Fresh information suggest that Xiaomi has joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) that will make it possible for the next flagship smartphone from the company to support Qi standard wireless charging.

Once known as China's Apple, Xiaomi is apparently following in Apple's footsteps when it comes to wireless charging.

The Chinese company has not released any official to confirm that it will be joining the consortium.

As old-school as the technology itself actually is, wireless charging is about to hit the mainstream with the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. But it also raises an interesting question we haven't thought of before - what if you have an iPhone case that you keep your credit cards in? The WPC has 243 companies on their list, which includes Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, and Motorola. As a result, we would expect to see the feature made available with the Xiaomi Mi 7, the manufacturer's next flagship phone. According to the speculation, the Mi 7 might be featured with 6-inch OLED display opted from the Samsung, with Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6 GB or 8 GB RAM. But Xiaomi fans just might be happy with the strong possibility that wireless charging seems probable for the Mi 7. However, none of the smartphone with metal bodies feature WiPower wireless charging. Do you use a wireless charger for your phone? "Also, most credit cards have a chip and this might be big enough to trigger the foreign object detection safety feature that turns off the power transmission if something other than a valid charging device is on the charging pad". Through the use of induction charging (which uses coils inside the phone and the pad), a magnetic field is created which produces electricity. The chargers emit their EM field only when a device is on the charging pad, too. Qi standard wireless charging is now available at restaurants and airports that allow users to charge their smartphones by simply placing them on the charging pad.
