Samsung's Wireless Charger Duo is a device that allows a phone and a smartwatch to charge simultaneously using the Qi standard. Now, Evan Blass asserts the OEM has come up with a new generation of this product. Called the Wireless Charger Pad Trio, it calls the Apple AirPower to mind, although the two may not work exactly the same way.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Samsung has a new kind of wireless charger in the making. This is in accordance with a new leak from Evan Blass' Patreon page, in which it is alleged that this product is to be called the Wireless Charger Pad Trio. This suggests it is to be a successor to the Duo product.

The render supplied as part of this leak appears to back this up. It shows a sleek flat rectangular accessory that, like images of the possibly upcoming Apple AirPower mat, gives the impression of being able to accommodate 2 to 3 phones at once.

However, this putative Samsung take on such an accessory also has a section at one end with a designated target-like zone clearly intended for smartwatches.

Therefore, this Trio may not pack coils in profusion on the inside as the AirPower might. Nevertheless, its new leak also suggests it may come with USB type C to C charging, which may imply support for a faster power standard (by the standards of wireless charging, that is).

To date, there are no indications as to when or if this charger may launch, although it is possible it could join the Galaxy Z Fold2 in doing so in September 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
