Mobile World Congress 2016 is currently taking place in Barcelona, which means a huge number of people running around and gazing at fancy new technology and a lot of very shiny phones.
The latest tech breakthrough has to do with battery charging, something which is the bane of most smartphone owners lives. Chinese phone company Oppo claims that they can take a normal smartphone which is at 0% battery and get it back up to 100% in just 15 minutes!
A test was performed on stage with a Oppo device using the new SuperVOOC tech, filling up a 2500mAh battery in double quick time. In this case, the chip inside, the phone and the technology are all made by the company so they can push every element to its maximum potential, and it's also far from a real world example. Still the potential is there and if they can deliver these results we could be in for a revolution in charging.
Stay tuned for more from Mobile World Congress 2016.
