Recently, a report surfaced online that OPPO will be releasing a smartphone with wireless charging ability. Now a smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer that might have wireless charging capability appeared on benchmarking site GeekBench today.
The phone is codenamed OPPO “Poseidon” and is the first time we have heard about this device. From the GeekBench score sheet, it managed a score of 3810 and 10963 points on the single-core and multi-core tests which places it in the flagship level segment.
Under the hood, the OPPO Poseidon is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 which means it might support 5G network. The handset runs on Android 9 Pie likely with Color OS on top. Other storage specs and optical configuration is not known but considering it is a flagship level device, it might come with a triple rear camera setup.
Currently, no current or past released OPPO phones have Qi support though it filed a patent for a 15W wireless technology last year. OPPO recently joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) which is a group of companies that develop and promote the Qi wireless charging standard. OPPO and OnePlus operate under the same parent company and the later is already confirmed to bring a 5G smartphone on the first half of this year. Qualcomm also revealed that there will be 5G supported devices from OPPO this year.
Currently, there is no other information about the smartphone but according to some rumours, it could be the OPPO R19 or the OPPO FIND X2. For the design of the smartphone, we have to wait till it pops up in certification. OPPO has no invites or launch date for the device, but is expected to be launched in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event scheduled to take place from February 25 to February 28 in Barcelona, Spain.
