Xiaomi is stepping up its wireless charging game. The company has announced a new 80W wireless charging solution that promises to top-up a 4,000mAh battery in just 19 minutes. Need a quick 50% charge? Xiaomi says you can get that in just over 8 minutes with the new tech.
Xiaomi’s previous record for fast wireless charging was 50W introduced on the Mi 10 Ultra. When we tested the tech in our review of the phone, we came off pretty impressed and managed to have a 4,500mAh battery charge in just over 40 minutes. As such, we’re looking forward to what 80W charging can do on upcoming Xiaomi phones. A known tipster recently revealed that smartphones with 100W wireless charging could be a thing in 2021. Given that Xiaomi has already reached 80W, the goal of 100W wireless charging doesn’t seem impossible. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any timeline for when we can expect to see the new wireless charging tech in action, but it would most likely showcase it on the next Mi flagships, aka the Mi 11 series, early next year.
