I sometimes forget to put my watch on the charger at night so this would be clutch since I can get a day and a half on 50% on my galaxy watch. And I'm definitely picking up the new wireless buds so I'm definitely ready for the S10+ and all it's features!

For as long as it took them to adopt Wireless Charging in the first place (and their half-a$$ed implementation once they finally did), I really wouldn't hold my breath...

Haha this rumored 9w reverse charging is better than apples normal 5w charge.

In all fairness to Huawei, their new Freebuds charges wirelessly on the Mate 20 Pro. Huawei was just dumb in the way they promoted this feature, they should've shown it working in the same way Samsung is going to do, which is charging your earbuds and smartwatch.

Huawei version is slow as a snail though. Samsung rumored 9w vs Huawei 2.5w. I think it's safe to say Huawei implementation is crap.

That's not the point, read the article, then my comment again, and you will get the point Inwas trying to make.

It would be even cooler if you could be charging your phone via wire, and charging your headphones or smartwatch via wireless from the phone. That way you aren't depleting your phone battery. I honestly don't see how they could fail to do this. It's the perfect hotel travel situation.

decent copy of Huawei reverse wireless charging and that is all worth to say...article have, of course a decent amount of bias toward Huawei but that is understandable for PA writings.

Considering average battery size in category - no they can't, it's that simple and useless.

I like the innovation, but this is not practical for using the phone, while charging. A phone upside down is only meant for you to have the phone down while at your desk, etc...

People don’t charge their watch or ear buds while the phone is in pocket, they do so when the phone is at desk. Plus, these accesories get charged very quick due to their minuscule battery.

Would find this useful if the phone can keep itself powered up for more than a day. Why would I want to give away my phone's charge only to later on needing to charge it in the middle of the day? A wireless powerbank would probably be more useful for me.

Why would you need to carry power bank when you have a phone that gives a day of battery life. Charging wireless ear bud or watch sometimes won’t discharge your phone by 50%.
