Samsung announces a wireless charging powerhouse at launch event in San Francisco
Just as 2017 marked the 10th anniversary of the iPhone for Apple, including the launch of its first wireless charging smartphone, this year marks 10 years since the first ever Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and the Korean manufacturer has introduced a complete new family of products and accessories to the audience – the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, the Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Watch Active, all featuring wireless charging capabilities, confirming Samsung commitment to the technology now available since the Galaxy S6.
The new Galaxy S10 family which includes the new flagship Galaxy S10 phone, the compact, more affordable Galaxy S10e and the slightly higher-specced Galaxy S10+. All three models feature Qi-Certified wireless charging and updated Samsung Wireless Charge 2.0. The phones also sport the new Wireless Powershare, Samsung’s reverse charging feature meaning you'll be able to use it to wirelessly charge other devices, including the Galaxy Buds, much like with the latest Huawei Mate model.
The Galaxy Fold is an innovative smartphone concept with a foldable 7.3-inch tablet-size Infinity Flex display and a 4,380mAh battery which is cunningly split across both sides. Much like the S10, the Galaxy Fold also does wireless charging as well as Wireless Powershare.
The Galaxy Buds are Samsung’s newest wireless smart earbuds and will come bundled for free with the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Their charging case is also Qi-Certified and can be powered up using any Qi-Certified charger or with the Galaxy S10’s wireless power sharing feature.
The Galaxy Watch Active is Samsung’s latest smartwatch version, ditching the signature rotating bezel for a lightweight, aluminium build and redesigned strap. Place it on any Qi-certified wireless charging pad and you’ll be able to recharge the battery without the need of a cable.
