Xiaomi continues its race with Realme to create the fastest smartphone technology possible. While both companies may have cracked 200 W, Xiaomi now claims that a new version of HyperCharge peaks at 300 W. Controlled tests suggest otherwise, but 300 W HyperCharge can still take a 4,100 mAh battery from 0-100% in 5 minutes.

Xiaomi has demonstrated its next-generation charging technology, having been overtaken by its peers at the BBK Group. While Xiaomi continues to offer 120 W HyperCharge technology in its smartphones, it recently showcased 210 W fast charging in the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition. BBK Group subsidiaries like Realme have gone further though, with 240 W fast charging enabled in the GT 3 and the GT Neo5. For reference, Realme will launch the former during MWC 2023.

Not wanting to be outdone, Xiaomi has now presented a faster charging solution in a Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus prototype courtesy of improved 'HyperCharge'. As the image above hints, Xiaomi advertises its new charging technology as being capable of reaching 300 W. However, HyperCharge never reaches 300 W even in controlled tests, although it does get close to that figure. Instead, it briefly peaks at just over 290 W a few times and maintains over 280 W until the smartphone reaches roughly 64% charge, after which it quickly drops to a final charging of 65 W.

Still, the resulting charging curve fully recharges a 4,100 mAh battery in 5 minutes, which is a new record for now. Xiaomi adds its 300 W power supply is as large as the one used in its 210 W HyperCharge demo too, despite the 43% power increase. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen when Xiaomi will offer its new HyperCharge solution in a consumer device. If the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition is anything to go by, 300 W HyperCharge will be a Chinese exclusive at first.
