Final month Oppo announced its latest flagship phone, the Reno Ace, with a headline feature of the world’s fastest fast-cost solution yet. The Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charger is claimed to be able to cost the Reno Ace’s 4,000mAh battery in half an hour, which would put it ahead of all other competing technology on the market.
Fast-charging tech is a particular obsession of Oppos. The phone overthrown by the Reno Ace is the same company’s Find X Lamborghini, which I found stuffed its 3,400mAh battery in 35 minutes. Super VOOC makes use of a dual-cell design to allow the battery to succeed in optimum charging speeds at excessive currents without overheating. The Reno Ace did get warm while I charged it, however, not unusually so. The 65W charger can also be impressively small because of the use of gallium nitride.
In any other case, the Reno Ace is a reasonably standard flagship telephone that shares so much in frequent with the very good OnePlus 7T. Each phone has a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a 20:9 6.5-inch 1080p show with a small notch and a quick 90Hz refresh rate, and a 48-megapixel excellent digicam with Sony’s IMX586 sensor. The Reno Ace is cheaper, although beginning at 2,999 yuan (~$420) in China for a model with 8GB of RAM and also 128GB of storage.
Oppo’s most direct competitors, sarcastically sufficient, now comes from Realme — an organization underneath the same BBK umbrella and which began out as an Oppo sub-model. The new Realme X2 Pro has a near-similar industrial design, software, and specs, besides it has a 64-megapixel camera, an additional macro lens, and barely slower 50W Tremendous VOOC charging. It undercuts the Reno Ace by 300 yuan ($43) for the entry-degree model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, with the equal 8GB/128GB model nonetheless coming in at 100 yuan ($14) cheaper for a phone that you would possibly prefer.
