Wireless charging is still in its infancy, but it might become ubiquitous faster than most would expect. A recently discovered patent filed by Samsung describes a new approach to wireless charging, showing new designs that allow two devices to be charged simultaneously, usually one smartphone/phablet and a smart bracelet/fitness tracker/smartwatch.

Samsung's current wireless chargers are flat and only allow their users to charge a smartphone/phablet. The three designs described by the patent mentioned earlier show taller devices that Samsung plans to turn into virtually universal chargers. Although there are not many tablets or cameras on the market to feature wireless charging capabilities, the patent reveals that the new wireless chargers will work with a wide range of devices, including slates and cameras, as well as electronic glasses, and other wearables.

Since Samsung filed for the patent in January 2016 and it has been recently published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, it is likely to see at least one wireless charger with a whole new design showing up next to the Galaxy Note 7 in early August. This has not been confirmed by Samsung, so we should take it with a grain of salt for the time being.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
