Vivo released a teaser on its Weibo page, regarding what the hero product/technology that it will be showcasing at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, and from the looks of it, it might not just be its first 5G smartphone, but also a new fast-charging technology. Rumor has it that Vivo’s 120W super fast charging technology can fully juice up a phone with a 4,000mAh battery in a stunning 13mins. That is just crazy. In fact, a brand manager for Vivo IQOO claims 50% in 5 minutes. To date, Vivo’s fastest charging tech only boasts 44W, and while there are no further details available, we can expect to see it in action, whether in a prototype device, or in the company’s first 5G smartphone.

Following the success of the V11, the Vivo V15 Pro is the brand’s newest entry into the mid-range smartphone market. Armed with various improvements, and a number of firsts, this phone is the result of various innovations, ready to be experienced by those who demand absolute quality. Looks Good, But Awkward Too The Vivo V15 is a good looking device, well mostly. It uses what they call Spectrum Ripple Design, which basically mixes a ripple pattern with a gradient, which then reacts differently to light depending on the angle. Now that is beautiful, except that it also gets ruined by the triple camera module, which protrudes so much, that it makes the phone look awkward when flat on the ground. Well, they probably had to fit in that 48MP sensor somewhere, so that’s sort of the price you have to pay. Apart from that, the phone is an eye-candy, especially…
