Navitas Semiconductor has stated that its GaNFast technology fast-charges the newly-released OnePlus 11 5G flagship smartphone.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the flagship smartphone combines a modern and elegant design with effortless imaging supported by the third generation Hasselblad Camera for Mobile.

The 100W SUPERVOOC charger shipped with the smartphone constructed around an NV6134 GaNFast IC, with integrated GaN power and drive, with control, protection and sensing in a high-frequency, quasi-resonant topology. This facilitates up to three times faster charging and up to 40% energy savings in half the size and weight compared to legacy silicon solutions. As a result, the small 55mm x 55mm x 28mm (85cc) charger weighs just 112g and attains 1.18W/cc power density. Charging the phone’s 5,000mAh battery from 1-50% takes just ten minutes and full 1-100% in around 25 minutes.

The company was featured as a key partner – together with Google, Snapdragon, Hasselblad and Dolby - throughout the official OnePlus 11 5G launch event, which took place in New Delhi on 7th February and was live-streamed around the globe. It has worked closely with OnePlus, releasing a series of GaNFast chargers into mass production and co-operating in live events such as promoting the OnePlus 10T and 10R models at Nasdaq and CES 2023.

“We continue to push the boundaries to provide the ultimate fast charging experience to our users.” says Mr Kinder Liu, OnePlus COO and Head of R&D. “Our strong collaboration with Navitas has allowed us to provide an advanced charger that not only delivers power quickly and efficiently to the high-capacity battery built into the OnePlus 11 5G but also keeps charger size and weight to an absolute minimum.”

“The relationship with OnePlus continues to go from strength to strength, says Navitas founder and CEO, Gene Sheridan. “We are honoured that our technology has once again been selected by OnePlus and excited to have been invited to play a part in the official launch of the OnePlus 11 5G.”
