realme has just announced on Weibo that it will introduce a 5G smartphone with a 125W fast-charging solution. This follows yesterday’s announcement from OPPO that it will unveil its own 125W fast-charging technology.

The company’s Chief Marketing Officer Xu Qi Chase posted the same image on his personal profile with the caption ‘1111101’ which is binary for 125.

vivo’s iQOO has also just recently showcased its own Super FlashCharge 120W. The technology works by splitting the current into two equal halves which fills up two separate cells. Whether we see this on OPPO and realme’s solution, we’ll have to wait and see.

What’s more interesting about the timing is that realme Indonesia has also revealed a 6000mAh smartphone which is coming soon. Whether the two are connected, we’ll still have to find out.
