The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are coming to the Mobile World Congress in March, but the South Korean company has spilled the beans about a feature we didn’t expect to see on the phones. Samsung revealed that 2015 is the year of wireless, which makes us think about wireless charging, naturally. It seems that the company will ditch the case or back panel offering wireless charging for the Galaxy S6 and its Edge counterpart and choose to implement wireless charging directly into the phones’ builds. Many are content with having to buy cases or accessories in order to have the wireless charging feature on their Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 4. Users also say that putting wireless charging into the Galaxy S6 might come with a few compromises in design or battery size, which wouldn’t be too appreciated.
Samsung has created quitre a lot of hype surrounding the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, mostly because of their announcement of the code-name Project Zero and their statement that they would start from scratch with the new flagships. Adding wireless charging to that equation will only promote the hype, as many will be glad to have the new feature in their phone. Some say that wireless charging in the Galaxy S6 would dissipate worries about battery life, because carrying a charging pad wouldn’t be that much of a hassle. My opinion is that you would carry the same weight as you would with a regular charger, so nothing is solved in this respect. Still, if you can find wireless charging stations where you travel, it would be a shortcut indeed, but there are few establishments that offer the possibility of Qi wireless charging.
