It seems like Xiaomi has finally jumped the wireless charging bandwagon and the Mi 7 might be the first Xiaomi phone to feature wireless charging. The website of the consortium shows the company as one of the 243 members. Just like Apple iPhones, the recent Samsung Galaxy S8 also features glass back to allow wireless charging. 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. Maybe Xiaomi wanted to keep this feature for its 2018 handsets, or it simply couldn't integrate the wireless charging support into its smartphone in time. No high-end smartphone it revealed this year has wireless charging support, based on the information the company has provided so far. This means that Xiaomi does aspire to launch phones with wireless charging in the months to follow.
