Rumor | Xiaomi 14 will launch with faster charging than the 13

Xiaomi has neglected to upgrade the charging speed of its vanilla flagship Android smartphones generation on generation. However, the OEM is now tipped to address this discrepancy in the successor to the current 13. It is believed to do so with its next upcoming power brick, allegedly possessed of superior specs compared to that associated with the flat-screened Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered device.

The Xiaomi 13 was spotted using a power brick compatible with its predecessor the 12 (and the Mi 11 Pro before that) to register as a 67 watt (W)-charging smartphone with 3C. The higher-end 13 Pro, meanwhile, forged ahead with a faster, yet still last-gen, 120W standard.

However, there may now be signs that their OEM might finally be ready to shake things up in terms of its in-house mobile power tech - but perhaps not until 2024.

The consistent tipster Digital Chat Station claims to have gotten hold of a listing for Xiaomi's latest power brick, called the MDY-14-EC whereas that of the 13 (and 12, and so on) is the MDY-12-Ex.

The accessory differs from its putative forebear in that it apparently has an all-new maximum profile of 20V/4.5A.

That equates to a new top speed of 90W. The new tip has led to speculation that the next-gen charger is intended for use with the "14" that might succeed the existing 13.

Should that be the case, the putative next-gen Android flagship might be unveiled before the end of 2023.
