However, one thing that hasn’t kept pace with speedy smartphones is the speed of charging the phone itself.
While there are some phone makers like Oppo and OnePlus that have tried to make our lives simple with their 50W fast-charging technologies, other phone makers are still far behind. However, Xiaomi’s new technology is going to change all that.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has been working on improving its charging speeds since a while now and now it has showcased a new charging technology at its developer conference in China on Tuesday.
Xiaomi is adopting a 100W fast-charging technology that can easily charge a 4000mAh battery in around 17 minutes. The Chinese smartphone maker showcased this in direct comparison with an Oppo phone with Super VOOC charging tech (which is also on the newly unveiled Realme X2 Pro) that maxes out at 50W. A video shared by Xiaomi Head Lu Weibing on his Weibo account shows the speed at which Xiaomi phone charges. Don’t Miss Previous
While there is still time for this technology to be added to future Xiaomi phones, this isn’t the fastest charging speed that has ever been showcased on a smartphone.
In June, this year, Vivo showcased their newest charging technology (in a video) which adopts a faster 120W charging tech. This, as per Vivo’s claims has the capacity to charge 50-percent of a 4000mAh battery in just five minutes. Moreover, to charge the 4000mAh battery fully, the 51-100 percent juice-up completes in just eight minutes.
Even Vivo just teased what the technology is capable of delivering and hasn’t revealed any timeline or device that will be equipped with this much-awaited feature. Rumours hint that we could see this technology in a Vivo flagship next year.
While we might not have a phone with these technologies in hand as of now, it gives hope that in future, charge-time woes would definitely be a thing of the past.
