Although reverse wireless charging has been around for a while, Xiaomi still has to introduce this feature. The good news is that — at least according to the information discovered in the latest beta MIUI build — the Chinese OEM is working on it and the feature might arrive sooner than expected.

Wireless charging might not be that popular yet, but this looks like the way of the future for portable devices. Speed is no longer a problem as it once was, and phones like the Xiaomi Mi 9 can support 20 W fast wireless charging. Now, it looks like Xiaomi is also working on bringing reverse wireless charging to — we can only guess — at least some of its existing devices, alongside many to come.

One member of the well-known XDA Developers community has recently spotted some interesting strings in recent beta builds of Xiaomi's MIUI. According to these strings, the user will be able to charge other devices wirelessly using a Xiaomi device and this feature will be turned off automatically if the process does not start in 90 seconds (to preserve power, of course).

Right now, there are only three Xiaomi devices that can be charged wirelessly: the Mi Mix 2S, Mi Mix 3, and the Mi 9 flagship. However, none of them can handle reverse wireless charging yet, a feature that Huawei has been providing via the Mate 20 Pro flagship since last year. Xiaomi is expected to launch reverse wireless charging with the upcoming Mi Mix 4, but there is no official confirmation for this yet.

Are you one of those already using wireless charging or even reverse wireless charging? How long do you think it will take to get rid of cables once and for all?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
