    Oppo’s The Flash Initiative

Oppo is one of the few tech companies that is doing some great advancements with its charging technology. The company at MWCS on Tuesday announced a program called The Flash Initiative. It is aiming to expand its proprietary VOOC flash charging technology to automobiles, public spaces, and charging accessories. Moreover, the company also partnered with Anker, FAW-Volkswagen, and NXP Semiconductors on the new move.

Oppo’s VOOC fast charging is the latest edition in which it claims to top a battery up in under 20 minutes. To recall, it first launched back in 2014. It featured over 30 smartphone models. In addition, the company claims it is used by over 175 million users around the globe. Moreover, it offers a faster charging experience by using a specific charging adapter.

Each partner manufacturer under the new initiative will work with proprietary technical designs developed by Oppo. Moreover, the Certification lab China Telecommunication Technology Laboratory (CTTL) will test and certify partners for the program, the company said in a statement.

For initial partnership results, Anker will bring new charging accessories supporting Oppo’s VOOC flash charging to its customers. Whereas, FAW-Volkswagen will incorporate rapid charging into Volkswagen cars made in China. On the other hand, NXP Semiconductors will bring VOOC flash charging to smart and connected solutions. It will be for sectors including smart cities and industrial, automotive, mobile, and smart homes.

Additionally, the company competes against Qualcomm. The latter offers its Quick Charge fast charging technologies to various smartphone manufacturers using Snapdragon SoCs globally. Similar to Oppo, its siblings including OnePlus and Realme also have their own proprietary technologies to provide faster-charging experiences to their customers.

With new partners on board, the company’s proprietary technologies could reach more people. However, there is no timeline on when the new products by the partners will hit the market. It is also likely that the products could initially be limited to China.

Oppo also launched its 65W AirVOOC fast wireless charging technology and a 50W mini SuperVOOC flash charger that it is showcasing at the MWCS this week.
