According to recent reports, Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi is developing at least two new smartphones. These Xiaomi smartphones belong to the same series. One of these smartphones uses a 64MP main camera while the other comes with a 108MP sensor. XDA found in MIUI 12 multiple pieces of evidence of the existence of Xiaomi’s upcoming two smartphones. The codenames of the two phones belong to the Gauguin series (Gauguin & Gauguin Pro).
One of the highlights of the two phones is that they will come with a quad-rear camera setup. While the standard version will use a 64MP main sensor, the Pro version will use a 108MP main camera. Furthermore, there are indications that the Gauguin series will arrive in three regions. They include China, India, and Global. This indicates that this smartphone will enter the Indian and other international markets for sale.
Furthermore, XDA says that the model number for Gauguin will end with J17. In addition, the Gauguin Pro model number will end with J17Pro. In addition, this smartphone will arrive with a Qualcomm processor. Unfortunately, apart from the camera specs, there is no other information regarding these two smartphones. Furthermore, there is no information on the exact sensors to be used on these smartphones. Could this device have anything to do with Xiaomi’s 120W charger (power adapter) which recently got 3C certification? We do not know that for now.
However, the certification shows that this power adapter supports a fast-charging protocol of up to 120W (20V 6A). However, it also mentions that it is only suitable for altitudes of 5000 meters and below. With this certification, it appears that Xiaomi is getting closer to releasing this device. Nevertheless, we still do not know the smartphone that will launch this charger.
When there is a limit to the battery capacity that a device can take, fast charging becomes an option. Since 2018, mobile phone fast charging has gradually increased from 18W to 40W and even higher to 65W. This year, we expect that the fast charging capacity of mobile devices will hit 100W
Well, Oppo has been on top of its game when it comes to fast charging technology. Thus, the general expectation is that Oppo will arrive first. However, in the first half of 2019, Xiaomi and Vivo exhibited 100W and 120W super-fast charging technologies respectively. From the Xiaomi’s exhibition, the 100W fast charge fills up a 4000 mAh battery in 17 minutes. As for Vivo’s 120W fast charge, it fills a 4000 mAh battery in 13 minutes. However, none of these companies said anything about mass production.
