Xiaomi introduced a 65W GaN (Gallium-Nitride) charger last year – a compact adaptor that sits comfortably in the palm of a hand and can charge pretty much every device through USB-C.
Now, the company has certified with TUV Rheinland a more powerful version – it reaches 11V at 6.1A, bringing the total power output 67.1W.
The brick has model number MDY-12-EU and MDY-12-ET. The first three letters are usually for adaptors that are shipped with smartphones, meaning we could see handsets with a 67W wired charge as soon as this year.
When the Xiaomi Mi 11 was announced in China, the company CEO revealed the phone will not be coupled with a charger in the retail box. However, users can opt-in for a gift – a 65W GaN adaptor.
We don’t know whether the company will do the same with the upcoming 67W brick at the global announcement, but it is possible, so we’ll have to wait until Monday for the official unveiling.
