It seems that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 flagship smartphones could feature reverse wireless charging. Thanks to a photo of what looks like a demo booth controller, speculation has risen that the South Korean manufacturer will take a leaf out of Huawei’s book and include the capability to wirelessly charge other phones with its much-anticipated devices.

An image has appeared on the Korean language version of the Samsung Members community board that seems to suggest the Galaxy S10 phones will come with a reverse wireless charging function. The image shows a controller with Korean labels. According to GSMArena, the text at the top of the controller reads “press button to experience,” and this is followed by a circular button with “S10” written on it. As the image also includes a conveniently placed Samsung-branded item, it is reasonable to start adding one plus one to make two here.

The S10 button is followed by one for the display, one for the fingerprint sensor, and an obvious one that shows three camera icons for the triple camera setup that some members of the flagship range are expected to have. The final button shows a battery icon and an arrow pointing outwards, and it is believed this will demonstrate the Samsung S10 Galaxy smartphones’ ability to offer reverse wireless charging to other devices.

Another source gives the reverse wireless charging ability a specific name: Powershare. It appears Samsung does not want its loyal customers to be excluded from experiencing the novel technology that the rival Huawei Mate 20 Pro has, regardless of the fact that the actual feature seems somewhat lethargic in its process. But it’s believed the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will come with a 4000 mAh battery, so at least it should have enough power resources to enable owners to impress their friends with the reverse wireless charging technology.
