Although most smartphone makers have begun adopting wireless charging technology for their flagships, it still depends on the contact between the device and the charging board. Earlier Huawei confirmed its interest in wireless charging technology and most likely we’ll see something innovative from the Chinese tech giant. Plus, Apple has also applied for a patent of a long-range wireless charging. But it’s naïve to think Samsung will leave behind. Today it became known Samsung has filed its own patent application for the long-distance wireless charging.
According to the docs and photos provided by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), Samsung’s technology works in the following way. It collects power on a particular device in the room and uses a reflective board to provide a transmission avoiding obstacles encountered. Thanks to it all devices in the room can be charged wirelessly. So no need to worry about a powerlessness of any device working on a battery power.
Of course, this patent cannot guarantee that it will appear on the market soon and become a real consumer product. But in the near future, similar wireless charging technologies will eventually come true. This is only a matter of time.
