One of the things that make Xiaomi stand out in the tech industry is the fact that the Chinese tech giant is always looking for new ways to innovate smartphones. Xiaomi announced a new wireless charging system that is dubbed as “Mi Air Charge Technology”. The cool thing about this system is that it doesn’t require you to keep your smartphone on a charging pad. Instead, the Mi Air Charge Technology can charge multiple devices at 5W in a range of several meters.
New Wireless Charging Technology
If the new wireless charging technology from Xiaomi seems like a gadget from James Bond movies, then you are right. The Chinese based tech giant is revolutionizing the wireless charging industry and there is no doubt about that. The system is not limited to smartphones and it will also work with smartwatches and fitness bands. Here is how Xiaomi describes the new technology:
“The core technology of Xiaomi’s remote charging lies in space positioning and energy transmission. Xiaomi’s self-developed isolated charging pile has five phase interference antennas built-in, which can accurately detect the location of the smartphone. A phase control array composed of 144 antennas transmits millimeter-wide waves directly to the phone through beamforming.
On the smartphone side, Xiaomi has also developed a miniaturized antenna array with a built-in “beacon antenna” and “receiving antenna array”. Beacon antenna broadcasts position information with low power consumption. The receiving antenna array composed of 14 antennas converts the millimeter-wave signal emitted by the charging pile into electric energy through the rectifier circuit, to turn the sci-fi charging experience into reality.”
From the looks of it, Xiaomi will raise the standards for wireless charging in the upcoming future. Let’s hope that the new wireless charging technology launches soon and for an affordable price tag.
