VOOC charging is OPPO’s proprietary fast charging technology that allow OPPO phones to support 20W fast charging. With the launch of the OPPO Find X Lamborghini Edition, the Chinese manufacturer had introduced Super VOOC charging technology that supports 50W charging. Since Realme is a sub-brand of OPPO, it is very likely that Realme phones at some point will carry support for VOOC charging.
OPPO has launched many phones with VOOC charging technology in China in the recent years. However, the OPPO F9 Pro is the first ever phone in India to support VOOC charging. There is no information available on the specifications of the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro. Realme may want to make the VOOC charging technology available on the Realme 3 Pro. The Realme 3 series is expected to feature waterdrop notch screen. Like the Realme 2 Pro, the Pro variant of Realme 3 may feature up to 8 GB of RAM.
The Realme phones such as Realme C1, Realme 2 and Realme 2 Pro are available with attractive discounts during on the ongoing festive season sale on Flipkart. Sheth has hinted that the pricing of the Realme phones may increase after the festive season.
