Although Mr. Sheth did not specifically say that this device will first launch in Europe, his tweet hinted that. He shared an image of the 125W Ultra Dart fast charger with the phrase “We’re planning #FAS7ER things for @realmeeurope – so stay tuned!”. This suggests that this device will first arrive in Europe.

It is still unclear when this new Realme flagship will be released to the market. According to Realme, for a 4000 mAh battery, this charger will get to 33% in just 3 minutes. This charger also supports multiple fast-charging protocols including fast charging for high-power devices such as laptops. According to Realme, this device offers an all-round fast charging.
It is backward compatible with VOOC, Dart, Warp, SuperVOOC, SuperVOOC 2.0, and SuperDart fast charging protocols. It also supports up to 125W PPS protocol fast charging, 65W PD protocol fast charging, and 36W QC protocol fast charging. In addition, it is also compatible with the universal 100-240V ultra-wide voltage input.
It is worth mentioning that the new Realme Q series will be officially released on the 13th of next month. The smartphone will use a dual-cell 65W flash charging, an OLED punch-hole screen, and support for an on-screen fingerprint sensor.
