Samsung to introduce reverse wireless charging with Galaxy S10 series

23 January 2019 2

With each passing day, the rumors of Galaxy S10 series are gaining momentum and with each passing day, we have something exciting regarding the 10th anniversary Galax S lineup phones. It is almost final that Samsung will be announcing at least four variants of S10 series including Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 Lite and Galaxy S10 X with 5G connectivity. All the variants will have a slightly different design and features.

As per the latest info, all the aforementioned S10 series phones will be bringing 'reverse wireless charging' support. An alleged demo booth picture leaked online which reveals the key features of the upcoming Galaxy S10. The image reveals the S10 will be featuring a cinematic display which means you expect it to be specially optimized to watch video content.


The second key feature will be an under-glass fingerprint scanner. The third key feature reconfirms it will have triple cameras like the Plus variant. Last but not the least the device will be capable to charge reversely like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

The leaked image clearly indicates how much attention Samsung pays to this new feature as it is placed right after the triple cameras. Unfortunately, it is still in the dark whether Samsung will also be using the Qi standard like the Mate 20 Pro but the company's Gear IconX and Galaxy Watch lacks Qi standard support. It seems like Samsung fans will have to wait till February 20th to know more about this feature. If it does support Qi standard, how much watts can it charge reversed?

Samsung already confirmed their next Unpacked event on February 20th ahead of the MWC 2019. The S10 devices except the 5G model are expected to be available for pre-orders soon after the announcement with a release on March 8th.

"Lite" suggests toned down specs. And though the official specs aren't yet out, there's the reverse charging feature even for the S10 Lite, which already might be shipping with lesser battery capacity??
