Samsung may have a new wireless charger released alongside the Galaxy S9
Samsung's hokey puck of a fast convertible wireless charger is one of the most convenient such devices you can grab for your Qi-enabled smartphone (yes, that includes the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X). As these things go, it is even somewhat stylish, and doubles as a stand via the rotating base. Needless to say, there is an LED indicator, too, that shows when the device is properly centered and charging.

At first blush, there isn't much more to improve, as it is also a powerful 10W charger under the hood, but Samsung may beg to differ, and, rumor has it, it is prepping a new version to be released alongside the Galaxy S9 in early spring. There have already been tips that a refreshed DeX desktop station will be launched together with the S9, so nothing is stopping Samsung to take second swing at wireless greatness now, is it?

Apple's AirPower charger is yet to make a cameo, but it promises to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and a set of AirPods simultaneously, so Samsung may have an answer along those lines. The Galaxy S9 is said to be unveiled on February 25th, or the Sunday before the MWC expo kicks in, so there are about two months to wait before we know for sure.

Like anyone that buys Apple stuff will buy some charger made by Samsung. You have a point though. If it wasnt compatible with the new iPhones I'm sure iPhonearena would let you know.

"but it promises to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and a set of AirPods simultaneously, so Samsung may have an answer along those lines" You mean an evolution to what they've had in 2016 ( http://sck.pm/LX )?
