Xiaomi has announced its latest wireless charging technology which appears to be faster than most conventional wired charging technologies around right now. In line with leaks and rumours, Xiaomi has gone ahead and officially officially announced its latest wireless charging technology, which is rated to provide 80W charging to supported devices.
With the announcement, this has become the world's fastest wireless charging, which is much faster than what competing players are offering at the moment. As per Xiaomi, the wireless charging technology can charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 19.
Breaking down the resulsts it has achieved with the new wireless charging technology, Xiaomi has revealed in a blogpost that the "80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology is capable of filling a 4,000 mAh battery to 10% in 1 minute, 50% in 8 minutes and 100% in just 19 minutes." In comparison, the 30W Mi Wireless Charging Technology from 2019 was capable of charging a similar battery to 50% in about 25 minutes, and 100% in 69 minutes.
Over the last few months, Xioami has been upping the game in the wireless charging space, with Mi 10 Ultra previously announced with support for 50W fast charhing, with the company also showing off a 40W wireless charging technology shortly before that. However, this new technology could be a real game changer as it super-fast and could replace many of the fastest wired charging technologies.
Apart from the work it is putting into building wireless charging technologies, Xiaomi is also putting in effort into creating new wired fast charging standard that could provide more than 120W charge to phones -- something that's already found on the Mi 10 Ultra. This technology is expected to be available in the company's next-generation flagship smartphone and could be made official before the launch of the phone.
There are suggestions that this phone could also be the Mi 11 which may support the Snapdragon 875 SoC and is likely to launch in January 2021.
The announcement of the new wireless charging standard is just the latest in the line of announcements around the technology. IN March 2020, Xiaomi introduced to the world 40W wireless charging, in August that record was broken by Xiaomi's first mass-produced 50W wireless charging technology, only now to be broken again with 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology.
In addition to this, Xiaomi had also recently introduced Mi 10 Ultra, the world's first smartphone equipped with 120W wired and 50W wireless charging.
