Smartphone maker OPPO has finally embraced wireless charging and for its first phone that carries such technology, the Ace 2 has already made it with the top players.
The phone boasts its new AirVOOC tech that makes wireless charging possible. With its dedicated dock and charger, it’s capable of receiving 40W of voltage so fully charging the Ace 2 should be faster. For comparison, Huawei’s P40 Pro has the same 40W maximum, OnePlus at 30W, and Apple at 7.5W. With these numbers, you know that the company really wanted to make its presence known for wireless charging.
Even its wired charging has impressive numbers. When charged with its included cable and adapter, its 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 is able to charge the phone quickly for shorter waiting periods.
In terms of design, it carries a 6.55-inch Full HD+ OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, there’s an in-display fingerprint scanner for security, and a 16-megapixel hole-punch selfie shooter on the upper left corner of the screen.
Meanwhile, a quad-camera setup is at the back which is headlined by the main 48-megapixel shooter, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel portrait, and a depth sensor. It will come in Moon Rock Ash and Fantasy Purple colors.
Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with RAM choices between 8GB and 12GB. One can also choose between 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. As for battery, its 4000mAh capacity features reverse wireless charging so you can share power to other compatible devices.
