Samsung working on wireless charging through magnetic resonance, coming later half of 2014
posted by Chris P. / Oct 15, 2013, 3:21 AM
Unlike the current method of magnetic induction, which requires that your smartphone is more or less kissing your charging pad, Samsung is said to be working on a method that will work with magnetic resonance. This means that within a certain range from the pod, you could be talking, texting, or watching a movie, and the hope is that all the while your smartphone will be simultaneously charging. To achieve this, Samsung is reported to be working with New Zealand's PowerbyProxi, a company it very recently invested $4 million into.
We ought to admit, this sounds pretty exciting, though it remains to be seen just how well implemented the feature will be, if at all.
Wow that would be an incredible innovation if it comes to be effective as it sounds.

This would be TRUE-WIRELESS Charging and not the current so called 'wirelss charging' where you can't pick up your phone to take a call whilst charging your phone. Considering all the comments/criticism aimed at Samsung lately about 'gimmicky' features (especially by Nokia fanboys) its hilarious that many don't see the pointlessness of the existing and wildly popular 'wireless' charging

Hail you who has already seen into the future, "Samsung Phones now exploding in your face while calling or in hands while using rather than on table while charging", many times Iphones exploded, phonearena did pretty well to bring us the news, I personally was not happy with that- we are talking about the danger that faced human lives, out of an attempt to make it better. I remembered reading about S3 exploding as well, but thank goodness that such news has disappeared into the tin air. Technology is still in its evolution, calm down as this news will in the future become a common features in smartphones. Except your a born sadist, a prophet of doom!

Oh yeah baby... Between this and "AirDroid", i'll never have to plug in my phone again... Oxidized connector plugs on my phone don't bother me now,,, No more plugging in, yeAH. Hopefully this has less chance of battery explosions too.

I hope wireless charging will eventually go with an open source standard or at least pick one standard and just use that. It's better for the consumer and environment than having 20 different ways to charge your electronics wirelessly.
