The latest leak by Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station indicates that Xiaomi is working on a new smartwatch that will support Qi wireless charging. The tipster has shared an image, which appears to be a screenshot of the latest developer version of MIUI. It has Chinese text, which translates to “Wireless Reverse Charging” in English, and a design on the top that shows a smartwatch placed on the back of a mobile phone. Just like you can charge any device that supports reverse wireless charging on a phone.
It also appears to have a toggle that, as per a GizmoChina report, is an option to automatically turn off reverse wireless charging. If it is turned on, the user can set the battery percentage, after which reverse charging will stop automatically.
Xiaomi’s portfolio currently includes a number of smartwatches, but there is not a single smartwatch that supports Qi wireless charging. At present, the company has not given any indication about the upcoming watch. The report says that the upcoming watch could be an upgrade to the Mi Watch launched by Xiaomi in 2019, which was the company’s first smartwatch to be powered by the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset.
