Xiaomi Mi 7 is likely to feature wireless charging support

Xiaomi ready to release smart phones with wireless charging

Chinese electronics maker Xiaomi is now a member of the Wireless Power Consortium that is known for its Qi wireless charging standard. But Xiaomi has always been competitive when it comes to challenging giants like Apple and Samsung so it is likely we will see something regarding wireless charging support now that it has been listed under Wireless Power Consortium.

There are speculations that Xiaomi will leverage the new partnership by enabling a Qi standard-based wireless charging on its Mi 7. The Mi 7 is said to feature a ceramic design as seen on the existing flagship model - Mi 6 and arrive with dual rear cameras as well. The news is a delight anyway for the users who wish to own a phone carrying wireless charging technology but are not willing to go for high-end phones from Apple or Samsung.

The consortium became mainstream in 2012 as Nokia and Google launched smartphones supporting the Q1 wireless charging feature.

The Xioami smartphones which have been announced so far does not feature wireless charging support. How this will be true, time will tell, but Apple is not just chose the Qi - this standard is already embedded in many newer cars (but not from AVTOVAZ), so you can put the cell phone on a special place, and it will charge during the trip.

WPC was formed in 2008 and as of this writing, it has 243 members including companies such as Apple, Samsung, LG, Sony and more. Even though there is no official statement from the Chinese firm, the WPC listing suggests that next flagship from the company will support wireless charging. This did materialize earlier this month with the recent iPhone models - iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X those were unveiled.

In order to make wireless charging feature available on iPhone, Apple had to launch 2017 iPhones with glass chassis.
