The Chinese manufacturer Vivo is launching a new smartphone that breaks speed records thanks to its 200W charger which allows it to recharge in just 10 minutes.
Being able to fully charge your smartphone in a few minutes before leaving for work is extremely practical. The Chinese brand Vivo has understood this well by marketing its iQOO 10 Pro smartphone, a model capable of going from 0 to 100% battery in just 10 minutes, thanks to its 200 W charger.
Ever faster charging for our smartphones
While the fast charging of l’iPhone 13 Pro Max is capped at 27 W and that of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra does not exceed 45 W, other brands have chosen to push the limits in this area. We think, for example, of Xiaomi 11T Pro and its 120 W charger, to name a few. Today, it is the IQOO 10 Pro from the Chinese brand Vivo which breaks a new record.
Vivo’s marketing director in France, Alexis André, presents the phone as “the very first smartphone with 200W fast charging”. A model capable of going from “0 to 100% in 10 minutes”. For a car, it’s slow. For a smartphone, it’s extremely fast!
A speed that could worry people interested in the subject. Indeed, the safety and premature aging of batteries are often singled out by manufacturers who do not wish to offer such a recharging speed. Alexis André, however, specifies that the smartphone has been the subject of a “new battery design” and of “numerous protection technologies”.
Vivo also used a new 20W/10A GaN charger and a special 1.5 meter (USB-C) charging cable. Measures that should protect the smartphone from excessive heat. Regarding the life of the battery, it would keep at least 80% of its capacity after 1,600 charge cycles, or approximately four years before the battery begins to show signs of weakness.
The iQOO 10 Pro, a very high-end smartphone
The rest of the data sheet is that of a phone premium. There is a 6.78-inch 120 Hz AMOLED screen with a definition of 3,200 x 1,400 pixels, LTPO 3 technology for a variable refresh rate and a brightness capable of going up to 1,500 nits.
The onboard processor is a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1, from Qualcomm, accompanied by 8 or 12 GB of RAM depending on the configuration. On the photo side, it can count on a main sensor of 50 megapixels (f / 1.9) with stabilization, an ultra-wide-angle which is also 50 megapixels and a 14.6 megapixel telephoto sensor offering a zoom optical x3. For video, the iQOO 10 Pro can shoot in 8K at 30 frames per second.
If the brand is not yet very well known in our region, the Chinese manufacturer has recently shown its ambitions at the global level with the Vivo X80 Pro. The iQOOO 10 Pro will only be available in China, but could lay the foundations for a future Vivo smartphone launched in France.
