May 31, 2018 – if everything goes as planned by Xiaomi, this day will mark the birth of next Mi flagship, Mi 8. So far there was no dearth of any exposures or leaks revolving around the device. Some earlier reports claimed that the device is going to be the first Mi handset to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. To add up the spice, it’s now almost confirmed that the device will come with another unique feature support – the latest Quick Charge 4.0+ standard.
Well, thanks to Qualcomm’s new updated list of Quick Charge supported device. On which the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8 is shown among those devices supporting QC 4.0+. This is something we can believe as it adds consistency to the previous report from FCC. The certification authority had revealed that the Mi 8 supports 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A quick charge protocols saturated at 18W maximum power output. Since the Mi 8, under the hood, boards the latest and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, the QC 4.0+ ought to be fully integrated into it.
Quick Charge 4.0+ features
The QC 4.0+ support should add up the reputation of the Mi 8, as there exist only handful of devices supporting this latest fast charging standard in the market. As an additional info. the technology was introduced on June 2017 by Qualcomm. It offers all the features of its predecessor QC 4.0 plus other improvements. Such as dual power management ICs, intelligent thermal balance, and advanced security implementations.
The Mi 8 once launched will deploy tough competition towards its alikes including Galaxy S9+, OnePlus 6 and Huawei P20 Pro. Will this device push the Xiaomi as a key dominant player in the flagship segment? Obviously, only time can tell.
