The Mi MIX 2S is the first Xiaomi phone to support wireless charging. Along with its release, Xiaomi also announced its first wireless charging pad. Now, there is news of a second wireless charging pad.
The new wireless charging pad was seen on the website of the Wireless Power Consortium and has been certified. The pad was registered yesterday and already has its Qi registration ID.
There is even a photo of the charging pad. The design is different from the one that comes with the Mi MIX 2S and it comes in black. Although it has the same green LED in front.
We don’t know if Xiaomi plans to announce this new wireless charging pad separately or will launch it with a new device. According to leaker Roland Quandt who first spotted the charging pad on the WPC site, he thinks it may launch with the Mi MIX 3 later this year.
The Mi Wireless Charging Pad is sold separately for ¥99 (~$15) and supports 5W and 7.5W fast charging. The new wireless charging pad has a potential power level of 5 which may mean it might not be able to churn out more than 5W or 7.5W max.
