The much-awaited Mobile World Conference (MWC) Barcelona finally took place in person this year from 28th February to 3rd March 2022 after a virtual outing last year due to rampant global conditions. The MWC is the premier event for the world of technology, offering a space for tech professionals to share their thought leadership. The event provides a great networking opportunity for the movers and shakers of the tech industry and features exhibitions of the latest ground-breaking technology. For the first time since its inception as a brand, realme took to the main stage of the MWC to exhibit its 2022 line of exciting products. The realme philosophy of Dare to Leap and tech-democratization made it a perfect fit for the themes of the MWC 2022. The five themes that were the basis of the event included 5G Connect, Cloudnet, Fintech, Internet of Everything, and Tech Horizon. realme’s showcase at the MWC consisted of both products such as the realme GT 2 Pro, Buds Air 3, and Book Prime as well as new technology such as realme’s UltraDart Charging Infrastructure and UI 3.0.
realme GT Neo 3 with UltraDart Charging Architecture
In line with the spirit of the theme of Tech Horizon, realme introduced its latest breakthrough in charging technology by the name of UltraDart Charging Architecture (UDCA). This new technology goes beyond the limitations of previous iterations of realme’s charging architecture such as Dart Charge or SuperDart Charge that provided charging power of between 18W and 65W. The new UDCA technology provides support for charging powers between an astounding 100W and 200W while not compromising in advancements in safety, battery life, and charging speed. The first phone unveiled to be furnished with this technology was the realme GT Neo 3, which comes with 150W Ultradart charging. This allows you to fully charge your smartphone’s battery in an impressively low time of just 5 minutes.
The UDCA is able to achieve such an impressive speed by utilizing multi boost charge pumps to increase the charging current, which allows for a drastic increase in charging time. Most would wonder whether such high-power charging is safe to use. The UDCA helps keep the smartphone temperature at an optimal level while charging with its temperature management algorithm. On a more important note, realme’s UDCA comes with Ultra Battery protection which preserves your battery life. The industry-leading lithium batteries used in the UltraDart Charging Architecture retain 80% battery capacity even after over 1000 full charging cycles. While the GT Neo 3 is the first realme smartphone to incorporate this technology, it is far from being the last as with the belief that the bleeding edge of technology is for everyone, realme is set to begin mass production of this technology soon and incorporate it into their future products.
