After a very long moment of mum on the status of what would become the next flagship unit from Xiaomi, we have now started getting a barrage of leaks on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8.
The latest one is courtesy of Qualcomm – the global chipmaker – who has confirmed that this flagship unit will ship with support for Quick Charge 4.0. That is in addition to the in-display fingerprint sensor, a translucent back and promise of 3D face unlock features that we have learnt about earlier.
To be candid, this does not come as much of a surprise. An earlier listing on FCC had shown the power requirement of the Mi 8 and from there, one could have easily deduced that this kind of fast charging tech would be at play.
What we would be looking forward to now is whether or not Xiaomi will include a charger capable of activating this charging speed.
Otherwise, the Mi 8 would just join the list of units that have the feature in them but can’t use it.
With a May 31 launch date looming above us as we speak, the Mi 8 promises to be one of the most interesting flagships around the market this year.
