A couple of months ago, Xiaomi demonstrated HyperCharge fast wired and wireless charging technologies with power up to 200 and 120 watts, respectively. According to the latest reports, these technologies will begin to be implemented in production flagship models next year.
According to the Chinese insider Digital Chat Station, 200W wired charging components will begin to be introduced into mass production by June 2022, and a new flagship smartphone with the corresponding function will be released the same year.
According to an insider, the first model with support for wired charging with record power will be a premium smartphone Mi Mix 5 – the fourth version in this series was presented just the other day. According to the informant, the new product next year will receive 200 W wired charging, but the wireless charging power will be only 50 W.
As you know, Xiaomi has in its assortment two flagship series that provide maximum performance, the best displays and cameras, and in the Mi Mix line, experimental technologies and innovative solutions are tested – it does not matter whether it is about displays, materials or chargers. So, the recently presented Mi Mix 4 has a 120 W wired charging module, which was introduced last year at the same time as the launch of the flagship Mi 10 Ultra. At the same time, the most advanced smartphone of the current year, the Mi 11 Ultra, only provides 67W of charging. Therefore, it is assumed that the Mi Mix 5 will receive 200 W charging and only next year.
Xiaomi claims that 200W HyperCharge technology can charge a 4000mAh battery up to 50% in three minutes. It will take 8 minutes to fully charge the battery. 120W wireless charging charges a similar battery 10% in 1 minute, 50% in 7 minutes, and 100% in 15 minutes.
