“Xiaomi’s reverse wireless charging feature will turn off automatically if charging doesn’t start within 90 seconds, presumably to reduce unwanted power drain”
Huawei was the first brand to introduce a reverse wireless charging feature, giving its smartphones the ability to charge accessories like wireless earbuds and other smartphones. Samsung then followed by including the feature in its Galaxy S10 flagship, and if rumours are to be believed, Apple iPhone 11 series will be joining next. Now, as discovered by XDA Junior Member kackskrz, the latest MIUI beta build includes evidence that Xiaomi might be working on the same feature. Given that Xiaomi Product Director, Wang Teng teased Mi MIX 4 charging capabilities, it’s most likely a possible candidate for the feature.
The description of the setting mentions that the user may “use their phone to charge other devices wirelessly.” Interestingly, the feature will turn off automatically if charging doesn’t start within 90 seconds, presumably to reduce unwanted power drain. Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S and Mi 9 are the two phones from the brand that supports wireless charging currently. These strings can be found by unpacking the latest MIUI China beta builds.
Separately, Xiaomi and its standalone Redmi brand recently confirmed that they would be launching smartphones with the latest MediaTek Helio G90T gaming SoC. The chipset supports up to 10GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64MP single or multi-camera functions including dedicated support for night mode. It also includes HyperEngine that boosts Networking engine, call and data concurrency and more. It also includes AI facial detection and can also accelerate AI-camera applications.
