It is revealed that the 200W wired fast charging solution can reach a 50 per cent charge in just 3 minutes. This is demonstrated on a 4,000mAh battery. Put five minutes more into the process and you will get a fully charged smartphone in just eight minutes.
The same custom build of the Mi 11 Pro was used to showcase the 120W wireless charging tech by the company. This solution took some extra time: it took a minute to reach 10 per cent, seven minutes to reach 50 per cent, and 15 minutes to a full 100 per cent. While this is almost double to charge time taken by the 200W solution, it is still pretty impressive for a wireless charger.
Presently, Oppo and Realme offer a wired fast charging solution that goes up to 125W and can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 20 minutes. This safely gives Xiaomi an edge.
To recall, the company introduced a 120W wired fast charging tech last year. This was capable of charging a 4,500mAh battery in 23 minutes. The same charger shipped with the Mi 10 Ultra.
However, except for showing off the new technology, Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any more details on the same. We also don’t know when it will make its entry for the general users.
