Xiaomi is already leading the way with smartphone charging speeds, It offers a speed of 67W whether wired or wireless in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra for example, And up to 120W for wired charging with Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. But next year, It can fire up a phone with 200W wired charging.
This is according to MyDrivers, Quoting “bloggers” who apparently claimed that Xiaomi will launch 200W charging technology in June 2022 or around June 2022.
Based on this, the site assumes that the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra may be the first phone to have this charging power, This seems like a reasonable guess, Where we were expecting to top. However , Mi 11 Ultra was announced in late March, And that could mean a slightly later launch for the 2022 model.
We know it’s in progress
Although we take this timing as inaccurate, It is no secret that Xiaomi is working on 200W charging technology. The company announced it earlier this year and claimed that it could get a 4000mAh battery from zero to 100% in just eight minutes, or 15 minutes wirelessly.
Xiaomi has not revealed if or when this technology will reach the consumer device, But as the company continues to increase charging speeds, We thought it would probably happen sooner or later, Even before this last report.
for comparison, Samsung Galaxy S21 range offers only 25W charging, While the iPhone 12 range includes only 20W of charging, So 200W will save significantly more power. for fairness, These two brands are on the low end of charging speeds among premium phones, But even the likes of OnePlus excel at 65 watts.
Of course , There can be downsides to faster shipping, The biggest one is that the battery life can decrease faster. But Xiaomi claims that after 800 charge cycles (which can take more than two years if you’re fully charging your phone every day), The battery will only lose about 20% of its capacity.
This is actually better than average, The Power Bank Expert claims that generally, a smartphone battery will lose that much capacity after just 500 charge cycles.
