Xiaomi would prepare two smartphones compatible with very fast wireless charging. The transmitted power would be 67 watts, a record. Among the two smartphones could be the Mi 11 Pro, an improved version of the Mi 11 that Xiaomi unveiled in January 2021. The information was revealed by the source code of the beta version of MIUI 12.5.
On December 28, 2020, between Christmas and New Year’s Day, Xiaomi presented the Mi 11 5G, its new flagship. An ambitious smartphone, with a Snapdragon 888, a screen Quad HD OLED, 8 to 12 GB of RAM and 128 to 256 GB of storage, a 4600 mAh compatible 55 watt fast charging and 50 watt wireless fast charge. Two Harman Kardon speakers, a 20-megapixel selfie sensor and three rear photo sensors (including a 108 megapixel model) complete the technical sheet.

In this smartphone, an important element is missing so that the Mi 11 can compete with the iPhone 12, the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the future flagships of the brands Huawei, Oppo and Vivo. It is an optical zoom. Which suggests thata Pro version would be in preparation at Xiaomi. This has been the subject of several rumors recently. One of them claims that the Mi 11 Pro will be presented in February 2021. And another announces the presence of a 120x hybrid zoom.
Fast wireless charging exceeds 60 watts
This week, the Mi 11 Pro is again talking about it thanks to a discovery in the source code of the beta version of MIUI 12.5. Two new smartphone code names have been crossed there: Star and March. And both smartphones would be compatible with new wireless fast charging technology. This would offer a power of 67 watts.
It would be a new record. Indeed, fast wireless charging hardly ever exceeds 40 watts in business models. And we only know Vivo’s Apex 2020 prototype which benefits from faster charging plus power (60 watts). We know that Xiaomi is working on a wireless charging solution that can power up to 80 watts. But Xiaomi would have chosen to restrain it at first to avoid overheating.
