Rumor | Realme's upcoming power-brick upgrade is even faster than previously thought
Realme has hyped its MWC 2022 appearance with claims that it will bring a new top-end mobile power standard to the event. The OEM has also hinted that the charger in question will go even faster than its immediate predecessor, UltraDart charging, rated for up to 125 watts (W).
The eminent leaker Digital Chat Station asserts that this event will unveil a new VCK8HACH power brick, which can work with a compatible 4,500mAh battery to charge a phone in just about 6 minutes. This impressive rate would indeed be the fastest on Earth at launch; however, according to GizmoChina, Realme might reach even further beyond current limits with its new tech.
The blog has uploaded a photo (the provenance of which goes unspecified) allegedly showing the VCK8HACH from an angle at which the brick's regulatory information is visible. It specifies a 20V/8.25A output toward the start of this disclosure, the basis of Digital Chat Station's prediction that the accessory tops out at 150W in conjunction with the new battery.
However, according to the rest of the text, Digital Chat Station stopped reading there, as it goes on to specify a maximal profile of no less than 20V/10A - or ~200W, in other words. Realme's power accessory is also apparently compatible with the Power Delivery standard of up to 45W - and with its BBK Electronic umbrella's more up-to-date 80W (or 11V/7.3A) profile.
Should this new leak prove accurate, it will be interesting to see how it will be priced, not to mention whether it will be shipped free with a phone or not. Currently, the "GT Neo3" is tipped as the 2022 device most likely to come with it in the box should that be the case.
