These days the Shanghai Mobile World Congress 2021, where many companies, especially Chinese, are presenting their news in advance of what we will see in Spain at the MWC in Barcelona that will take place in June.
One of those that has announced new products is OPPO, which has shown its new contactless wireless charging system, similar to the one that Xiaomi and Motorola had already shown.
Wireless and contactless wireless charging
This new charging system has been demonstrated in the company’s new rolling mobile, the OPPO X 2021 that we saw a few weeks ago and that still has no marketing date.
As we can see in the published videos, the charging table, due to its considerable size, is capable of remotely charging a device simply by resting it on top. Even if we lift it, and tilt it, the system will continue to charge without interruption.
We do not know the maximum distance to which we can move away to continue charging the mobile since no images of this have been shown.
A feature of the future
Although we already see functional units with this new wireless charging system, we must be cautious with it. We do not know if it will be able to become something marketable and, if so, the price that not only compatible mobile phones will have, but also chargers, which are much more bulky than those we have at home today.
The OPPO entry also has a contactless wireless charging system: Wireless Air Charging appears first in The Free Android.
