Samsung Wireless Charger+ charging pad reportedly on the way
A rumor suggests that Samsung is developing a new wireless charging device, the Wireless Charger+. A trademark filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) made on June 7th was spotted by tipster Mukul Sharma. The application, with filing number 018713898, is still awaiting review. The listing shows that the gadget is in Nice class 9, suggesting that the device will be a “wireless battery charger”.
No further information about the device, such as its design or maximum charging ability, was included in the files. It could be that this rumored gadget is similar to the wireless charging devices that Samsung launched earlier this year, the Super Fast Wireless Charger Pad and Duo Super Fast Wireless Charger Pad.
These new products can wirelessly charge Samsung smartphones, such as the S21 Ultra 5G, up to 15 W. The gadget supports other Qi-compatible devices, such as an iPhone 11 Pro Max, though the charging power is limited to 7.5 W. The Duo's second pad can be used to simultaneously charge your Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Buds alongside your phone.
The charging pads have a built-in fan and sensors to prevent overheating, and can detect nearby objects that could interfere with the charging. An LED light indicates the charging status of your device which can be disabled should you wish. The gadgets have a slim design, measuring 91 x 91 x 18.3 mm (~3.6 x 3.6 x 0.7-in). Samsung has not confirmed these rumors, and it is currently unclear when the device could launch.
