Oppo Reno Ace 2 will arrive in April with 65W fast charging

The Oppo Reno Ace was the first phone on the market with Super VOOC 2.0 that can reach 65W fast-charging speeds. Now Brian Shen, company VP, confirmed on Weibo the successor of the phone will arrive in April.

A mysterious Oppo device codenamed PDHM00 is likely the very same Oppo Reno Ace 2, and it was certified at 3C with a 65W fast charger.

The Oppo PDHM00 phone will (unsurprisingly) have 5G. At the CCC website, we see a 10V/6.5A charger with model number VCA7GACH, which is exactly the same brick that came in the first Oppo Reno Ace retail box. As we establish a 4,000 mAh battery can be filled 49% in ten minutes and it needs only 28 minutes to reach 100%.

Sadly, the phone never escaped China and the global Oppo fans had to wait for the Find X2 lineup to meet the game-changing fast charging speeds of 65W.

The Reno Ace 2 is expected to have the latest Snapdragon chipset and other neat specs like LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage, so it might be one very attractive package. Here's hoping it will get wider availability than its predecessor.

Xiaomi postpones the launch of Mi 10 in India due to COVID-19

Last week Xiaomi announced that it will launch the Mi 10 in India on March 31, but the company has now announced that the launch has been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

This decision comes after Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi imposed a 21-day nationwide lockdown in India to contain the spread of COVID-19, which claimed the lives of 11 people and infected more than 500 in the country at the time of writing this.

In addition to suspending the Mi 10 launch in India, Xiaomi has shut its Mi Home stores across the country and won't be offering home delivery temporarily. Previously, the company also postponed the first sale of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India, which was supposed to go live yesterday.

Xiaomi is the third smartphone brand after vivo and Realme to cancel product launches in India due to COVID-19. Both vivo and Realme were supposed to launch the V19 and Narzo 10 series, respectively, on March 26.
