Realme teases the launch of its fastest charging tech yet at MWC 2022
As a member of the BBK Electonics conglomerate, Realme was one of the first brands to release a smartphone with a super-fast (at the time) charging rate of 65W. However, that was back in 2020, and now the company has indicated that it is time to look to the future and how this rate can be improved upon.
Obviously, given the time of year, MWC 2022 would be the best time to showcase such a cutting-edge advancement in mobile charging technology, and Realme has now indicated that that is exactly what it intends to do - accoriding to a new Weibo teaser, at least.
Realme has already technically unveiled 125W UltraDart tech, not to mention 50W wireless charging; however, it now hints that its new fastest "flash-charging" will outdo both on its reveal during the upcoming Barcelona-based conference.
The brand may wait until this February 28, 2022 event to finally reveal specs for this new standards (which, according to its new render, is to be wired) in full; however, Digital Chat Station has stepped in to supply these alleged details in advance.
The tiipster claims that the latest Realme developments in smartphone battery technology have resulted in a new "custom" 6C dual-cell BLP903 battery, which has a capacity of 4,500mAh and can charge up to 100% in about 6 minutes.
This new stat is to be delivered through a new VCK8HACH power brick. The charger allegedly tops out at a groundbreaking 20V/8A, and, thus, 160W at most; however, the system as a whole is limited to 150W. This still impressive figure dovetails with earlier rumors of the same coming from Realme's sister brand OPPO; however, it seems this brand will be first to launch the new tech.
Then again, as both UltraDart and MagDart have yet to be released in a market-ready smartphone, its 150W upgrade might yet be much further down the roadmap than its alleged 2022 debut might suggest.
