The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will get the Mi 10 Ultra's 120W charging speed
The Xiaomi Mi 11 series is currently slated to debut on December 28, 2020 - or about 5 days from now. However, numerous leaks purport to reveal the vanilla and Pro model's specs prior to this event. The latest of this might add another piece to this puzzle: the rate at which these Snapdragon 888-powered devices will power up.
This may have emerged in the course of a Weibo conversation between the tipsters Digital Chat Station and Lecter-MI. The former stated that, even though the groundbreaking 120W charging brick shipped with the Mi 10 Ultra was making a comeback in the Mi 11s, only the Pro variant would be compatible with it.
The Mi 11, on the other hand, was to get "50W+" charging instead. Lecter-MI's reply asserted that this figure would be 55W, whereas the "11 pro" would in fact be 120W. However, it seems an upgrade for its immediate 2021 premium successor is coming.
The leaker also now claims that "120W+80W" is coming for the "Mi X4" (the Mi Mix 4?). However, what could be interpreted as a new breakthrough in wireless charging comes with a catch. Lecter-MI's English-language-translated comment points strongly to a new and proprietary stand necessary to unlock this speed.
This putative new accessory, then, may be a good opportunity to get more orders out of Mi Mix fans, as ironic as this could be following its marketing team's own panning of Apple for similar iPhone 12-related business practices.
