For comparison’s sake, competing brands have not yet crossed the 30W mark in that area. The OnePlus 8 Pro, for example, offers 30W fast wireless charging. Needless to say, Xiaomi’s new offering is much faster.
Xiaomi’s 80W fast wireless charging can recharge a 4,000mAh battery in only 19 minutes. The company has demonstrated its new charging technology in a video, which got published on YouTube. That video is embedded down below.
Xiaomi introduced 80W wireless charging than fully recharges 4,000mAh battery in 19 minutes
You’ll notice that Xiaomi was able to charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 10-percent in only one minute. It took it only 8 minutes to reach the 50-percent mark, which is incredibly fast. At the 19-minute mark, the phone was fully charged.
The company’s CEO. Lei Jun, said this is the new world record when it comes to wireless charging. He mentioned the company’s 50W wireless charging which is available with the Xiaomi Mi 10 Extreme Edition as well.
Lei Jun also said that the company believes that wireless charging will completely replace wired charging. He did not give out a prediction when might that happen, but… he seems confident it will happen at some point.
Mr. Jun also did not say when will 80W fast wireless charging become available. He said that the company was able to get it to work, but it’s not yet ready for primetime.
We’re not sure if the company is near completion, or not. If it is, one of the Xiaomi Mi 11 variants may offer it next year. That’s just a wild guess. If the technology is nowhere near ready yet, we may have to wait until 2022.
We’re only guessing here, of course, we’ll have to wait for the company to share more information regarding all this. For the time being, we can only look at the provided video and wait for more information.
