In a teaser, first shown by Gizmochina, the company claims to have announced a 120 W charging technology called Super FlashCharge that can charge a 4,000 mAh battery in about 13 minutes flat. We have seen Xiaomi show-off its 100W Super Charge Turbo technology that charged a demo unit with a 4,000 mAh battery from 0-100% in just 17 minutes. Lin Bin, President and co-founder of Xiaomi revealed this via a Weibo post. We are really looking forward to testing the 120W Super FlashCharge technology in the real world scenario. Fast charging a battery generally leads to the generation of more heat, and we still don't know how the company plans to tackle that aspect. The 120W super flashcharge is a huge improvement over the previous tech, though we are not sure when to see this in real usage. Hence, it is now the highest charging power and the fastest charging capacity in the smartphone industry.

This would be quite impressive to not only witness Vivo's 5G smartphone but also its FlashCharge innovation at MWC 2019 Shanghai. It should be remembered that even Xiaomi has not launched its fast charging technology on a commercial platform as yet.

To confirm the company's claims, a Vivo product manager shared a video on Weibo showcasing the charging in action, while also curiously scoring the video to Redbone's Come and Get Your Love. The company has also announced what could be the fastest charging system on a smartphone.
