In March last year, Xiaomi decided to impress its audience by demonstrating 100W Super Charge Turbo fast charging technology. It can charge a fully discharged 4000 mAh battery in just 17 minutes. But it didn’t go beyond demonstrating the new technology, and until now it has not found its application in a commercial device.
Xiaomi will launch 100W fast charge soon: 4000mAh battery in 17 minutes
Now, Chinese insiders claim that Xiaomi will be the first company to show a smartphone with ultra-fast charging at 100 watts. But what model is the first to offer this feature, there is no reliable information.
All claims point to the next flagship smartphone. So some are inclined to assume that a 100-watt charge will debut in Xiaomi Mi Mix 4. The smartphone itself can be presented in August this year, but these are just rumors that need confirmation.
Gizchina News of the week
We can only watch whether Xiaomi has enough strength, skills and resources to offer the industry’s first 100-watt fast charge. It will be interesting to see how the company resolves the issue of safety and heat dissipation. In addition to how quickly the new technology will “kill” the smartphone’s battery.
According to previously published information, the 100W superfast charge takes only 17 minutes to fully charge a 4000mAh battery. If the technology can be installed on commercial phones, it may change our charging habits.
Gaming smartphones in 2021 will get Snapdragon 875 and 100W charging
The well-known Chinese insider nicknamed Digital Chat Station on the Weibo social network has reported some new details about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC and the upcoming gaming smartphones that will be based on it. According to him, one of the key features of the Snapdragon 875 SoC will be support for charging with a capacity of about 100 watts. Currently, three out of four manufacturers of gaming smartphones in China are testing and trying to popularize charging technologies with a power of 100 watts. So, next-generation gaming smartphones coming out in 2021 will use high-capacity batteries and very fast charging technologies of about 100 watts.
The insider did not disclose the names of the brands. But we assume that these include market leaders using Qualcomm’s SoC – Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo. True, according to the most recent data, models on the Snapdragon 875 will appreciably rise in price. So it is unlikely that now anyone will undertake to predict the cost of gaming smartphones in the near future. In addition, manufacturers will have to solve the issue of heating during the transfer of such high power.
What about the safety aspects. If I forgot to switch off my charger after 30 minutes will the battery explode like Samsung’s batteries? How long will the battery last over time?
