Following the launch of the OPPO Find X, the selfie-centric smartphone brand will introduce another mid-range smartphone to succeed the OPPO F7. Barely four months since the F7 was launched in Malaysia, OPPO Malaysia has just released a teaser for its upcoming OPPO F9.
OPPO is known for its insanely fast charging tech and they have recently extended this feature to its related OnePlus brand. Introduced as Dash Charge, OnePlus reckons that you can charge its new OnePlus 3 smartphone for a day’s worth of power with just a quick 30-minute charge.
To show off its charging speeds, OnePlus has released a comparison video against the Galaxy S7. Check out the video after the break.
A trade off using our handheld devices are the limitations in battery life and slow charging times that leave us awkward when left without. Leaps and bounds have been made in almost all other parts of tech but when it comes to batteries and charging, it moves on at a slower pace.
They don’t happen often but when they do, they make a big difference.
Qualcomm‘s pretty proud of it’s Quick Charging 2.0 tech, with the top tier smartphones using their chipset all packing the technology. To showcase it, they’ve taken the Motorola Nexus 6 and tested three of them with different chargers to show just how great it works; but OPPO isn’t impressed.
More after the break.
Smart phone these days are getting bigger in size and so is their appetite for power. If you glance at today’s flagship models, most of them are having batteries with an average of 3,000mAh capacities. Just two years ago, these are considered huge like the Motorola RAZR Maxx and the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Obviously with a larger battery, it takes longer to charge your smart phone up to 100%.
To address your waiting time problems, the new Oppo Find 7 comes with a unique charging feature called VOOC. This is their proprietary rapid charging technology which charges up 4X faster than conventional chargers. According to Oppo, it is capable of getting you from 0% to 75% battery life in just 30 minutes, while a quick 5 minutes charge is sufficient enough to supply 2 hours of talk time. To enable VOOC charging, you’ll need to charge the Find 7 with a special VOOC charger that comes with an integrated 7-pin microUSB cable.
On most smart phones, you’ll normally get a “fast charger” that pushes an output of 2.0 Amps. For VOOC, its charger pushes an epic max output of 4.5 Amps. That’s more than double and Oppo reckons that they have implemented its necessary fail safe protection layers to avoid overheating, overloading and long term battery degradation. When plugged in, the charger won’t charge 4.5 Amps throughout as it takes a multi-step approach as the battery level increases. This means it will charges up fairly quickly from 0% and then gradually slows down to 3.5A, followed by 2.0A and eventually to 1.0A as the battery is near to a full charge. To find out if VOOC is any better than other smart phone chargers, we’ve compared it against the Samsung Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 and the Redmi Note.

The Oppo Find 7 that was launched a few days back is quite a remarkable device. Sporting a high-end 2K Quad HD display and a powerful Quad-Core processor, the Find 7 has the right credentials to play in the same field as Samsung, Sony and HTC. To understand the new features better, we’ve managed to get some answers from Oppo’s Product Team.
