The charging speed of the OnePlus 10 Pro could eclipse the flagships from Apple, Samsung and Google

Tech Highlights:

  • If history is any indication, the handset will be fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chip. The phone is rumored to feature a 6.7-inches 120Hz screen and a bigger battery than the OnePlus 9 Pro’s 4,500mAh cell that supports 65W charging and requires 29 minutes for a full charge.
    OnePlus 10 Pro could offer 125W fast charging The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to pack a 5,000mAh battery and tipster Mukul Sharma (via Android Authority) says that it will support 125W fast charging. OnePlus’ sister company Oppo is also said to be working on several phones, including the Find X4, that will come with 125W charging support.

  • Supposed images of the OnePlus 10 Pro and its main features surfaced a few days ago, and now a leaker says that the handset would boast incredibly fast wired charging rates. OnePlus has announced that no T model would be released this year, implying that the OnePlus 10 series will be the company’s next flagship series. The maker appears to have chosen a Galaxy S21-style camera bump with three sensors.

Xiaomi’s 11T Pro currently leads the pack with 120W charging, and 125W would be a new record. That phone also has a 5,000mAh battery and with 120W charging, it goes from zero to full in 17 minutes. Oppo has already unveiled its 125W charger and it only needs 20 minutes to fully replenish a phone with a 4,000mAh battery.

While support for 125W charging would certainly look good on the specs sheet, there is a trade-off: a higher charging speed degrades the battery faster. Oppo’s 12W Flash Charge, for instance, will make a battery lose a fifth of its capacity in around two years. After all, there is a reason why the top flagship phones of 2021 like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max only support 25W and 27W charging, respectively. Google has taken an even more cautious approach with the Pixel 6.
