11 things I learned about the smartphone that charges in under 15 minutes

I still can’t believe a smartphone’s battery can be recharged from empty to 100% in under 15 minutes, but now I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

Oppo announced its SuperVook fast-charging technology at MWC 2016, revealing that a 2,500 mAh battery could be recharged faster than anything we’ve seen before. In fact, a phone with this battery tech could be fully charged from empty in less time than it takes you to take your morning shower.

Naturally, I had to go and give the technology for a spin to find out how it works.

Incredible new tech can fully charge a smartphone in 15 minutes

In the future, we’ll never have to worry about charging our smartphones again because they’ll always be charging, even while they’re sitting in our pockets. And best of all, that future isn’t as far away as you might think. We recently covered mounting evidence that Apple is working with Energous to build long-distance wireless charging into an iPhone that might even launch in the next year or two. It will be the biggest disruption in the smartphone market since the first iPhone was unveiled more than seven years ago.

But Apple isn’t the only company working on disruptive new battery charging technology. While the Cupertino-based company may or may not be working with Energous behind closed doors, a Chinese smartphone maker just unveiled new tech that can fully charge a smartphone in just 15 minutes. More →

The dream of a stunning smartphone with a bezel-free display has finally been realized… and you’ll never get to enjoy it.

Have you ever heard of Oppo? If you live in the United States, the answer is probably “no” unless you’re a pretty hardcore Android fan. Based in Guangdong, China, Oppo Electronics is one of several smartphone vendors making waves in the East that haven’t yet washed ashore here in the West.

Meet the slimmest, sexiest smartphone you’ll never own

When it comes to smartphones, thin is in. Apple’s iPhone 6 wowed consumers when it was unveiled last month and it measured just 6.9mm thick. The phone feels incredible in the hand thanks to its slender profile, but a new smartphone just announced on Wednesday makes Apple’s latest iPhone look positively plump. More →

Oppo finally unveiled the Find 7 this week, the first ever smartphone that can take a 50-megapixel photos.

A closer look at the phone hardcore Android fans have been dying for

The Oppo Find 7 piqued our interested early last week when a leak claimed that the Android phone would come equipped with an epic 50-megapixel camera, and now we can take an even closer look at the device.

Oppo ‘Find 5’ smartphone packs 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core CPU into 6.65mm body

Oppo ‘Find 5’ smartphone packs 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core CPU into 6.65mm body

Oppo Find 5 Smartphone With 1080p Display

Most Android smartphones today have a screen sized somewhere between 4.3-inches and 4.7-inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. China’s Oppo Mobile CEO Chen Mingyong has just declared 720p obsolete, however. Chen claims his company’s upcoming Oppo “Find 5” smartphone will sport a 5-inch display running at 1080p resolution, effectively making it a phablet with 441 pixels per inch (ppi). That’s sharper than the iPhone 5‘s 326 PPI and the Nokia (NOK) Lumia 920’s 331 PPI. Even with such a large 1080p display, Oppo remains confident it can deliver the quad-core Find 5 in a design that is only 6.65mm thick. Only time will tell if the Oppo Find 5 lives up to its impressive spec sheet.
