- Xiaomi is reportedly working on 67W wireless charging technology.
- It is believed that the technology could come to two phones.
We saw Huawei previously offer 50W wireless charging for its Mate 40 phones while Oppo also demonstrated 65W wireless charging technology. Now it looks like Xiaomi will improve on the offering by offering 67W wireless charging in two upcoming commercial phones.
XDA Member kacskrz has dug into the Chinese beta version of MIUI 12.5 and discovered a snippet called “keyguard_wireless_strong_charge_67w”. This cutout was tied to two objects named Star and Mars, and XDA developer says these are code names for two upcoming Xiaomi devices.
It is believed that Star and Mars could be variants of the same device. In addition, the outlet suggests that Star is powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor, as the code name has been linked to a mention of the processor along with the Mi 11 (code name Venus). The website even revealed a logo for 67W charging (see below).
Which Xiaomi phone will be the first to offer wireless charging with 67 W? Well, we’d like to think the Mi 11 Pro will offer this feature first, but Weibo Tipster’s Digital Chat Station suggests that a higher-end Xiaomi phone could wrap it up (supposedly an Ultra or Pro Plus variant). Check out the machine-translated post below.
Anyway, it looks like Xiaomi is about to break records with 67W wireless charging. Hopefully the company can keep heat and battery degradation under control as well. In the meantime, you can check out our rundown of the best wireless chargers.
