Xiaomi 13 Pro tipped to launch with 120W charging thanks to a new 3C listing
Xiaomi is allegedly racing to sync the announcement of its latest premium Android smartphones to that of their alleged new processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Now, this rumor may have more weight than ever, as the 12 Pro's successor may have led its series into 3C-approved status.
The Chinese regulator has reportedly given a Xiaomi device with a model number thought to belong to the "13 Pro" a pass in its testing. Should this be the case, the smartphone has a premium charging profile, even if it is no faster than that of its putative predecessor.
The new 3C database entry indicates that the Xiaomi 2210132C is compatible with the MDY-12-ED and MDY-14-ED: 2 power bricks with the same specs as the currently-available MDY-13 accessory. It is designed for smartphones such as the Xiaomi 11T Pro, POCO F4 GT and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ - not to mention the 12 Pro itself.
Therefore, it seems Xiaomi's top-end MIUI 14 flagships might be 120W for another year. This lack of upgrade might come as a disappointment to some fans - however, as even the Samsung Galaxy S23 line is said to launch stagnating at ~25W, its 13-series rivals may have no bother racing right past them in this respect.
