When it comes to mobile fast charging technology, OPPO has consistently been the market leader. However, the Chinese OEM has not yet introduced its fast wireless charging technology. That’s about to change as a new AirVOOC wireless charger has been spotted at the Wireless Power Consortium.
OPPO is working on a second flagship phone called the OPPO Ace 2, the successor of last year’s Reno Ace. Rumors suggest that AirVOOC wireless charger would be unveiled along with it. As per the WPC documents, the wireless charger (with model number OAWV01) supports a maximum of 40W fast charging.
Renders of the device show an unusual oval-shape, part of which is recessed to hold the phone. It’s hard to comment on the build material, but it could be grippy rubber to keep the phone at a place. On the other side of the recess is a button-like circular module, the exact functions of which are unknown as of yet. Underneath, there are heat vents to prevent overheating while charging.
The appearance of this device at this very time makes it likely that we’ll see it launch alongside the OPPO Ace 2. It also indicates that the OPPO Ace 2 is very likely the first OPPO flagship to boast a wireless charging feature. The new handset launches on April 13.
Interestingly, this coincides with OnePlus also launching its very first wireless 30W charger that leaked a couple of days back.
