The magnet based charging and accessory system MagSafe was one of the new features Apple introduced with the iPhone 12, and we’re now starting to see Android phone makers coming up with alternatives of their own.
Oppo would appear to be the latest manufacturer to the party, as per unofficial renders from Oyprice (via GSMArena). We can’t be sure where these pictures originate from, so treat them with a certain degree of caution, but it wouldn’t be a surprise for Oppo to look to expand its accessory offerings like this.
OyPrice recently revealed the renders of the new Oppo wireless charger that is soon set to be showcased. Looking at the same, it is obvious that Oppo’s take seems to be slim and resembles a conventional magnetic wireless charger, which could be similar to, if not slimmer than what Apple has to offer.
This is quite different from what we have seen with sister company Realme, which seems to have taken a boxy approach for the MagDart charger.
The detailed specifications and dimensions, such as the width are not yet known, but it is easy to tell that the charger will feature a Type-C port for connectivity at the bottom and an LED indicator. It does remain a mystery as to what speeds the Oppo wireless charging option might offer, but, given as to how Oppo has had a history of coming up with improved charging speeds, be it the 65W Air VOOC charger or the regular VOOC chargers, so it is expected that some decent speeds should be on offer.
For those of you unaware as to what MagSafe exactly is, it is a series of magnet that is present within the iPhone 12’s internal charging coil, capable of sensing other kinds of MagSafe accessories and can connect easily to the same.
