“The Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is now expected to integrate reverse wireless charging as well, with reports stating it’ll be a fast charging standard.”
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup is inching closer to launch, and with each passing day, we are ever so closer to finding almost every single thing about the upcoming flagship smartphone from the Korean electronics giant. The latest information comes via Chinese technology news portal MyDrivers, which has spotted information in the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification of the device, revealing that it will include reverse wireless charging.
The reverse wireless charging was first seen in a production smartphone with the Huawei Mate 20. However, the standard used for reverse wireless charging was considerably slow, which is where Samsung is expected to improve in performance. In the FCC certification, Samsung is said to have introduced 9W reverse wireless charging — a standard that is deemed to be faster than many default charging standards used by many recent smartphones, including even the Apple iPhone.
With the new reverse wireless charging feature, Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup is said to be compatible with any smartphone that supports the Qi wireless charging standard. The Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is set to go all-out in terms of grabbing the headlines with all the features, beginning with launching multiple variants in a bid to cater to multiple segments of the premium smartphone market. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are expected to house triple-camera setups, possibly with the new high resolution sensors capable of producing super-sampled images.
Other features of the Galaxy S10 include either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9820 SoC (depending on region), the optional Qualcomm X50 modem for the 5G variant, 6-12GB of RAM, and storage ranging from 128GB to a whopping 1TB. All variants of the Galaxy S10 are also expected to get Samsung’s new Infinity-O display with the hole-in-display camera, while the new chassis style is also expected to move the fingerprint sensor underneath the display. This falls in line with the latest report, since the rear panel will need as much real estate as possible to implement the wireless charging setup.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is expected to be unveiled on February 20th ahead of Mobile World Congress 2019, where the company is also expected to launch the novel and much-awaited foldable smartphone.
