Even though OPPO didn’t announce any smartphone at MWC 2016, the company did unveil two new technologies – Super VOOC Flash Charge and SmartSensor image stabilization.
The Super VOOC Flash Charge is an improved version of the original VOOC Flash Charge. The original VOOC Flash Charge was pretty quick already, but the Super VOOC Flash Charge now provides even faster charging speed.
The original VOOC Flash Charge allows users to get 2 hours of talk time after 5 minutes of charging, while the Super VOOC Flash Charge now allows users to get a full 10 hours of talk time with only 5 minutes of charging, and filling a 2,500 mAh battery in only 15 minutes.
The Super VOOC Flash Charge uses a 5V low-voltage pulse-charge algorithm, ensuring a low-temperature charge that’s safe for the battery. It supports both Micro USB or type-C interfaces.
As for the SmartSensor image stabilization, OPPO claims that it is the smallest optical image stabilization in the world. It allows for image stabilization on three axes instead of two, pitch, yaw and the all-important roll. Making split-second adjustments with its comb-shaped monocrystalline silicon MEMS, SmartSensor achieves full three-axis image stabilization in a mere 15 milliseconds.
SmartSensor uses a voltage-driven sensor, reducing power consumption to as low as 10 milliwatts, 50 times less than the power consumption of lens-based solutions.
Can it beat the SteadyShot technology from Sony? Well, only time will tell the truth.
