Published

How do you interact with your friends, colleagues and family in these times of lockdown and social distancing?

For many, with work from home becoming part of “the new normal”, the shift to operating virtually has been gradual over the last 3 months and has now become so normal it has permeated into other aspects of our lives. It’s how cousins are getting together. It’s how many celebrated Ramadan in the wake of restricted movement and not being able to travel to be with family in these “unprecedented times”.

However, as many would know, video call and chat apps, like the ones we are using to interact with friends, colleagues and family, are not created equal.

In this episode, Chenze, Dickson and Nick explore the various options available.

Oppo teases 125W fast-charging, coming on July 15

Chinese device maker Oppo is gearing to announce an upgrade of its famous fast-charging technology this week.

As per a teaser posted on the brand’s Twitter account, Oppo will, on July 15th, reveal what it has been working on: 125W super fast-charging.

With the end of the current quarter expected to mark the beginning of the arrival of smartphones with 100W fast-charging technology, Oppo’s expected announcement comes just at the right time. Word on the street is that we will be seeing it soon on upcoming Oppo devices.

Oppo has for long been working on rapid charging technology. VOOC, its brand for such efforts, has been available on smartphones from the company for a few years now. Last year, the company announced SuperVOOC 2.0, a massive improvement of its already fast (then at 50W) proprietary fast-charging technology, when it launched its Reno Ace smartphone.

If SuperVOOC 2.0, which is 65W, is anything to go by, then we can expect charging speeds of just a quarter of an hour – or less – using a 125W charger. The 65W charger that enables SuperVOOC 2.0 takes just half an hour to fully juice up a 4,000mAh battery unit like the one on the Reno Ace.

Oppo is in good company with regards to taking fast-charging to the extremes.

Rival Xiaomi showcased a 100W fast-charging solution (Super Charge Turbo) that charges up a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes – up to 50% in just 7 minutes before “slowing down” a bit to top off the remaining half in 10 minutes – back in March.

Last month, another Chinese device maker, Vivo, demoed its own 120W fast-charging technology which fully charges a smartphone with a 4,000mAh battery in just 13 minutes.

Vivo’s sub-brand, iQOO, has also today announced its own 120W fast-charging technology that arrives this August in a new iQOO smartphone.
