This year, phone manufacturers pushed the fast charging technology to new limits. Phones such as the iQOO 5 Pro and Mi 10 Ultra support 120W fast wired charging, and more devices should also join the list seeing as Qualcomm has announced Quick Charge 5.0 which brings 100W+ fast wired charging to a lot of devices.
Wired charging is not the only one that has gotten faster this year. Wireless charging has also seen a significant jump with phones like the Mi 10 Ultra supporting 50W fast wireless charging. It has now been reported that we may see ph ones with support for 100W fast wireless charging arrive next year.
The info comes from the Chinese leaker Digital Chat Station who says he had the chance to see the roadmap of the research lab of several manufacturers and a common goal for next year is phones with support 100W wireless fast charging.
At the moment, there is no info on which manufacturers are developing 100W fast wireless charging but we have a few guesses of our own. Xiaomi seems like a no-brainer seeing as they are the current leaders in fast wireless charging technology. While their Mi 10 Ultra flagship phone maxes out at 50W, Xiaomi actually has a commercially available 55W fast wireless charger.
OPPO is another manufacturer that is most likely also working on pushing wireless charging to 100W. In July, the Chinese phone company announced 65W AirVOOC Wireless Charging technology which is capable of charging a 4000mAh battery from empty to full in just 30 minutes, however, it is yet to make its commercial debut.
This year has been an interesting one for the phone industry with respect to advancements in charging technology. We sure are eager to see what they come up with next year.
