Another day, another rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 feature debunked

plenty of rumors to go around, but it was a pretty cool sounding idea. Magnetic resonance wireless charging differs from current forms of wireless induction charging in that you don't need the device to be in contact with the charging surface. The main benefit for magnetic resonance charging would be in being able to build hidden charging pads into things like countertops or a car dash.This wasn't one of the bigger rumors about the device, and there are still
Given that, it shouldn't be too surprising that the tech won't be in the Galaxy S5. It seems like a technology that needs to mature a bit more, and Samsung may agree. The report saying that the tech won't be in the S5 says that the reason is Samsung doesn't think it is marketable yet. It is certainly on the roadmap though, and eventually we should be seeing magnetic resonance charging in plenty of mobile devices.

Next up, faux leather will be gone from the list of improvements leaving us with the lovable glossy plastic!

Being the odd guy that I am, I spend more time looking at the front of my phone rather than the back, so I place the display and UI at the top of my priorities when I choose a device.

LOL! Sammy is finally learning its lesson. Apple put a patent on this a year ago. They feeling the heat in court Lol!. Seriously, samsung doesn't want to spend a whirl lot of money. They would rather just throw in some gimmicky software features and add some spec bumps, because they know the ?(s)heep will come. No need in messing up their margins.

At last they will launch the same ugly s3 design by adding some "smart" functions nd by adding two more inches to the display saying new design,materials are all difficult for mass production. Same crappy story again and again.
