Chinese smartphone maker iQOO, a Vivo brand, unveiled its 120W ultra-fast charging technology at a tech briefing today and demonstrated the charging speed on a phone.
IQOO said it will mass-produce the phone while hinting that it could be released in August.
The phone can be charged to 50% in 5 minutes and the entire battery in 15 minutes, the company said.
Taking into account the heat and stability reasons, IQOO has achieved 120W of charging power by converting 20V×6A to 10V×12A through custom cells and charging chips.
The charger also supports intelligent temperature control to reduce heat generation.
In the mobile phone, IQOO increased the graphite cooling film, improved superconducting VC liquid cooling system, high thermal conductivity gel, and other heat dissipation methods to ensure 120W fast charging at the same time to reduce heat and improve stability.
Earlier today, another Chinese smartphone maker OPPO announced that it will unveil its 125W Super Flash Charging technology on July 15 at 15:00.
This will be the fastest charging speed and highest charging power in the mobile phone industry.
Previously, OPPO had already mass-produced 65W Super Flash Charger, and it was first adopted by the OPPO Reno Ace released in October last year.
The device's 4,000mAh battery took just 30 minutes to fully charge, making it the fastest charging phone with the same battery capacity.
