Xiaomi confirmed that the upcoming Mi 9 Pro 5G flagship smartphone will be the first phone to feature the 30W Mi Charge Turbo technology
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi today showcased its 30W wireless fast charging technology that it calls Mi Charge Turbo, which aims to charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 50% in just 25 minutes.
Xiaomi claims a full charge on the same size is achieved in 69 minutes. In comparison, the previous best by Xiaomi — Mi 9, which went to 20W — only charged 30% of its 3,300mAh battery in 30 minutes, GSMArena reported on Monday.
The upcoming Mi 9 Pro 5G flagship smartphone will be the first phone to feature the 30W Mi Charge Turbo technology, the Xiaomi confirmed at the event.
The company has, however, not clarified whether the speedy charger will be included in the retail package or if a customer is required to purchase it separately, as with the Mi 9.
The company also announced that it is developing a 40W wireless charger as well. Xiaomi said the wireless charging standard is in its testing stages.
The fastest smartphone charger in the market at the moment is Oppo's 50W Super VOOC, which claims to fully charge a 3,700mAh battery in 35 minutes. It uses two 1700mAh batteries in a bi-cell design. This is equivalent to a single 3400mAh battery, but doubles the charging capacity for a significantly reduced charging time.
Oppo's sister company Vivo is also developing its own fast charger that has a power rating of 120W. It claims to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 13 minutes.
