Over the past years, we saw a surge among companies for developing the best fast-charging technology for smartphones. It had a slow start back in the days, but now it is quickly becoming one of the main priorities in the developments of new smartphones. After all, with bigger and bigger batteries being a great demand among consumers, everyone wants to make sure that they will charge fast. Currently, Oppo offers one of the most capable fast-charging technologies – the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge technology. It is capable of getting the 4,000mAh battery inside the Reno Ace from Zero to 100% in just 30 minutes. Other companies have been following with rumors of Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 10 flagship bearing 66W charging capabilities. Now, Oppo’s sister company, Realme is also showing a huge interest in the fast-charging segment with the development of a new technology dubbed Realme SuperDart.

Realme SuperDart is the company’s new ground-breaking 100W fast-charging technology
According to rumors, Oppo is racing to reach functional 100W fast-charging. Meanwhile, Realme is patenting the referred SuperDart technology that could be pretty much the new 100W standard. Or at least, anything above the already established 66W standard. According to the industry insider, Mukul Sharma, SuperDart is a direct response to Xiaomi’s 100W charging. Along with Realme, Oppo and Xiaomi, Vivo will return with a 120W Super FlashCharge standard in the next year.
We are very familiar to see Realme using some of Oppo’s technologies. However, this move indicates that the company is giving additional steps to separate its products from Oppo’s lineup. Realme is one of the most important companies in the mid-range segment. For that reason, we are curious to see what this represents for the mid-range segment. Perhaps in the next year, we will see flagships crossing the 100W barrier, while mid-range devices will finally go a step beyond the 20W.
