Xiaomi Shows Off 100W Super Charge Turbo, To be seen first on upcoming Redmi flagship!

Published

By

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is finally back in the innovation game after a while now. This time, they have come up with something in the charging department. A few weeks back, the brand unveiled the fastest wireless charging technology which could output up to 20W.

This time, they have taken the wired charging to the next level by introducing Super Charge Turbo which can offer up to 100W (expected to be 20V/5A). This could charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 17 minutes. To put this in perspective, the current leading wired charging is Oppo’s SuperVOOC Flash Charge 50W (10V/5A) and Huawei’s 55W fast charging. This will be twice as fast as the current charging techniques.

Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi has officially teased Super Charge Turbo on Weibo by publishing a video where this new charging technique is compared on a smartphone with 4000 mAh battery against the Oppo R17 Pro which has a 3,700 mAh battery and 50W SuperVOOC flash charge. The Oppo R17 Pro will take around 35 minutes for a complete charge using its SuperVOOC flash charge. Take a look at the video below:

Moreover, Lu Weibing, president of Redmi division has announced that the sub-brand Redmi will be the first from Xiaomi to mass produce and implement the Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo which is quite surprising as the brand has decided to focus on the Redmi lineup more than the original Mi lineup. There were rumors in the past regarding an upcoming flagship Redmi smartphone. This technology will be seen in this next flagship which will be featuring Snapdragon 855 chipset.

There is no exact timeline regarding the arrival of this technology or the smartphone harnessing this feature. We’ll have to wait as of now for the brand to reveal further details. Till then, stay tuned for updates.
