Xiaomi now features the world’s fastest charging technologies for both wired and wireless approaches, as recently revealed via a video it posted on Twitter. Coming in at a whopping 200W and 120W respectively, these have easily surpassed OPPO’s 125W wired and 65W wireless charging tech that were introduced almost a year prior.
As demonstrated in the video, Xiaomi’s 200W charger is shown to fully charge a handset’s battery to 100% in just 8 minutes, which is around 12 minutes faster than its rival’s technology. It’s also worth noting that both companies claim that they’ve used their own 4,000mAh-equipped smartphone for their respective tests, thus making it easier for us to compare charging speeds.

Meanwhile, the company’s 120W wireless charging tech is revealed to be able to fully charge the same Xiaomi handset in around 15 minutes, the fastest of its kind for now, via a prototype dock. It is not known if the company plans to implement this to future versions of its remote wireless charging technology (aka the Mi Air Charge) that was unveiled in January.
That being said, Xiaomi did not reveal when it is expected to commercially debut the new technologies either. At this current time, the only smartphone to feature its existing 120W wired fast charging support is the Mi 11 Ultra. Therefore, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the new tech to only be introduced with the company’s next generation flagship device, which would be sometime by the end of the year or the first quarter of 2022.
