The confirmation comes two weeks after notorious secret source Digital Chat Station revealed the same thing. These charging speeds will be a huge improvement over the Note 10 series, which has rates of 67W in China and 33W on the global stage.

We are quite confident that 120W will also reach international devices after the 11T Pro arrived at the same standard last month.

Although, a new phone from Xiaomi, likely part of the upcoming series, has appeared on Geekbench. The handset has a model number 21091116C/21091116UC and was present with 8GB of RAM, Android 11 and what appears to be the Dimensity 920 chipset.

Do fast-charging batteries degrade faster?

Fast charging is without a doubt a welcome addition for any user. Being able to charge our smartphone from 0% to 100% in minutes is something that can save our day. The quick charge process, however, can shorten the life of the batteries. The introduction of fast charging managed to increase battery life and increase its density. Fast charging eliminates the need to carry chargers and/or PowerBanks that are bulky and take up too much space.

Inductive Charging Technology (ICT) is a contactless technology used to transfer power from a charger to a mobile device and is also breaking records reaching even 80w on the Mi 11 Ultra. The big question is whether these excessive speeds will not degrade battery capacity faster. Xiaomi claims that its new Xiaomi 11T models will achieve 800 charge cycles before starting to show degradation. This equates to more than 2 years charging once a day.
