“Xiaomi is likely to launch a wireless charger on March 16th in India. This could be followed by the Mi 10 launch as the flagship supports wireless charging”
After the Mi Dual Driver earphones and Mi Electric Toothbrush, Xiaomi is ready to launch yet another product in India soon. Xiaomi India’s official Twitter handle has posted a new promotional video for what appears to be a wireless charger. The upcoming wireless charger will launch in India on March 16th. Interestingly, Xiaomi does not have any smartphone under the Mi or Redmi series that supports wireless charging. This could very well mean that the brand is almost ready to launch the Mi 10 smartphone in the country. The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are set to globally launch on March 27th and the series is expected to come to India soon after.
Mi Wireless Charging Pad launching in India on March 16th?
As seen in a promotional video embedded in the tweet, the company could very well be launching either a wireless charger or a power bank with wireless charging capabilities. Xiaomi has the Mi Wireless Charger that was launched in China back in 2018. The wireless charging pad is based on the Qi standard and can support up to 10W wireless charging. The Mi Wireless Charger is priced at CNY 69 in China, which translates to roughly Rs 730 in India. In November 2019, Xiaomi launched a 20W fast wireless charger for CNY 99 (approx Rs 1,000). The company also launched the Mi wireless power bank last year priced at CNY 149 (approx Rs 1,500). Any one of these products can be expected to launch in India on March 16th.
Xiaomi hinting at Mi 10 series India launch?
The launch of a Xiaomi wireless charger suggests the company could be gearing to bring the Mi 10 series of smartphones. Readers must be made aware that the Mi 9 series and the Mi 10 series of smartphones support wireless charging and the company’s current smartphones in India don’t come with such support. It won’t make much sense for Xiaomi to launch a wireless charger in India without, well, having devices that can utilize the same, unless, of course, the company wants us to wirelessly charge smartphones from other brands. Negating this unlikely possibility, we can now expect the Xiaomi Mi 10 series to arrive in India.
