MIUI is what iOS can only dream of being.
It's a much advanced operating system compared to handicapped iOS.
This is just a prototype and it's normal to try to push the limits. Otherwise, how are we supposed to learn and improve the technologies? Even if it doesn't end up on the shelves, it will still have taught valuable lessons to the company about handling overheating issues and finding solutions to various problems which will make upcoming products better and safer.
And, with the ever-increasing battery capacity on mobile phones, solutions need to be offered so that people don't spend a full day charging their phones. Solutions which are safe and reliable, hence these experiments.

Oppo and its subsidiary Realme has done 65W earlier. Xiaomi only steals tech and assume as they've stole nothing. Not to mention its OS is partially stolen from OneUI and iOS. I did not say their handsets are bad, though.
Carol, 09 Jun 2020Oh, so to make a bigger charger is called innovation? Why didn't i think of that while making ... moreIf that isn't innovation, then why are other top brands offering 18W fast charging instead of 100 plus Watts??
Their phones would explode with 100W charging without proper faster charging tech.
You can't just increase numbers without proper fast charging tech.
Companies like Apple are stalling innovation by limiting charging to 18W and supplying piss poor 5W charger in box while Xiaomi supplying 65W charger in the box for phones supporting 50W fast charging.
Who cares? Xiaomi is a company from a country we should not trade with and definitely should not support, considering their shady practices and their authoritarian regime that requests access and control over any and all businesses and technologies in their country.
YUKI93, 09 Jun 2020Cheap chinese brand? Lol, Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro 5G is a total ripoff compared to the already-prem... moreInferior specs? Lol
The MI 10 Pro is the real competition to OnePlus 8 pro, not Mi 10.
It only loses out on 120hz display.
Rest is on par.
Although Xiaomi did fck it up with pricing.
By no means, it is an inferior phone just overpriced.
CompactPhones5ever, 09 Jun 2020Nothing makes your house "lit" like a 120W charger from a cheap chinese brand.Cheap chinese brand? Lol, Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro 5G is a total ripoff compared to the already-premium OnePlus 8 Pro. Way too expensive and with much inferior specs. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Xiaomi starts to charge big money for their charger or other accessories.
120W charging for a laptop is fair enough. But for a phone? I'm not sure if I want one.
CompactPhones5ever, 09 Jun 2020Nothing makes your house "lit" like a 120W charger from a cheap chinese brand.xiaomi phones are not cheap vivo oppo oneplus and other Chinese brands are not cheap mi amigo... they have normal reasonable prices with reasonable profit margins around 40%. this ia the normal price for a phone the reason you see them as cheap is because you compare them with companies like apple who want to make like 400% profit from a phone
Rational Thinker, 09 Jun 2020Good bye to battery life in 6 months if you regularly use this charger.Still worth it if you can go 0-100% charge in 15 minutes.

Android Master, 08 Jun 2020Yes probably 4 cell battery.
So good to see Chinese at the forefront of innovation. Oh, so to make a bigger charger is called innovation? Why didn't i think of that while making my own huge BigMac. I would have still been the innovator of a bigger sandwich. Nobody tought about it before me.
Now getting to reallity, nothing new, people tried, is not working properly with small devices that is why their is a tone of research arround it, and nope the chinese are not better, this will probably end up for a laptop or like the 100w one that ups, is gone.
Namelesss, 08 Jun 2020And of course they say nothing about how long it will take to deteriorate the battery 5 Minutes.
ishreal, 09 Jun 2020The size of the battery doesn't matter. If the software recognizes it properly to trickle char... moreThe size of the battery actually matters a lot. An 6000 mHa big laptop battery has enough space to release heat, also is better constructed to support the strain it will be underput and even that battery is not forced with 100w more like 20. Their is a reason for all the restrictions, as their is a reason why Car's are not made to run 1000 kmh it is called taking security messures. And nope, the chinese did not found a better way to dissipate heat and nope software won't help that much against fast corrosion of the lithium strukture either, they just found that naming "high" specks makes the avarage joe spend some money.
Good bye to battery life in 6 months if you regularly use this charger.
AT posted an article about new switch-cap circuitry today (I think?), one of the big things mentioned is the importance of efficiency and heat dissipation. I wish tech journalism and PR had more focus on the technology behind the numbers, it seems all that matters is the latter and the end result.
Socalteknique, 08 Jun 2020We'll laptops have significantly larger batteries genius.The size of the battery doesn't matter. If the software recognizes it properly to trickle charge when it's closer to full, it will be fine. But you probably didn't think about that, simp.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2020Doesn't matter, people want it now now now and don't care. You can't argue with them.then they still get all offended and hissy when they find out it degrades their battery.
AFTER it has already degraded their battery, because why worry about the damage before it happens when you can complain about it after it's already happened?
