With its upcoming GT Neo 5, Realme is expected to soon claim Redmi’s wired charging speed crown with its upcoming GT Neo 5, according to a new report from the reliable Digital Chat Station. There will be two versions of this phone available, with the first offering a battery capacity of 4,600 mAh and support for massive 240W charging.

According to Chinese regulations, wireless charging speeds cannot exceed 50W, but thankfully, there are no such limits on wired charging. Hence, Chinese smartphone manufacturers are constantly striving to improve their fast charging systems so that it can compete with that of their international counterparts.

There is no doubt that this is a variant of what Oppo showed off back in February last year when it demoed their 240W charging system. For a while, it will probably remain exclusive to Realme until its parent companies, namely Oppo and OnePlus, take advantage of it, before it is rolled out to them as well.

Oppo showed a 240W charging tech in a demo, showing a 4,500 mAh battery that can be charged from 0 to 100% in 9 minutes. This technology will be available in the Realme GT Neo 5 as well, which will come with a 5,000 mAh battery and “just 150W charging support.”

The GT Neo 5 will probably have the same battery size as the GT Neo 5 as well, since the battery is only slightly larger than the GT Neo 5 and because of the months that have passed since the GT Neo 5 came out.

Considering the fact that Apple and Google’s current flagship phones take nearly two hours to do the same thing, it’s still nothing short of an impressive achievement even if it takes 10 minutes or so.

According to Oppo, its 150W system will last 1,600 charges before it depletes the battery health to 80% before it needs to be recharged again. There is a double life expectancy of this battery as compared to a regular battery. I think it is interesting that despite Realme being a part of Oppo (while it is still a separate entity), the 150W technology that it has used in the GT Neo 3 has a much lower guarantee of 1,000 charge cycles before it drops to 80% before it collapses.

Even though this is still admirable, it could be because of the price difference between the two brands that this is so.
