Realme has registered the term MagDart with the EU's intellectual property office (EUIPO). This name seems to mimic that of Apple's new proprietary wireless charging system. Therefore, the Android OEM could be working on similar products, or magnetic accessories of some kind at least.

Apple has developed a new form of wireless charging for its iPhone 12 series, for which it has re-purposed its MagSafe trademark. Now, another electronics OEM, Realme, has developed one of its own of a very similar nature.

The company has applied to the EUIPO in order to claim this new term, MagDart, as its IP on July 14, 2021. It has done so under a category that includes wireless charging tech for smartphones, leading to speculation that it does indeed refer to a MagSafe clone.

The theory may also be supported by the presence of the Realme Dart range of Android-charging products. It had subsequently evolved into SuperDart and even UltraDart variants for its most premium smartphones; therefore, MagDart might be the logical next step. 

Should this be the case, and given Realme's relationship to OnePlus under the BBK Electronics umbrella, it is likely that now the former may soon secure "MagDart" as a trademark, it could soon become slapped on its version of the Warp Wireless Charger.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
