Since the birth of Qi wireless charging in 2008, the wireless charging power of mobile phones on the market has remained at the 5W stage for a long time.
Apple, Samsung, LG, Sony, Nokia and other major manufacturers took the lead in bringing wireless charging to consumers around the world, so that many people knew for the first time what wireless charging is.
However, ten years later, the wireless charging power of these manufacturers is still hovering around 10W, such as Apple 7.5W, Google 10W, LG and Samsung's 15W, etc. The wireless charging speed is still far inferior to that of wired fast charging.
Although Chinese manufacturers started late and generally started supporting wireless charging in the past two years, they have taken the lead in bringing high power of 27W, 30W and even 60W wireless charging, which greatly improves the practicality of this function.
Therefore, it can be said that in the field of wireless fast charging of mobile phones, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers have led the trend and achieved overtaking in corners. Let ’s take a closer look at the main players in the mobile high-power wireless fast charging market.
At the same time as joining the WPC Alliance, vivo officially released the APEX 2020 concept machine on February 28.

On February 13, 2020, Xiaomi 10 and Xiaomi 10 Pro were officially released. In terms of wireless charging, both models are equipped with 30W wireless fast flash charging and 10W wireless reverse charging.
Shortly after March 2nd, the vice president of Xiaomi Group Chang Cheng broke the news on Xiaobo ’s first 40W wireless flash charging test video on Weibo. The test video used a modified Xiaomi 10 PRO mobile phone with a 40W wireless charger. The battery charge reaches 57%, it reaches 82% in 30 minutes, and it takes only 40 minutes to reach 100%. The charging speed is surprising and faster than most wired charging mobile phones.
Xiaomi's wireless charging power has gone from 7.5W, 10W, 20W, 30W to 40W wireless flash charging that has not yet been mass-produced. Xiaomi has been surpassing itself in the wireless charging field.
Since 2012, OPPO has paid attention to the fact that wireless charging has entered a substantive stage. On the OPPO Finder released that year, a wireless charging kit was released, including a charging base and a protective cover.
The kit uses TI's wireless charging chip and complies with WPC wireless charging standards.
In 2019, the 30W wireless VOOC flash charging technology was officially released, and for the first time, VOOC flash charging was presented in a "wireless" manner. Wireless VOOC flash charge is compatible with Qi standard, and it is expected to be officially used in products in the first half of 2020.
Thanks to the accumulation of wired flash charging technology, OPPO uses the thinking of wired flash charging to conduct research and development of 30W wireless VOOC flash charging technology and conducts the entire wireless charging system from the mobile phone side, the charging board side, the charger side, and the battery side Sexual design.
Charge the 4000mAh battery mobile phone to 100% in 80 minutes, so that the charging time of 30W wireless VOOC flash charging is consistent with the traditional wired VOOC flash charging charging experience, becoming one of the fastest technologies in the commercial technology of the wireless charging industry.
In early 2020, OnePlus officially joined the WPC Wireless Charging Alliance. OnePlus' name can be seen in the WPC membership list, indicating that the company has joined the association and is expected to launch Qi wireless charging-compatible devices soon.
Looking back last year, when OPPO was included in the membership list, OnePlus was not mentioned directly in the list.
Given that the two companies always share some functional and technical resources, it is speculated that OnePlus may soon bring wireless charging support to its upcoming new smartphone.
OnePlus 8 Pro basically confirms that there will be 30W wireless charging, which is also the first time that OnePlus products have wireless charging capabilities.
On September 19, Huawei released Huawei Mate30 series mobile phones in Munich, Germany: Mate30, Mate30 Pro, Mate30 RS Porsche Design.
This unprecedented series is equipped with wireless charging function, supporting 27W wireless super-fast charging + new generation reverse wireless charging, and the official emphasizes that 27W is the power directly charged into the phone.
The 27W Huawei wireless super-fast charger has passed TÜV Rheinland's authoritative safety certification, and the charging is more peace of mind.
Home scenes, mobile scenes, driving scenes, all have super-fast charging in place, return blood at anytime, anywhere.
The new device is equipped with a graphene film cooling system, which enables excellent heat dissipation performance under 5G conditions, which will help increase the wireless charging speed.
On January 23, 2019, Meizu Technology officially released the Meizu zero real holeless mobile phone.
As the first product released by Meizu in 2019, Meizu zero focuses on Meizu's exploration and understanding of future mobile phones. It is the world's first truly wireless wireless smartphone.
Full body non-porous design equipped with Meizu's self-developed 18W wireless super-fast charge.
Bound by data lines, it is not the future of mobile smart terminals. Meizu zero uses the 18W wireless super-fast charging technology independently developed by Meizu Technology to bring the surging energy of river dams.
Precise and intelligent internal chip, high-efficiency step-down brings more convenient temperature control; with exclusive charging base, there is no wire trouble, and Meizu zero is inadvertently charged with full and full power.
Samsung is one of the most mobile phone manufacturers equipped with wireless charging. However, its wireless charging power has always been at the constant 10W level for 10,000 years.
Just last year, Samsung Galaxy Note10 +, Note10 + 5G finally began to support the maximum 15W wireless charging power.
Samsung's own wireless charger refers to this 15W technology as accelerated wireless charging 2.0, which is different from the previous 10W accelerated wireless charging.
Although 15W is not large, it has special significance. In February 2019, the Wireless Charging Alliance WPC announced the Samsung Private Protocol Test (PPDE), with Samsung Private Protocol as the first standard of PPDE.
This means that Samsung has passed its own private protocol testing process to WPC and included it in the Qi certification system, which means that third-party manufacturers can apply for support of Samsung's private agreement when applying for Qi certification for wireless charging accessories.
To sum up
As can be seen from the above, the main representatives of mobile high-power wireless fast charging are Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Huawei, OPPO, vivo, OnePlus, Meizu, etc. They have played an important role in popularizing this technology.
Although we have always believed that wireless charging and wired charging are not a competitive replacement relationship, the two complement each other to provide a more convenient and faster charging experience.
Wireless fast charging and wired fast charging can be expected at present, the two charging technologies will coexist for a long time.
Of course, as more and more mobile phone manufacturers start to develop non-porous mobile phones, and the technology has made great progress, wireless charging may really completely replace cables in the future, letting people abandon wired charging.
The future is wireless, and of course this day may be long.
Wireless charging covers the entire scene of home, travel, accommodation, catering, etc., allowing users to feel the convenience of wireless charging anytime, anywhere, thereby further accelerating the evolution of wireless charging.
