Man, 23, charged after woman crushed between cars A man has been charged after a woman was crushed between two cars near Buckingham Palace. Footage on social media showed her legs trapped between the vehicles at a busy junction in Grosvenor Place, near Hyde Park Corner, in central London. The 47-year-old victim was taken to hospital. Her injuries are not life-threatening. A 23-year-old man has been charged following the collision at 8.15pm on Sunday.

Oppo ' s latest batch of dual-cell flash charge solutions will no doubt set a new benchmark for the mobile industry, so you can expect more flagship phones to offer half - hour charging speeds next year. It's unclear whether the Reno Ace will be hitting Western markets, but if all goes well, here's

Oppo has announced the latest phone in its increasingly diversified Reno range of flagship phones, the Reno Ace. This one is in many ways the most high-end entry yet, although that depends on how you feel about notches.

Spec-wise, this device is very similar to sister company OnePlus’ excellent new 7T. There’s a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a 20:9 6.5-inch 1080p display with a small waterdrop notch and a 90Hz refresh rate, and a camera system built around Sony’s ubiquitous 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor.

The Reno Ace gains an extra fourth camera with a monochrome sensor, however, and comes with up to 12GB of RAM. The Reno 10x Zoom, with its notchless display, “shark fin” pop-up selfie camera, and periscope telephoto lens, could still be considered the top-end Reno if you’d value its features over the faster processor and screen in the Ace.

Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon

Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon Oppo is launching a smartwatch soon image 1 Even though we know the Apple Watch is a relative success, the jury is still out on many smartwatches that aren't GPS sports watches. However, companies like Huawei and Samsung have persisted with new devices in recent times and now Oppo is set to join the fray. A Weibo post by the company’s vice president Shen Yiren said that the company is working on a smartwatch but it won't be out this year.

Oppo turned heads last month when it announced 65W charging , making it the fastest wired charging solution in the industry. The Chinese brand says the Reno Ace ’ s 4,000mAh battery can be fully charged in just 30 minutes. In fact, a five minute charge can take the phone from zero to 27% capacity.

Oppo announced in Beijing the Oppo Reno Ace , yet another variant of the series, but there’s enough new tech here to justify the update. So I conducted my own test. As can be seen in the video below, I plugged my Reno Ace with 16% battery into the 65w charger and cable (note: you must use Oppo ’ s

The Ace’s truly unique feature is its breakthrough fast charging. Oppo was already the leader here with its Lamborghini-edition Find X, but the Reno Ace’s 65W SuperVOOC steps it up further. The phone’s 4,000mAh dual-cell battery can be charged from 0 to 100 percent in 30 minutes, according to Oppo, allowing for two hours of usage from just a five-minute charge. 

Xiaomi and Vivo have both shown off faster ways to charge a 4,000mAh battery, but neither have actually shipped products that make use of the tech. Oppo also says the Reno Ace’s 65W charger is the smallest on the market thanks to GaN technology.

We’ll have to test those claims for ourselves, of course. The Reno Ace does also support both USB-C Power Delivery and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge at 18W for times when you don’t have Oppo’s proprietary charger and cable, which is good news given that Google now mandates standard fast-charge tech for all Android phones.

The Reno Ace is coming to China first. Pricing is yet to be announced.
