Ahead of the Mobile World Congress holding in Barcelona Spain, Samsung continues to tease us with some of the things to expect in its Galaxy S6, which is expected to be unveiled early in March. Among some of the things we can expect to see is a wireless charger, which Seho Park, Samsung’s lead engineer for IT and mobile said is likely to be a part of the S6.
In a lengthy post, which was written by Seho and posted on the company’s official blog; he took time out to explain the history of wireless charging technology. Though, his post did not state specifically if the phone will come with the feature, he did however, implied that it will.
“Wireless charging has come a long way in terms of charging speed as well. Two or three years ago, wireless charging was only twenty to thirty percent as efficient as wired charging. But since then, we have been able to double the charging speed,” Park wrote on the company’s official blog.
The year 2015 holds a lot for the Korean firm and the scheduled release of the S6 will mark the beginning of what Samsung hopes will be a bright future in terms of its line-up of phones. Park expects more landmark achievements in in the area of wireless technology, and he expects that more wireless charging stations will start appearing in more public places.
“Samsung will accelerate to democratize this wireless charging technology with compelling smartphones. With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before,” Park said in his post.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 support wireless charging, but not without the help of optional accessory backs designed for the purpose. However, Park’s post probably signifies something different with the S6, which could support wireless charging out of the box, and also with support for a variety of standards, including things like Qi, PMA and WPC.
Park also dedicated a section of his blog post to describe advances in tech made in 2014, which brought together support for multiple standards on a single chip. He further explained that it would make it to the market in the next six months after they have been introduced.
In less than eleven days or thereabout from now, the attention of the whole world would be focused on the Mobile World Congress holding in Barcelona Spain, and then we will get to find out all we need to know about the S6.
