Today, Xiaomi unveiled its 30W wireless charging technology dubbed as Xiaomi Mi Charge Turbo in China. It is currently the world’s fastest wireless charging technology for smartphones. The new tech allows a phone with 4,000mAh capacity to gain 50 percent power in just 25 minutes.
Wireless charging technology for smartphones has been around for several years, but hasn’t gained popularity due to its slow charging speeds. With Mi Charge Turbo, Xiaomi claims it takes just 69 minutes to completely charge a 4,000mAh battery phone wirelessly.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 had arrived with support for 20W rapid charging. The forthcoming Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G arriving later this month will be the first phone to support Mi Charge Turbo technology. It is speculated that Huawei may also introduce 30W wireless charging on the upcoming Mate 30 Pro.
The Mi Charge Turbo wireless charging technology can also reverse wireless charge other devices like smartphones, smartwatches and earbuds. With the reverse charging available on Mi Charge Turbo, the iPhone Xs can gain 20 percent battery in about 30 minutes.
According to Chinese media, the Mi Charge Turbo features a wireless charging bed that includes five layers of nanocrystal receiver coil that produces wired-to-wireless power conversion of 98 percent. The Chinese firm is currently testing 40W wireless charging as well as true wireless charging technology that does not require a wireless charging pad. In March, Xiaomi had debuted 100W Super Charge Turbo technology that can charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. The technology is yet to arrive on a smartphone. Some reports have claimed in could be made available on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 and a Redmi flagship phone.
As far as the Mi 9 Pro 5G phone is concerned, its appearance on the database of China’s TENAA regulatory body has revealed that it measures 157.21 x 74.64 x 8.95 and weighs 196 grams. The handset has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with waterdrop notch. It carries support for full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels and is embedded with an in-display fingerpint reader.
The Snapdragon 855+ mobile platform will be fueling the phone with up to 12GB of RAM. It has up to 512GB of native storage. For photography, it is fitted with a 48-megapixel triple camera system on the rear and a front-facing shooter of 20-megapixels. The handset has a 4,000mAh battery. Its 3C certification revealed that it may come with a 45W wired charger.
