OPPO will not include chargers for some phones starting next year: company releases statement

At the OPPO Reno8 series launch event, Billy Zhang, OPPO's vice president of overseas sales and service, said the company will not include chargers in the retail packaging of "several products" next year. The charging adapter does not come in the box. OPPO has become the only brand in the world to unbox chargers after Apple and Samsung. We can expect other brands to slowly follow the same path in the future.

VOOC is OPPO's proprietary charging solution, they introduce new fast charging solutions from time to time, it requires a new charging adapter to take advantage of the speed. So it remains to be seen whether the charger phase-out will be limited to entry-level and mid-range phones, or even extend to flagship phones.

OPPO mentioned that starting next year, it will remove the charger from the box of several products. The company's executive didn't mention which phones didn't come with a charging adapter in the box.

"We will have out-of-the-box chargers for several products over the next year. We have a plan. It's not that easy for consumers to get [SuperVOOC chargers], so we have to put it on the table," the company said in a statement. In the box. However, as we continue to expand our business operations, we want to get the chargers out of the box and in stores so our users can buy them and keep using them even as they upgrade their devices.”

This is big news from OPPO, considering that the brand has been talking about its fast charging solution and how it is always faster than Samsung Apple, which traditionally offers maximum speeds of 45W or 20W.

The recently launched Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro support 80W SuperVOOC, which should be enough to power phones in the near future. OPPO phones do support USB Power Delivery, albeit at a lower power level than VOOC implementations, so users can use many third-party charging adapters on the market.
