iQOO 5

Earlier today, OPPO announced that it will debut its 125W fast charging technology two days from now, while its Realme spin-off has also begun teasing its own 120W charging tech. Now, VIVO’s iQoo sub-brand has demoed its own 120W FlashCharge technology in China, and the numbers we saw during the presentation have got us excited.

The company is using a dual-battery design to implement the technology that relies on a proprietary power brick to provide a voltage of 20V backed by 6A current. It passes through a charge pump and then delivers 60W (5V/12A) power to each half of the battery packed inside a smartphone.

iQoo says the 120W FlashCharge fast charging technology can juice up a 4,000mAh battery from 0-to 50% mark in just 15 minutes. The charging speed flattens a bit afterward, taking a total of 15 minutes to fully charge the battery, which is still pretty darn amazing and faster than anything we’ve come across so far.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
