According to South Korean media, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will support wireless charging. No special case for wireless charging will be required. It is said to support the feature from within the chassis.
According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will sport a non-removable battery, due to the aluminium unibody. The Korean tech giant is said to compensate for this by making its next flagship support wireless charging. No wires; no hassle. Additionally, it is said that the smartphones’s extensive accessory ecosystem is also one of the reasons why Samsung is planning to go wireless.
Okay, here’s the problem: if the Galaxy S6 is clad in metal, how does Samsung expect its wireless charging feature to work? This suggests that smartphone will need sport a metal chassis in between two thin layers of glass to make wireless work more efficiently.
Of course, there’s no way for us to confirm if the report is accurate or not. The good news is, the S6’s unveiling is a mere two weeks away. We’ll know on the 1st of March at MWC 2015 is the rumour is true or not.
