Vivo Files A Patent For Super Flashcharge

A new trademark application from vivo just popped up on EUIPO (European Intellectual Property Office). It appears that the company is readying a new fast charging tech under the name Super FlashCharge. It's safe to assume that the upcoming fast charging tech from vivo would reach 55W as per previous rumors. Perhaps vivo is readying its next high-end smartphone with competing charging tech on board. The highest we've seen so far is 65W on the Oppo Reno Ace but 55W is also pretty fast and should easily top a 4,000 mAh battery in about half an hour. Via

Iphone 11 Outscores Xs Max In Dxomark Camera Test Comes Close To The 11 Pro Max

The Apple iPhone 11 received an overall camera score of 109 from DxOMark, beating the iPhone XS Max in both the photo and video categories.

Two Oppo Phones Visit Geekbench One With Snapdragon 765 The Other With Helio P90

The Oppo PCLM50 passed through TENAA - this seems to be a new version of the Reno3 or the Reno3 Pro. There was some uncertainty about the chipset, but Geekbench just cleared that up, it is indeed a Snapdragon 765G, the same chipset as the Pro. The non-Pro model uses a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 and has a 64MP camera instead of 48MP as on the PCLM50. However, the screen diagonal matches the non-Pro model, so it's not 100% clear if this will have the "Pro" label or not.
