A well-known leaker has posted a list of phones projected to upgrade to 125 watt (W) charging in 2022, and OnePlus' potentially upcoming flagship is on it. It is joined by others from sister brands such as Realme and OPPO. This new tip also purports to confirm the resurrection of one of the most innovative smartphone series of the last 10 years.

OPPO has made its next-gen 125W charging technology for smartphones official already, although there has been no guarantee that it will be on the market as part of new devices in 2022. Now, according to material posted by Mukul Sharma, there is to be not merely 1 but at least 5 of these in the coming year.

This, apparently, is because OPPO has shared the upgraded power standard with its subsidiary OnePlus, as well as its sister company Realme. This will enable 2 brands to launch their upcoming flagships, the GT 2 Pro and 10 Pro respectively, with improved charging specs.

Furthermore, OPPO is now projected to confer the same on its upcoming premium mid-ranger the Reno 8 Pro, not to mention at least 1 variant of its flagship Find X4 series. Not only that, but the Chinese-language screenshot that is the source of this new rumor unambiguously links the 'OPPO N reboot' (which may or may not launch with a return of its 360° camera module) with 125W charging.

Such a leap in battery-filling speeds could allow a 4,500mAh phone to charge in 20 minutes or less. Thus far, OPPO calls its new top-end standard "flash charging", although it might rebrand as UltraDart for Realme's purposes, whereas OnePlus will presumably unveil it as the next generation of its Warp Charge product line.
