Realme GT Neo 5 rumored to come with 240W wired charging
The wireless charging war has basically been stopped in its tracks by the Chinese regulations mandating a 50W maximum, but there's no such limit for wired charging, and so Chinese smartphone makers keep amping up (excuse the easy pun) their systems every year.
According to a new rumor from the prolific (and usually reliable) Digital Chat Station, Realme plans to take the wired charging crown from Redmi soon with its GT Neo 5 smartphone. This will allegedly come in two versions, one of them boasting a 4,600 mAh battery and 240W charging support. This is undoubtedly a variation of the 240W system that was demoed by Oppo back in February, and it will apparently stay exclusive to Realme for a while before trickling over to Oppo and OnePlus handsets.Realme GT Neo 3 150W
The Realme GT Neo 5 will also come in a version with a 5,000 mAh battery and "just" 150W charging support. Oppo's demo of the 240W tech showed a 4,500 mAh battery going from zero to 100% in 9 minutes, which is probably what you should expect to see in the GT Neo 5 in real life, since the battery is only marginally bigger, and the technology had months to mature in the meantime and get even more efficient.
Truth be told, even if it's 10 minutes, we won't be disappointed, and neither should you - a full charge in such a short while still seems insane to think about, especially given that there are current generation flagships from both Apple and Google that take almost two hours to achieve the same thing.
Oppo's 150W system can last 1,600 charge cycles before the battery drops to 80% of its initial capacity. That's double what you can expect from a normal battery. Interestingly enough, despite Realme being related to Oppo (while still independent in its own right), its 150W tech as seen in the GT Neo 3 comes with a lower assurance of 1,000 charge cycles before the battery drops to 80% of its initial capacity.
That's still commendable, and this difference between the brands is probably reflected in the prices of their respective devices too.

meaning they still expand and etc the same way other li-ion batteries do

Batteries are the same as they were

Being made of lithium Ion doesn't equal remain the same Your just talking about the chemical raw materials the implementation is another story and that my argument when you say batteries have remained the same which is untrue
