Xiaomi recently launched its flagship Mi 10 series at a launch event in China. Along with the new smartphones, the company launched a boatload of new accessories, including two wireless chargers, a smartphone cooler, and two 65-watt wired chargers. Among the two 65-watt chargers was a new GaN charger, which uses Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors that are more efficient than silicon, can sustain higher voltages, run current faster, and help give the charger a smaller form factor. Now, it seems like Xiaomi’s competitor Realme is also planning to launch a similar GaN charger at the company’s upcoming Realme X50 Pro launch event.
Not 50W, but 65W. Introducing DART Charge Technology!
– No heating while charging
– Enjoy Gaming while Charging
– Enhanced Battery Life

Realme is scheduled to host an event on February 24th in Madrid, during which the company will launch the Realme X50 Pro 5G — a Snapdragon 865 powered flagship device with up to 12GB of RAM. Just a week ahead of the launch, Realme India’s CMO Francis Wang took to Twitter to announce that the upcoming device will feature “Leading Charging Technology”. In a follow-up tweet, Realme India’s CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that the upcoming device will feature support for 65-watt fast charging, thanks to the company’s new SuperDart Charge Technology. Sheth further claims that the new fast charging technology will ensure that the device doesn’t heat up while charging, allow users to enjoy gaming while charging and provide enhanced battery life.
Realme’s CMO Xu Qi Chase revealed additional information about the new charging technology over on Weibo, stating that the Realme X50 Pro will use a GaN charger which is more compact, efficient, and generates less heat. He further added that the new 65-watt charger will be included in the box with the Realme X50 Pro and buyers won’t have to purchase it separately. While the company has released no further information about the charger, we believe that the new SuperDart Charge Technology is, most likely, a rebrand of OPPO’s 65-watt SuperVOOC 2.0 which also makes use of GaN semiconductors. It’s also worth noting that Realme currently offers a 50-watt SuperVOOC fast charger with its first flagship, the Realme X2 Pro (review), which is capable of charging the device’s 4,000 mAh battery from 5-100% in just 30 minutes.
