This smartphone packs a 4,000mAh battery and the wireless charger managed to top up 57 percent of the battery in 20 minutes. It reached full charge in just 40 minutes of charging.

The feature is also important for smartphone makers looking at making devices without ports. For the dream of portless phone, wireless charging is key and Xiaomi seems to be doing its bit to make it a reality.
