With 210W fast charging, this Xiaomi phone charges in just 9 minutes

By Habeeb Onawole for ScreenRant – Xiaomi’s new mid-range Redmi smartphone is the new fast-charging king with crazy-fast 210W speeds that can top up the battery in just 9 minutes.

There are already a few smartphones with 200MP cameras on the market, but Xiaomi‘s Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition is the first phone with a 200MP camera and support for 210W fast charging. Back in June, it was reported that a smartphone with support for 200W fast charging may launch in 2022. It looks like that charging speed has now been surpassed.

Unsurprisingly, the early adopters of this fast charging technology have been Chinese manufacturers whereas more established brands such as Samsung and Google have stuck to slower charging speeds for years. The more interesting part is that the feature is not exclusive to flagships but is also available on mid-range smartphones. Buyers don’t have to shell out $1,000 to get the fastest charging speeds as brands such as Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, and even OnePlus have mid-range smartphones that charge incredibly fast.

The Redmi Note 12 series is the next generation of mid-range smartphones from the Xiaomi subsidiary. The series includes the standard Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro+, and Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition. All four phones bring new features but the most exciting of them all is the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition. Sharing most of its DNA with the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, its unique features are its 200MP primary rear camera and support for 210W fast charging. These speeds allow users to charge the phone’s 4,300mAh battery from empty to full in just nine minutes… Full story
