A well-known leaker claims that Xiaomi is already testing its new fast charging technology, with no less than 200W, in a smartphone that would arrive by the end of 2021.
When last year Xiaomi presented us with the Mi 10 Ultra to celebrate its tenth anniversary, many of us stopped at that “120” figure that illustrated first the spatial zoom of its photographic system, and then also an ultra-fast charging system of up to 120W never seen in a cell phone.
Figures of brilliance that accompanied Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 5 technology, and that promised that we could charge our brand new special edition Xiaomi from 0% to 41% of its 4,500 mAh in just 5 minutes, or make a 0-100% in less than 25 minutes…
Well, do not be too surprised yet, because a well-known leaker has leaked that Xiaomi is already testing prototypes of a flagship that would arrive in this same year 2021, and that would offer fast-charging up to 200W without having transcended battery capacities or any other details.
We do not know in fact if it is a version of the Xiaomi Mi 11 with the surname ‘Ultra’, or a new model of the most innovative families of the Chinese giant, the forgotten Mi MIX that has not been renewed for more than a year.
This prototype is the smartphone with the fastest fast charge on the planet, being able to offer full charges of 4,500mAh in 15 minutes or even less.
How is this feat achieved? Well, it is simple to explain and not so simple to understand and is that to reach faster charges of 55 or 60 watts, what manufacturers are implementing are batteries of two or more cells, allowing parallel charging up to 60W the two parts individually, thus doubling the overall charging speed.
We understand that this would be the technology chosen by Xiaomi once again, betting even up to 3 or 4 cells, although it will remain to be seen what demonic performance wall charger Xiaomi would have to sell, and what temperatures would reach to charge a mobile in just 15 minutes.
Yes, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 also advances details… Coincidentally?
Well indeed, accompanying this news have also transcended some rumors about what would be the first renewal of the Mi MIX family since the beginning of 2019, which would hypothetically shape the Mi MIX 4 and should integrate camera technology under the screen.
It would be the first Xiaomi smartphone with a camera hidden under the panel, without sliding mechanisms or artifices of this type, to leave an absolutely clean front that would make the most of its size to offer more screen.
Sources say that Xiaomi’s work is focusing mainly on optimization algorithms because as we saw in the ZTE Axon 20 technology works but not quite right, making it clear that there is work ahead before it is usable in high-performance phones.
Thus, we already know that Xiaomi is preparing a 120W ultrafast charging and that it is being tested in a device that would arrive in the second half of 2021. Additionally, we also know that a Mi MIX 4 is in the oven and that it will be the first Xiaomi with high-end hardware and an absolutely clean front for its screen, without mechanisms or dressings.
