Xiaomi has reportedly confirmed at its recently held Developer Conference that it will bring its 100W fast charging wired tech to the devices next year. The company didn't specifically mention the name of the device that will become first to feature this tech, but it is good to hear that this Super Charge Turbo tech is coming next year.
Xiaomi disclosed more details about the fast charging technology. It will use two batteries and the charger is said to be an ultra-high efficiency of 98% and will be built with high-quality materials.
The tech was reported to be mass-produced this year, but it looks like the process will start next year only.

Xiaomi formally introduced 100W Super Charge Turbo fast charging technology last month via its Weibo account. However, it didn’t announce when this tech would go in the hands of the users. But a report from MyDrivers citing a comment from Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi, states that the company is working hard on mass producing this tech so that it could reach the users.
As introduced, the 100W Super Charge Turbo fast charging tech can fully charge a 4,000mAH battery in just 17 minutes.
Bin, however, didn’t share any other details regarding this tech that could tell how this works or at least what to expect. Also, at the time of formal introduction, no details were shared, so we can’t tell what the technicality runs behind this fast charging process.
Only a video teaser was published earlier that shows the 100W Super Charge Turbo fast charging tech in action. The video compares the Super VOOC Flash Charge fast charging technology from Oppo with Xiaomi’s fast charging tech in order to point out the differences. While the Xiaomi’s tech fully charged the device in 17 minutes, Oppo’s device got charged to only 65 percent in the same time.
It’s suspected that Redmi’s much-rumored phone with Snapdragon 855 processor would possess this incredible fast charging tech. But this is pure speculation, so take it with a grain of salt.
