In the past two years, due to the bottleneck of smartphone battery technology, it is difficult to achieve greater breakthroughs. This means that after the 120W fast charging, it appears that manufacturers are stuck. In order to provide a better battery life experience, manufacturers have chosen to start with fast charging. Thus, by releasing high-capacity charging, manufacturers shorten the charging time. The 100W charging can fill an average size battery in 20 minutes or less. Recent reports show that Xiaomi is testing a 150W fast charging technology. The development of this technology is very rapid and this technology will enter mass production soon.
According to Xiaomi’s current product planning, the Xiaomi MIX series will focus on various latest technologies. The first 150W product is likely to land on the high-end flagship MIX 5 series. This flagship series will be official in the second half of the year. Furthermore, this smartphone may also be the strongest fast charging device in China. With the 150W fast charging technology, a smartphone should get a full charge in 15 minutes or less.
In addition to the top-level fast charging, Xiaomi may collaborate with another brand in the camera of this smartphone. Most likely, Xiaomi will collaborate with Leica on the camera of the Xiaomi MIX 5.
In the past few years, Huawei has achieved the world’s top camera by co-branding with Leica. Now Xiaomi’s alliance with Leica will not only improve the photo effect but also further impact and stabilize the high-end market. As for hardware parameters, there are rumors that this device will use a 50-megapixel main camera. It will also support optical image stabilization (IMX707). Furthermore, it will come with a 48-megapixel 5x optical variable lens and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.
Rumour: MIX 5 to use a telescopic 200x zoom camera
According to earlier rumour and speculations, the Xiaomi MIX 5 camera will be very powerful. The report claims that this flagship smartphone will use a retractable lens solution. Furthermore, this retractable camera will be able to deliver up to 200x zoom. Nevertheless, it is important to note that with such zoon, users must use a tripod and stabilizer to take pictures.
Furthermore, this device comes with a premium design. The display is completely bezeless and it will come with a proactive under-screen camera technology. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the under-screen camera technology still requires some development. If Xiaomi uses an under-screen camera, we shouldn’t expect the best selfies.
