Vivo has filed to obtain a trademark for the Super Flashcharge moniker from the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). As the name is abundantly clear, Vivo will use Super Flashcharge as a marketing name for its proprietary charging technology for upcoming phones. There is no word on when and on which phones the Super Flashchat technology will debut, but according to previous certifications, it could be a 55W charging standard that will be spot on for upcoming phones with model number V5550L0A0-CN earlier this year.
The Chinese smartphone maker has filed two separate trademark applications for the name Super FlashCharge before EUIPO. The EUIPO trademark filing, both of which were filed on 21 January, was first noticed by tipster Mukul Sharma. So far, Vivo’s trademark status has been listed as an “application under examination” on the EUIPO database. Unfortunately, Vivo’s applications do not reveal anything special like whatsapp or net power given by the Super FlashChad-compatible charger.
However, the Super FlashCharge technology is said to deliver an output of 55W. To recall, an as-yet-announced Vivo phone carrying the model number V5550L0A0-CN received 3C certification in China earlier this month. The 3C database mentions 11V / 5A as the rated power output, which translates to 55W. It is being said that Vivo V5550L0A0-CN can debut as a new gaming-centric phone from Vivo’s iQoo subsidiary. The phone is said to have 5G support, and this rumor may be revealed as the Snapdragon 865 SoC-powered iQoo flagship that has recently surfaced online. To recall, iQoo told Gadgets 360 in a recent interview that the company will launch a 5G flagship phone running Android 10 in India next month. If the speculation comes true, the upcoming iQoo flagship will be the first phone to support Vivo’s 55W Super Flashcharge technology.
