Samsung kicks off mass production of a wireless charging module for mobile devices
Samsung Electro-Mechanics has just kicked off mass production of an extremely thin wireless charging module for mobile devices, and that means that future smartphones like its Galaxy S series might not need any cords to juice up.

What makes Samsung’s wireless charging solution stand out is the fact that charging coil is 40% thinner, and is attached to the inside of the battery cover. This would allow Samsung to keep on making very thin devices, but beef them up with wireless charging capabilities.

We can’t really say which exact products would get this new module, but one obvious candidate is the Samsung Galaxy S III. The S III was touted to come with wireless charging back in early 2012, but this elusive charging never materialized. Of course our wishful thinking immediately hints a future S IV is also a likely candidate. That’s just a speculation though. To know the reality, we’d just have to wait.

Samsung, don't pull this sh*t. Give us the wireless charging that was said to be available by the end of the year for the S3.

Finally (one of these days). This would take care of Sammy's past problems of loose charger connections.

I don't feel need to use wireless charger at all. I even don't see how it could be more user-friendly, It is almost the same way as you charge using charging dock, wireless charging is slower. Also wireless charging is not good for your health!

Wireless charging is convenient for people like me, who goes out a lot and really need to keep a charge on their phone. with out leaving it at a socket and having to babysit it.

You are joking or you just don't understand, wireless charging range is only few millimeters.

Inductive charging is time consuming and inconvenient.......
