. A mid-range smartphone, one of the main advantages of which is that it can be recharged in just 20 minutes thanks to its 120 Watt charger. A record on the market, which the competition hopes to surpass without delay.
According to informant Mukul Sharma, the realm GT 2 Pro, OPPO Find X4 and OPPO Find X4 Pro, as well as the OnePlus 10 Pro will all be compatible with ultra-fast charging at 125 W. Still according to Sharma, OPPO has Also in its boxes is a new range of devices (the “N” series), supposedly more affordable than the Find series, and which would also benefit from this recharging power.
All of these new devices are expected to be released in the first half of 2022.
125 Watts charging power: where are we in the smartphone market?
We know that recharging a battery at very high power can have harmful consequences on its lifespan. To preserve it in the long term, it is better to opt for a slow recharge, and preferably on a battery that is not completely discharged. But it is obvious that having such power makes it possible to quickly recover the endurance necessary to last a day without worry. So where are the competitors from Xiaomi, OPPO, realme and OnePlus?
Currently, these manufacturers are at the top of the food chain in this area. Samsung, which, by the way, no longer provides a charger in the box of its smartphones, caps the charging power of its latest mobiles, for example, the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra, at 25 W.
Same story with Apple, which does not provide a charger either. At best, you can recharge your iPhone 13 Pro at 20 Watts. Google, and its very recent Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, for its part, caps the charging at 30 W (also without providing the power supply). In recent releases, only the Honor 50 stands out and allows charging at 66 W with its supplied block.
