Vivo-owned iQOO just unveiled its FlashCharge technology that allows smartphone batteries to be charged at 120W. It takes only five minutes to charge a 4,000mAh battery from zero to fifty percent and fifteen minutes to top it up entirely. It is unclear how long we have to wait before the tech makes its way to an iQOO smartphone.

Chinese OEMs have been at the forefront of developing fast charging technology for quite some time now. Speeds of up to 60W are par for the course at this point, with some OEMs even breaching the 100W mark. Vivo-owned iQOO has pushed the envelope even further with its 120W FlashCharge technology.

iQOO's announcement comes just hours after Realme teased its upcoming SuperDART technology that can charge devices at 120W. Incidentally, Oppo's SuperVOOC standard also promises 125W of raw power. However, Oppo and Realme are yet to demonstrate the technology publicly. iQOO, on the other hand, showed off FlashCharge's chops via Weibo. Under ideal conditions, it can fully charge a 4,000mAh smartphone battery in fifteen minutes.

It'll be a while before we see the tech in a commercial product, though. 120W is a ridiculous amount of power, and things can go south very quickly if something goes wrong. Now that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC is official, it shouldn't be long before we find the chip in an iQOO phone. That would serve as an excellent opportunity for the company to unveil FlashCharge.
