Motorola is currently the only well-known and globally established brand which does not have even a single smartphone with native support for wireless charging. It makes use of shell to provide this functionality to select G series phones but nothing is available independently. This is definitely a surprising situation which it is appearing to be changing in the near future.
A Motorola wireless charger has now been spotted on the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) website. The listing shows that the device bears the model number CHR-066. It features shape and design similar to most of the modern wireless chargers available in the market. It means you will get to see the same disc-like shape where you will be able to place a compatible smartphone to charge wirelessly.
The listing reveals that it has a soft touch non-slip surface and base to ensure that the smartphone does not slip on the surface. It is a 10W charger and has an LED indicator which turns Green when it is charging the phone. This will serve as an alert notification to help users know that the charger is working fine. It also has Motorola branding for self-explanatory reasons.
The listing does not reveal any other details including what Motorola phones will be compatible with it. Since it is likely to unveil Moto G7 series next, we can expect the wireless charging pad to get official at the same time. But there is a possibility that it might be exclusive to the flagship Moto Z series for the time being. These are only speculations at the moment and we will keep you updated as more information will appear.
