Xiaomi's next Mi flagship may come with wireless charging

Pi Chargers to Charge Smartphones without Chords and Mats, Claims the Company

But the Xiaomi company is listed to join on the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) member on the WPC website. The Chinese phone maker has officially joined the Wireless Power Consortium.

IKEA has launched a new ad campaign for its wireless charging furniture and lamps that is targeted at Apple customers. For the uninitiated, the WPC was first formed back in 2008 with the goal of promoting the adoption of the Qi wireless charging standard. Just like its smartphone lineup, the manufacturer also has a habit of releasing affordable, but high-quality accessories so a wireless charging station might be among those items too. The good part here is that Qi standard is being worked upon and developed by leading companies in mobile manufacturing together.

In terms of hardware, the Xiaomi Mi 7 may be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor (unannounced) along with two RAM variants i.e. 6GB and 8GB RAM.

Wireless fast charging is clearly something many iPhone fans will love but users need to be aware that they'll have to spend more if they want to access this very useful feature.

Though it remains to be seen if that model would be its much-anticipated Mi 7. Augmented reality is sure to break the barriers, but wireless charging will more widely be adopted by other OEMs following Apple's lead.

In fact, Mophie and Belkin have both introduced wireless charging bases that are optimised for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X with them able to deliver quick-charging speeds with up to 7.5W of power. While the radically different iPhone X comes out in early November, its $1,319 entry-level price tag will likely steer a fair chunk of the Apple faithful to the more obtainable but still powerful iPhone 8 models. The Mi 6 already had a glass back, so this will not actually be a change in the design.

From the existing reports, it is speculated that the 2018 Xiaomi flagship - the Mi 7 might feature a 6-inch OLED display that is made by Samsung.
