Xiaomi Mi 9 specs: Snapdragon 855, 20W wireless charging, 48MP camera

Xiaomi Mi 9 offers astounding hardware for less than half the cost of ‘traditional’ flagships.

Xiaomi was never conservative when it came to the hardware side of things, but the Mi 9 takes things to a whole new level. The phone features an all-new gradient pattern.

Then there’s the hardware itself: the Mi 9 is one of the first devices to be powered by the Snapdragon 855, and there are three cameras at the back. The main 48MP f/1.75 camera is joined by a 16MP wide-angle shooter and a 12MP zoom lens that offers 2x optical zoom. With an overall DxOMark score of 107, the Mi 9 edges out the likes of the Pixel 3 and the Galaxy Note 9.

The Mi 9 also has wireless charging that goes up to 20W, as well as a 27W wired charging option. The 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel is sourced from Samsung, and there’s an in-display fingerprint sensor under the panel.

Galaxy Note 7 supports Qi Wireless Charging

Samsung finally took the wraps off its heavily-rumored smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7. With some killer new S Pen features, top-of-the-line specifications, an iris scanner and plenty of other enhancements, the Galaxy Note 7 might be one of the best flagship phones of the year.

The Note 7 gets a big bump up in battery capacity this time around. It comes with a non-removable 3,500mAh cell that’s pretty much in line with other larger devices. And as we mentioned before, USB Type-C will be the way to charge the Note 7. Samsung claims that the Note 7 can get a full charge in the time it takes the S7’s smaller 3,000mAh cell to charge, too, which is quite impressive. The Note 7 also supports WPC Qi wireless charging.

Samsung Gear S2 With built-in wireless charging

Finally, a smartwatch that’s designed for the speed of your life. With elegant curves and premium finishes, the Samsung Gear S2 will turn heads. The intuitive circular face and bezel let you navigate effortlessly to get to what you need. And with access to important notifications at a glance, you can get more out of every moment of your day with the Samsung Gear S2. With built-in wireless charging, it’s easy to keep the Gear S2 powered up. Whether you’re at home, work or anywhere in between, you can power up by simply setting your Gear S2 on the wireless charging dock.

Add Wireless Charging to Any Device

Wireless charging has been out for quite a while now with high-end phones usually equipped with this fancy type of charging. Although it has been getting traction lately, it is still not par with the current charging standard and isn’t available in a lot of phones. There are alternatives such as a back cover with a wireless charging receiver built-in, or a phone case that doubles as a wireless charging receiver. Some phones do not have these alternatives available, but does that mean you’ll never be able to have wireless charging? Of course not! We’re here to help you get wireless charging available for whatever device you want.

Things needed:
• Back Cover or Phone Case
• Universal Wireless Charging Receiver (Such as this one)
• Any device that can charge through a micro-USB

Preparation for the Back Cover or Phone Case
Something to know before hand is that any metal cover or case will make sure that you will not be able to have wireless charging. So if you have a metal back cover such as the HTC One M8, you can get phone case instead. This is needed because the wireless charging receiver does not look pretty on the back of your phone. Covering your phone up can give you a nicer looking device. There might be a small bulge on the back depending on the cover or case, but it shouldn’t be that much of a hassle since the receiver is very thin.
Preparation for the Wireless Charging Receiver
Before buying the universal wireless charging receiver, check the device you are using it on and the position of the micro-USB. You do not want to get a wireless charging receiver with the plug on the wrong side of your phone. This link gives choices for which kind of wireless receiver you need. If ever you do get the wrong one, you may still use it, but it could be a hassle trying to bend a very short wire.
Another thing to check is the position of the micro-USB. It will either be having the narrow-side on top or bottom, again, just use the right one for your device.
Do note down that it will be charging at only 500mA, which will mean that your phone will be charging slower. If you want added convenience and some cool factor, this is a sacrifice you exchange for this, if you have the time spare such as during the night, this shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Once you got all the things you need, just plug the universal wireless charging receiver in your micro-USB port and stick it to the back of your device. Try your best to get the center of the coil aligned with the center of your phone to lessen hassles with trying to align it to the wireless charger. If you’re doing this on a tablet, the coil can only reach onto the side nearer to where the micro-USB port is, and so we wouldn’t recommend this on tablets.
When it’s placed properly, simply cover it up with your case or back cover and you’re done! Try it out with any Qi wireless charger to see if it all works well and enjoy wireless charging! Source: Victor Corda, QiWireless

Qi Momentum Propels on Heels of CES 2015

The Qi wireless charging standard has been around since 2008, when a group of innovative companies formed the Wireless Power Consortium. The WPC quickly understood that businesses and consumers needed a simple, open wireless power standard to deliver affordable and quality products.

Like all new standards such as WiFi or USB, it has taken some time for a leading wireless charging standard to emerge, but that time has finally arrived. During the recent 2015 CES Show in Las Vegas, it was clear that the WPC’s original vision for a safe, simple and highly efficient wireless charging standard for the masses is becoming a reality.

Consider these facts:
• 200 WPC member companies in 20 countries now offer Qi products
• There are now more than 600 Qi certified products
• More than 50 million Qi devices are already in the market
• Over 70 smartphones from top handset manufacturers use Qi
• There are now 15 models of cars on roads around the world that have integrated Qi charging

These facts were brought to life at CES, where companies from a huge spectrum of industries showed eager consumers an array of useful Qi products that cut the last cord and eliminate battery anxiety in just about any location.

Automaker Audi, for instance, demonstrated a functioning Qi-enabled center console charger for its automobiles at CES. Audi is a member of the German auto consortium CE4A, which includes BMW, Daimler, Porsche and VW, which has already chosen Qi as the de facto wireless charging standard.

Qi is also powering up the fast-food experience with the agreement between WPC member Aircharge and McDonald’s UK to add 600 wireless charging hotspots to more than 50 McDonald’s restaurants in and around London.

The visitor questions at this year’s WPC CES booth were another reflection of just how far Qi has come. While a basic education was in order in previous years, many people this year had a good understanding of Qi’s progress and saw it in action as both a closely coupled and loosely coupled system. Our demonstrations in the Qi Café and the Qi Hotel provided a glimpse into the reality of how Qi is being rolled out in public spaces, office buildings, restaurants and hotels.

While people sift through the standards debate and “FUD” by other market players, WPC members have remained focused on delivering innovative, real-world wireless charging solutions with Qi: products that work, continue to gain adoption and evolve to meet future demand and real-world applications.

Clearly, Qi is already a robust, proven standard with a great deal to offer to technology developers, businesses and consumers. It was evident at CES 2015, where many Qi products were announced from companies like Belkin, Toshiba, TYLT, Verizon and others. Manufacturers and consumers can feel confident that the Qi wireless power ecosystem is gaining the critical mass it needs. I look forward to witnessing and sharing more examples of this momentum in the coming months with Mobile World Congress 2015 and with numerous milestones to follow.
