After teasing its new fast charging tech for a while, Vivo has finally made a new technology called Super FlashCharge 120W at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Shanghai.
The new technology comes with improved capabilities as compared to the company’s 44W ultra-fast flash charge and is touted to fully charge a smartphone with a 4,000mAh battery in just 13 minutes.
While 13 minutes is all you need to charge the Vivo device up to 100%, it can charge the device up to 50% in a mere five minutes.
The new 20V/6A fast-charging technology uses a customized USB Type-C cable along with an adaptor, which suggests that the new tech will work only with the provided cable and adaptor and for specific phones only.
Vivo’s Super FlashCharge 120W tech comprises an MCU controller for the fast charging functionality, monitoring the battery status, and adjusting the output power to avoid voltage overload and overheating problems.
Furthermore, the tech uses the Battery Management System (BMS) for security and ensures a longer battery life.
In addition to this, Vivo has unveiled the IQOO 5G smartphone at the event, which comes with the company’s Super FlashCharge 120W tech becoming the first smartphone to support it.
While not much is known about the Vivo IQOO 5G, the smartphone comes with liquid-cooled soaking tech and AR support and will be commercially available in Quarter 3, this year.
