Xiaomi introduced its 100W fast charging technology to its smartphones, which can be used to charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. However, technology has become far from reality due to various problems.
Fortunately, there is good news. A new report suggests the world’s first 100W smartphone may be charging by the end of the year.
Last year, the company announced it plans to add 100W to a smartphone by 2020, and now a Chinese tipster says we’ll see it soon. The company has reportedly introduced a 120W fast charger in the past, but there is no confirmation yet.
There is no word on which smartphone is equipped with this technology, but it will undoubtedly make it the fastest rechargeable phone in the world. We could also see competitors like Oppo launch better charging solutions to take over the new development from Xiaomi.
We expect Xiaomi 100W fast charging to be included in the Mi 10 Pro Plus or Mi Mix 4 in the fourth quarter of this year.
It’s worth noting that Xiaomi will not be the first to beat Oppo’s record position, as the Lenovo Legion gaming phone is expected to charge 90W fast and reportedly debut earlier than Xiaomi’s 100W phone.
In addition, Vivo is working on a 120W super flash charging technology that may launch sometime next year and will break the Xiaomi record. It can charge a 4000 mAh battery in just 13 minutes, which would be 4 minutes faster than the Xiaomi.
