The Korean firm Samsung announced that mass production on wireless charging modules for smartphones has been set in motion. The technology was developed by Samsung Electro-Mechanics. They are ultra-slim and can be installed within the back casings of smartphones.
Unfortunately, the Korean tech giant is yet to confirm which of its clients will be using the technology. We’re sure, however, that the tech will find its way to its smartphones.
The first smartphone made by Samsung that supports wireless charging is its flagship the S3. We’re sure to see future devices made by the Korean firm to support wireless charging as well.
Samsung just announced that mass production of the wireless charging modules have taken off, but there are other devices that support the technology. An example is the Nokia Lumia 920. On Nokia’s website, a number of wireless charging accessories are offered.
The simplest wireless charging accessory on Nokia’s website is the Wireless Charging Plate. Just place the phone on the mat and it automatically starts charging. Another simple wireless charger is the Wireless Charging Pillow. Just like the plate, all you have to do is place the phone on the pillow to charge the batteries.
There are also high-end wireless charges available. The Wireless Charging Stand allows users to see the screen while charging, allowing them to do other things on the phone while they charge. It can also open apps while you charge such as SkyDrive or the alarm clock.
Another charger allows you to listen to your music while you charge. The JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker is NFC-enabled, which connects to your phone to play your music.
Since these wireless charging accessories are available via Nokia, Samsung is sure to follow suit.
