Oppo has been one of the most innovative companies in fast charging technologies for its devices, launching its VOOC technology in 2014.
Today at MWC Shanghai 2021, Oppo announced new products and partnerships to expand its ecosystem.
One of the announcements has been the Flash Initiative, which is based on Oppo’s Flash VOOC charging technology and seeks to license it to other manufacturers to bring fast charging to more consumers.
Among them, FAW-Volkswagen, a joint venture between the Chinese group FAW and Volkswagen, which manufactures and sells Volkswagen and Audi cars in China, will equip the upcoming vehicles with fast chargers.
Anker will also manufacture new portable fast chargers and NXP Semiconductors will create a public charging network.
Oppo also introduced its 125W Flash charger that can recharge a phone in less than 20 minutes, the 65W Air VOOC to wirelessly charge a 4,000mAh battery in 30 minutes and the 50W Mini Super VOOC charger that only has 10mm of thickness.
While these products were unveiled in July, a new contactless air wireless charging concept with up to 7.5W of charging power was also unveiled today.
This latest innovation uses MRI to eliminate some of the drawbacks of other wireless charging technologies.
