Xiaomi currently has of a wireless charger on the market with 55W fast charging rates but of course, this isn’t fast enough. The company has again announced its new 80W wireless fast charger that can fill in a battery in 19 minutes.
A company VP shared a video of the fast-charging process, revealing the similarity between the new charger and the current one. He also claimed the new charger is breaking world records since it is twice as fast as the next in line (which is the 40W Huawei SuperCharge Wireless Stand).
The 55W fast charger was introduced in August alongside the Mi 10 Ultra – a flagship smartphone that supports 50W rates and was able to charged a 4,500 mAh power cell from 0 to 100% in 26 minutes.
Xiaomi has designed a “more efficient wireless charging architecture” with a dedicated chip and an independent coil system to provide the unbelievable 80W speeds. There are also MTW multi-pole connectors, dual 6C series batteries in the smartphone, and some software accelerations as well. Even after the industry standard of 800 full charges, it can provide 90% of its original capacity.
The device in the video looks like the Mi 10 Ultra with its curved edges of the screen and the single punch hole in the upper left corner. However, since the demo says a 4,000 mAh power cell, the device is clearly a prototype.
Hopefully, the technology will come with the next flagship in line which could be the Mi 11 Pro, expected in the first months of 2021.
