It's only been three years since OPPO advertised its mobiles in China with the slogan Cinco minutes of charging give you two hours of talk . Aware that the battery has traditionally been one of the weak spots of mobiles, the Shenzhen brand bet seamlessly on this component and developed its own fast charge: VOOC. The goal was to prevent users more attached to the device from having to charge with an external battery.
then began a race to develop new battery technologies and the rest of the manufacturers soon gave it scope. So, last year, he took a leap and premiered the 50W SuperVOOC on the OPPO RX17Pro. Instead of a battery, it incorporated two that charge in parallel in just 40 minutes. But, once again, Huawei hit him with the 40W system that premiered the Mate 20 Pro, so OPPO has had to go a little further in the SuperVOOC 2.0 which includes the latest member of the Reno family, the Reno Ace.
Vivo has already shown its 120W charge. He is still in phase experiments. Your battery charges in just 13 minutes
This device, which copies the shapes of its predecessors and forgets the anterior shark fin-shaped camera of the Reno Zoom 10X and the Reno 2, debuts a 65W charge that, for the moment, is unrivaled in the market. THE COUNTRY has been able to test it and has verified that the 4,000 mAh battery. -a standard capacity for mobiles of its size- goes from zero to 100% in just 29 minutes. And soon that time will be too long, because Vivo - which also belongs to the BBK conglomerate, along with OPPO, OnePlus and Realme - has already shown its 120W load. It is still in the experimental phase, but if next year it is included in a terminal of similar characteristics to those of the Reno Ace, its battery will be fully charged in just 13 minutes.
No doubt, Chinese brands have an advantage in this regard, because the Asian giant has become the mecca of batteries. Not for nothing, it already produces 60% of the lithium ones that mount the mobiles. That is largely due to the Government's interest in reducing dependence on fossil fuels and its commitment to electric mobility. "It is a good incentive to invest in the development of new technologies. We're moving forward, but the turning point won't come until we make solid batteries come true. That may be the time when our lives change radically again," advances Yao Shijing, vice president of Tafel, one of China's leading battery manufacturers. According to him, the experience offered by those Nokia phones that lasted a week without charging them could be just around the corner.

Until then, the goal is for them to last a full day and to load as soon as possible. OpPO Reno Ace achieves the first thing with note, but excels in the latter. In addition, it does not forget the other components and incorporates the elements of the high-end: the Snapdragon 855+ processor accompanied by up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage, a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a drop-shaped notch, and a main camera with four different lenses -8-megapixel wide-angle, 48 mpx standard, a telephoto with two 13 mpx magnifications, and a sensor to add depth-of-field data to improve portrait mode. Anyone who sees similarities with the OnePlus 7 or Realme X2 Pro does not delira, because the resemblances are more than reasonable,
However, OPPO has decided to bet on the best value for money, and in China the Reno Ace can be purchased from 3,199 yuan (420 euros at a change). It does not yet have a release date in Spain, nor is it known the price at which it will, but everything points to it becoming a serious contender for the growing catalog of Chinese mobiles that offer high-end specifications with a very tight price. "The competition ultimately benefits the consumer," they say from the brand,
