Smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi also wants to provide its budget models with a 120W charging capacity that will allow them to charge very quickly.
Xiaomi is a reference in the smartphone market when it comes to charging technology. Since the Mi 10 Ultra, the flagships on paper have a charging capacity of 120W with which you can charge your smartphone from 0 to 100 percent in less than 25 minutes. With the Mi 10 this did not work quite as promised and for the Mi 11 Ultra Xiaomi stepped back to ‘only’ 67W, but the most recent flagships Mix 4 and 11T Pro come again with 120W fast charging.
Redmi Note 11
In a next step to position itself even more as a fast charging king, Xiaomi would now like to bring 120W charging to its budget smartphones. That writes Android Central based on a Weibo video, the Chinese YouTube. The honor would go to the Redmi Note 11 that will appear in the spring of 2022. In China, Redmi Note 10 Pro already supports 67W charging, but with us the charging capacity is still limited to 33W. That would be a serious leap forward for Xiaomi’s budget smartphones. It is still unclear whether 120W will become the norm for all smartphones of the Chinese brand from then on.
In addition to fast charging, the new Redmi Note would also have a better processor on board, one from the Snapdragon 700 series to be precise, with which the budget line can finally make the jump to 120W. Further details have not yet been leaked about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi is fully engaged in a new generation of charging technology. At the end of January, the company showed a preview of its Air Charge, a charging station with which you can charge all devices in your home wirelessly and can charge remotely. For the time being, it does not seem that this charging station is ready for commercial use yet and it is therefore still waiting for the first smartphone that could support this technology.
