Xiaomi has not ended its launches of mobile high-end in 2021, according to the rumor of the time. Rumors indicate that the Chinese manufacturer is working on a new flagship for the second half of 2021, and its main highlight will be the fastest charging we have ever seen on a cell phone. The unofficial information says that the battery of this new smartphone is capable of recharging to 200W using the cable.
The rumors come from the Chinese social network Weibo, where a user famous for leaks from the mobile world, known as Digital Chat Station, spoke of the recharging capacity of this supposed new device from Xiaomi. He does not mention what this “new flagship” might be, but the specialized sites already speculate that we are talking about a likely Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
First of all, we have the question of “timing”. Xiaomi usually launches a new flagship first, and then the Ultra version of it. Then we had the launch of the Mi 10 last year and then the Mi 10 Ultra. Now the Mi 11 has already been announced, so we expect the Mi 11 Ultra.
In addition, it was in the Mi 10 Ultra that Xiaomi invested its fastest charging to date. The phone is capable of recharging its battery at a rate of 120W, so it is very likely that the manufacturer will aim for its next evolution of fast charging on the same line. But from 120W to 200W it is still a pretty considerable leap, and the Mi 11 Ultra would have the fastest charge a cell phone has ever had.
Of course, we are still in the rumored phase and it is not necessary to understand Chinese to see that the Digital Chat Station post had only one sentence. That is, the information is still scarce and we have almost no details, which means that everything can change until the launch of this supposed new cell phone.
It is interesting, however, that the rumor points to a launch in the second half of this year, so we won’t need much to confirm or not this new 200W smartphone. And, as is the case with all Android devices, several other leaks are expected to launch by the time of launch, bringing more details on what to expect from the product.
