Earlier in January, Xiaomi and Motorola both took the wraps off their own true wireless charging technology, and it seems that Oppo doesn’t want to miss out on the fun as the company has since shown off its very own wireless charging technology as well. This was unveiled at the MWC Shanghai 2021 event where the company debuted the Oppo Wireless Air Charging technology.
In its current form, the wireless charging technology isn’t particularly fast as it can only output 7.5W of power. However, we suppose that’s not the point and its selling point would be the fact that it does not require wires or a charging pad for it to work. Oppo’s charging technology relies on magnetic resonance and as long as a compatible device is within 10cm of the charger, it will begin to charge.
This means that even if you lift your phone to check notifications or respond to a message, it will still charge. While some might view the 10cm distance to be a bit too near, there might be some who argue that it is “safer” as it means that the entire room won’t be filled with radio waves. The company does not mention when the charger will make its debut, but it might be worth keeping an eye out for.
What’s interesting is that bigger companies like Apple and Samsung have yet to launch their own truly wireless charging solutions, while these other companies have beaten them to the punch.
