- Oppo has released a 30-second clip showing off its new contactless charging tech in action.
- The demo shows the Oppo X 2021 rollable phone charging wirelessly in the air.
- The solution looks a bit different than what we’ve seen Xiaomi announce with Mi Air Charge.
It’s clear that smartphone makers are moving towards a completely wireless charging experience. Xiaomi recently showed off its Mi Air charging solution, followed by a similar announcement from Motorola. Now, Oppo has released a 30-second clip (see below) that shows its rollable concept phone charging wirelessly in the air.
Oppo had mentioned the new wireless charging tech yesterday in a press release teasing its MWC Shanghai announcements.
The company hasn’t offered any details, but the demo video shows the Oppo X 2021 rollable phone getting juiced up on what looks like a wireless charging mat. The device continues to charge when lifted off the mat, indicating some sort of air charging technology.
However, unlike Xiaomi’s solution, Oppo’s new charging method doesn’t seem like it has a wide coverage area. Mi Air Charge is designed to allow remote air-to-air charging within a radius of several meters. Oppo’s tech looks more restricted to the area above a wireless charging mat.
Nevertheless, we’re waiting for Oppo to share more details about its plans. For all you know, its tech is faster, more efficient, and ready to deploy, unlike Xiaomi’s offering which won’t see the light of day anytime soon.
We’ll update this article when we know more.
