What you need to know
- As per a new leak, Xiaomi could launch a phone with 200W+ charging in 2021.
- The Mi 10 Ultra is currently the world's fastest-charging phone, supporting 120W charging speeds.
- The leak also suggests the company's first phones with under-display selfie cameras will be introduced next year.
Three months back, Xiaomi launched the Mi 10 Ultra, the world's first phone to support 120W charging speeds. According to leaker Digital Chat Station on Weibo, the company is now working on a phone with 200W+ fast charging.
The leaker has claimed in a post on Weibo that Xiaomi plans to roll out its first devices with 200W+ charging in 2021. Since the Mi 10 Ultra's 120W fast charging solution enables the phone's 4,500mAh battery to be fully charged in just 23 minutes, the upcoming 200W charging solution should be able to cut the charging time even further to less than 15 minutes.
However, 100W+ charging solutions have been found to degrade battery capacity faster than expected. It remains to be seen how Xiaomi plans to overcome this challenge with its 200W+ charging solution.
The post on Weibo also suggests Xiaomi won't be releasing a successor to the Mi MIX 3 anytime soon. Instead, the company will be focusing on phones with in-folding screens and under-display selfie cameras in 2021. As revealed by a recent leak, it is currently working on a foldable phone with a 108MP main camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro
Xiaomi's latest value flagship offers an impressive 108MP main camera, a 144Hz LCD display, and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset. It also delivers stellar battery life and comes with stereo speakers.
Make it easy too replace the battery when it's shot. Doesn't have to be a removable one just make it simple to change batteries. This would be the best compromise till either fast charging that doesn't damage the battery or simply longer lasting batteries are available. I've got 33 watt fast charging on a Poco X3 NFC with a 5100 mah battery and it charges fully in just over an hour which I think is really good for such a large capacity cell.
I think it's worth noting that the Watt is a unit of power, not speed. Xiaomi's engineers surely know more about electronics than me, but shoving 200 Watts up a phone doesn't sound like a good idea.
