Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Could Feature Improved Wireless Charging Technology
We heard previously that Samsung plans to incorporate an improved form of wireless charging technology based on the magnetic resonance method. When implemented, users won’t need the usual charging pad, since a transmitter can charge the device from a few meters away.
Several high-end devices produced by LG and Nokia currently need a special pad to start the charging the process. With the magnetic resonance method, users can even charge the device wirelessly through non-metal, solid object, such as wall. It was reported that the South Korean device manufacturer has invested in PowerbyProxi, a wireless charging company in New Zealand.
The technology could become the new Holy Grail in the tech industry, not just for smartphones and tablets. Laptop users could also benefit from this technology, at least to extend battery life. Magnetic resonance transmitters can be placed in public areas, such as park, café and restaurants; quite similar to how WiFi hotspots are implemented today.
Samsung is obviously keen to implement this technology immediately, possibly on mid-2104. If true, this could mean that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would miss out the new charging solution. However, we could be hopeful that the technology would make a debut along with the Galaxy Note 4.
