Today, Quick Charge systems have become indispensable, saving us a lot of time in emergencies, since with only 15 minutes some mobile phones get enough energy to withstand several hours of use. The Xiaomi Mi A1 will be one of them when upgrading to Android 8 Oreo.
Created by the company Qualcomm -yes, that of the Snapdragon processors- in 2013, the Quick Charge technology reached mobile phones and in these 4 years it has not done more than evolve (in fact the Quick Charge 4.0 protocol is a reality). Is it utility? That allows you to recharge a terminal in less time, and in situations, like you have at best 20-30 minutes just to charge the smartphone, you can save the day by adding a higher load percentage in that space of time than the load provides normal.
Xiaomi Mi A1 with fast charge on Android 8 Oreo
Released this year, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has become one of those interesting smartphones by mixing elements, proposing details and premium finish with a good performance at a price as low as the popular Chinese brand. The first of the Xiaomi that came on the market with Android One, the Mi A1 comes with a Snapdragon 625 processor, so it is able to use the Quick Charge protocol. The problem was that when the terminal reached the market this year, it did so with the S Android 7.0 Nougat, without fast loading enabled and without a compatible charger in addition.
This is something that the mobile users will be able to solve soon since the update to Android 8 Oreo will activate the fast load in the My A1, a function that has been discovered in the private beta of the update that is being tested at this moment. All the Oreo news will be available in the Xiaomi Mi A1, like the adaptive icons, the PiP function, the auto-filling of API fields, etc., and next to this the fast loading for the terminal.
A separate compatible fast charger needed
Although the charger included as standard with the Mi A1 has a high amperage, Quick Charge 3.0 has a higher charging speed. Of course, this is standard and is not compatible with the protocol, so for fast charging to work on the mobile, you have to buy a separate charger that is compatible.
In beta status now, if you have a Xiaomi Mi A1 it is easy to update it already to Android 8 Oreo, although since Xiaomi is still promising that the official update will be released before the end of the year, it is expected that from now until Sunday it is already available the official update, so we would recommend that you wait for a more stable OS version.
