The Xiaomi Mi 10 series is definitely on its way. Unfortunately, we do not have much information regarding this device. According to a popular Chinese blogger, the best combination for smartphones is “1080P 90Hz + 5G + 4500 mAh or 2K 120Hz + 5G + 5000 mAh. A 4000 mAh battery cant handle the pressure from high refresh rate and 5G”. This view was endorsed by Wang Teng, Product Director of Xiaomi, and Wang Teng reposted this Weibo post with the comment, “In the 5G era, the power consumption pressure below 4500 mAh will be very great.”
Its common knowledge that the Xiaomi Mi 10 series will support 5G and may use a high-refresh screen. Therefore, the recent Weibo post sparked speculations that the Mi 10 may also use a huge battery. A few months ago, Lu Weibing, general manager of the Redmi brand, discussed the issue of battery for 5G mobile phones.
According to Lu Weibing, in the 5G era, the size of smartphone batteries will be larger. This, in turn, will make the phone heavier. Some professionals believe that the radio frequency PA is the battery consumer in 5G mobile phones. The radio frequency increases from 23db to 26db (signal strength), thus the power consumption will increase by 2-3 times. Therefore, it will need a large battery to maintain the battery life of the mobile phone. With such a strong radio frequency, the processor of the mobile phone cannot be poor.
There is no doubt that large-capacity batteries in the 5G era are a trend of future mobile phones, and the increase in the thickness of mobile phones is also a trend.
