World's first phones with fast wireless charging, Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+, get fully juiced in 2 hours

18

Samsung's latest, the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are finally here! Apart from wooing us with some pretty exciting hardware specs, the new Samsung entrants also boast the same design that can be found on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but that's certainly not everything interesting surrounding the two new handsets.

These two will also feature fast wireless charging, a technology that is claimed by Samsung as being a pioneering one. Essentially, it pairs the traits of Samsung's Fast Charging with the wireless charging tech, allowing you to power up the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ without having to deal with cables and whatnot.

In order to benefit from this feature, you'll need a couple of things - a Galaxy Note5 or an S6 edge+ (duh!) and a separately-sold charging pad that heralds the new technology. It seems that the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+, which come with 3,000mAh batteries at the back, will take 120 minutes to get fully charged in a wireless fashion. 

Pricing for the fast wireless charging pad has not been announced yet. As soon as we know more, you will too.
