Oppo has just officially announced the sequel to last year’s Oppo Reno Ace smartphone. Dubbed the Oppo Ace, the latest entrant drops the OPPO Reno moniker for a purer Oppo Ace 2, without the Reno. While the original Ace was famous for being the world’s fastest wired charging system in a market-ready smartphone, the Oppo Ace 2 takes on the likes of the Huawei P40 Pro with its 40W AirVOOC wireless charging, beating Samsung and Apple with their 15W and 7.5 wireless fast charging to the punch.
Notably, Oppo Ace 2 is Oppo’s first-ever smartphone to feature wireless fast charging. This the firm claims can deliver a full charge in 56 minutes. The device does skimp on wired charging, either, it gets a 65W wired charging, which presumably can fully jack up a 4,000mAh battery in 35 minutes. The Oppo Ace 2 also boasts of a 10W reverse wireless charging.
