Xiaomi has announced new 30W fast wireless charging solution at an event in China. Xiaomi likes to address this new technology as Mi Charge Turbo which will soon debut with the Mi 9 Pro 5G device.
Xiaomi claims this new technology can charge a device with 4,000mAH battery from 0% to 50% in a mere 25 minutes. Well, that’s indeed amusing to note since this much capability will be harnessed by a ‘wireless’ charging method for the first time. This naturally makes Xiaomi first in the industry to develop such a solution. We assume that the device in question could be the Mi 9 Pro 5G that will have 4,000mAH battery.
Xiaomi didn’t really go into the details of this solution but what you might want to know is already sufficiently available, these include the name of the tech, name of the device debuting it, and the charging delivery claim.
Xiaomi in its press release also confirms that it’s also testing the 40W wireless charging, alongside testing its insane 100W wired fast charging solution. While it’s confirmed that 30W fast wireless charging solution will be debuted on the Mi 9 Pro 5, it’s rumored that the 40W will debut on the Mi MIX 4 device. Going by the leaks, Xiaomi appears to be adding very interesting features to the MIX 4, including 90Hz display, 108MP camera.
Together with announcing the new tech and its forthcoming plans, Xiaomi also took an opportunity to announce two new wireless chargers. One is a charging dock based on the 30W Mi Charge Turbo and it is also Qi-compatible. The device on the dock stands in a vertical and upright position and it also features an active cooling fan to ensure heat dissipation. Xiaomi calls it 30W Fan-cooled Wireless Charging Stand which features a vertical air duct design that "allows the air outlet to blow directly to the phone to reduce obstructions, improve heat dissipation and reduce the dust trapped in the air duct."
The second accessory is a 20W charging pad that lets you place the device anywhere on itself. The charger’s charging coil system can detect where the phone is placed and delivers a full charge. It's currently unknown when the two chargers will come to the market.
