30 W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 is one of Realme's main selling points for the Realme X2, with the company boasting that the device can reach 65% charge in just 30 minutes. However, that may longer not be the case following a new update.
Alex Alderson,

The Realme X2 has a lot going for it, not least its 64 MP main rear-facing camera, 4,000 mAh battery and Super AMOLED display. Realme boasts of 30 W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 allowing the device to reach 65% charge in 30 minutes too, a laudable achievement. While we are yet to review the handset, the charging capabilities of the Realme X2 apparently live up to the hype. That was until now, though.

Brought to our attention by @Sudhanshu1414, it seems that Realme has hampered the charging speed of the Realme X2. Tweeting to their followers, the self-styled tech-enthusiast claims that the Realme X2 can now only reach 50% charge after 30 minutes. Apparently, the change occurred following the January 2020 patch update. Videos validate this claim too.

Realme does not appear to have issued a comment on this yet. However, the company still lists the 65% charge claim on its Realme X2 product page. What is your experience with this? Have you noticed a reduction in charging speed of late on your Realme X2?
