Wireless Charging is coming with the Galaxy S3
Rumors are continuing for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the latest one includes a great new feature which few smart phones currently have included with them. That is the concept of wireless charging of the phone’s battery. This concept is known as induction charging and is not exactly brand new, but it is relatively new and looks to be an expanding item in the future. For the Galaxy S3, the latest rumor from The Verge has this feature being included with the phone when it arrives in a few months. If seems that Samsung is going to be delivering a lot of great features with the next generation of the Galaxy S and this is just one of many.
This information is coming from the DDaily in Korea and requires a translation of the page. This is reporting that the induction charging will be done through the battery cover on the coming smart phone. According to the article, Samsung will be using “resonant magnetic induction wireless charging technology” to provide battery charging. One of the great things about the induction charging is that you place your device on a special mat and it can charge multiple devices all at the same time.
Based on the rumored information, the capability to provide for wireless charging will be available for the Galaxy S3, but it will not be included in the basic phone. It will be possible to purchase it as an accessory for your Galaxy S3, potentially to keep the costs down and have consumers purchase one so as to not inflate the price for the smart phone. That is based on the translated article from the DDaily, though The Verge in indicating that it will arrive included in the box when you purchase the phone. With that confusion, one would have to guess as to what is going to happen.
I would assume that it will be included with the basic phone and become a big selling point for Samsung to promote the phone. This would given them an edge over the iPhone until Apple releases the iPhone 5. Even with that, there is no guarantee that Apple will include that in their next phone.
