Realme was founded as a sub-brand of OPPO and after Oppo launched its super-fast charging technology, having the same technology for Realme makes sense. Just a day after OPPO announced it is super-fast wired charging technology and 65W AirVOOC wireless charging technology, Realme came up with is own 125W fast charging technology, called Realme 125W Ultra Dart fast charging. This didn't come up as a surprise as the company has already hinted about it a few weeks ago.
According to the company's claim, the technology is brand new and can charge a 4,000mAh battery up to 33 percent with wired charger in just 3 minutes. It is said that the company is using a three-way charging solution to increase speed. The three-way charge simultaneously pumps step-down voltage to maximize the charging power and also reduce the heat dissipation along the way. This three-way solution and the entire charging process has been optimizing to be used in smartphones, as these mobile phones are small devices and have their cooling requirements. This technology can result in an ultra-high conversion rate of 98 percent.
The new charging technology has a flip-chip structure that shortens the current path between the Type-C port and reduces the heat source. It also adopts an ultra-thin soaking plate to conduct the high-temperature efficiently. This helps to absorb and reduce the heat energy being produced during the charging process. As per the company, they have combined the thermal conductive gel and multi-layer graphite sheet, which lowers the temperate and keeps it under 40-degree Celsius.
To support this Realme 125W ultra dart fast charging technology, a dual Type-C charging cable is used. Also, this technology isn't limited to smartphones alone and can be used with other devices with high-power requirements such as notebooks. The technology is pretty much backward-compatible with Dart, Warp, VOOC, and SuperVOOC 2.0 charging technologies.
Google has published the latest Android platform distribution shares, unveiling that Marshmallow - which is the newest variant of its Android mobile operating system - is now powering 0.7% of all active Android devices across the globe. That's marginally more than the December figure of 0.5%.
Lollipop in the meantime got 3% increment in share, touching a total of 32.6% this month. But, KitKat retains the top spot with 36.1% Android market share, though there is a little bit decline from the 36.6% share reported in last month.
