As the Android biggies started arriving with the wireless charging feature, even Apple adopted to the same. Today, the Chinese manufacturer apparently joined the Wireless Power Consortium, the group of tech firms that have the goal of promoting the Qi wireless charging platform. Nearly all major global smartphone makers including Nokia, Google, Samsung, LG and Apple are part of this consortium. Because of this, it is being speculated that Xiaomi's next flagship smartphone might feature wireless charging. "We are excited to continue expanding Belkin's growing portfolio of wireless charging solutions with the new Boost↑Up Wireless Charging Pad for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, holding to our mission of helping consumers realize the power of new technology".

The Mi 7 might also be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

Still, Xiaomi company has not officially confirmed its intention to joining the consortium.

The Sweden-founded, Netherlands-based home furnishing giant wants to remind the world of this rather unconventional product lineup in the most original, cheeky and amusing way, basically copying and adapting some of Apple's most effective advertising slogans over the years. This also makes the Mi 7 Xiaomi's first smartphone under the Mi series to feature that display size. Wireless charging in flagship smartphones is now becoming a standard feature. "The iPhone 7 was one of the first top-selling flagship smartphones to ditch the headphone socket and the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X following suit this year has confirmed that wireless is likely to be the standard going forwards". Are you looking forward to being able to charge it wirelessly?
