Realme is set to announce the Realme GT 2 and Realme GT 2 Pro at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2022, which kicks off next week in Barcelona, Spain. The phones were previously launched in China back in January.
Apparently, that’s not all. On top of Realme’s latest flagship smartphones, the former OPPO sub-brand and last year’s top smartphone vendor in the Philippines, according to Canalys, will launch the “world’s fastest smartphone charging” at MWC.

Recall that Realme announced its 125-watt UltraDart fast-charging technology last year. It was claimed to be capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery from 0% to 33% in just three minutes. It never made it to a commercial phone, though.
The latest rumors point to insane charging speeds between 150 and 165 watts for Realme’s next-gen charging solution. That makes sense, considering the RedMagic 7 Pro supports 135-watt charging but ships with a 165-watt charger. The Infinix Concept Phone 2021, on the other hand, comes with a 160-watt fast charger that can fully top up a 4,000mAh cell in about 10 minutes.
OPPO is reportedly working on a 160-watt solution as well, but it’s unlikely to show up on its forthcoming Find X5 Pro flagship. According to a listing posted on a Chinese certification website, OPPO’s 160-watt power adapter will have a maximum output of 20V at 8A current.
Whatever the case, hopefully, Realme’s ultra-fast charging tech will eventually be featured on future flagships from the company. Personally, we don’t think it will be too long before we see it on a mass-market device.
