Last year, Vivo unveiled the Apex 2020 concept smartphone, the main feature of which is a one-piece body without ports and buttons. Unfortunately, it remained a concept, but Xiaomi is confident that soon there will be more such devices.
Xiaomi representatives believe that next year gadgets without cable connectors will appear on the smartphone market, which will only be charged wirelessly. Moreover, these will no longer be concepts, but commercial models.
The company says wired charging is still a priority only because wireless charging technology is still underdeveloped. In addition, not at home, but for example, in a public place, you are unlikely to find a wireless charger for your smartphone. And the users themselves trust the usual way more.
However, technology is keeping pace with the times, and wireless charger manufacturers continue to improve their products. For example, the same Xiaomi recently introduced HyperCharge technology, which delivers 200 watts over the wire and 120 watts wirelessly. Moreover, it is safe and harmful to the battery.
