After Realme, Oppo Also Working on MagSafe Alternative Called MagVOOC

Future Oppo devices are likely to use magnetic charging technology once announced.

Apple, last year, unveiled its magnetic wireless charging solution called MagSafe. The charging coil is attached to the back of the iPhone with the help of its built-in magnets to charge the device at up to 15W wireless charging. Realme took some inspiration and recently unveiled MagDart wireless charging for Android devices. The company launched two MagDart devices that charge phones at 15W and 50W speeds. Following Realme is its former parent company Oppo, which is working on similar tech. Oppo could soon unveil its MagVOOC charging technology, according to a certification website.

Oppo could soon unveil MagVOOC charging technology. The charging mechanism uses the device’s magnets to wireless charge a phone with a coil on the back. Oppo has filed a trademark for MagVOOC charging.

The trademark listing does not reveal much about the charging mechanism in detail. That being said, we can expect it to be fairly similar to what Realme offers. This means that Oppo could unveil MagVOOC with 50W and 15W magnetic charging speeds. The company could also launch special charging devices that will feature the technology.

Realme launched a 50W MagDart device that attaches to the back of the phone for charging wirelessly. It can reportedly charge a 4,500 mAh battery up to 20 per cent in just five minutes and completely within an hour. The 50W magnetic charger also comes with an active air cooling system aimed at maintaining the mainboard and coil temperatures at safe levels.

Realme also has a 15W charging puck that is similar to what Apple offers for the iPhone 12 series. However, the Realme MagDart charger is only 3.9mm thick, which is about 26.4 per cent thinner than Apple’s MagSafe charger.

Future Oppo devices are likely to use magnetic charging technology once announced. The company has not made any official announcement around the launch of MagVOOC at the time of writing this. We will keep our readers posted about any new information once available.
