Samsung Galaxy S10 Series to Support Wireless Reverse Charging

Last year in October, Huawei launched the Mate 20 Pro that bought a very intriguing feature along with it- wireless reverse charging. Yes, reverse charging, now with the Mate 20 Pro you can charge another device as well. Yes, the feature is quite interesting and valuable, but it still lacks development. According to the source, the Mate 20 Pro was only able to charge a Samsung Galaxy 9 to 1% in 10 minutes, which definitely is way too slow.

And, now looks like Samsung is bringing this feature in its Galaxy S10 series. A recent picture posted on the Samsung Members Community site showcasing buttons on a controller that takes the viewers to the Samsung demo booth showcasing some videos of the upcoming Galaxy S10 trio. The first button shows the introduction video, second plays the cinematic display, the third shows the in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner tease, the fourth play a video showcasing the triple camera setup and the fifth shows the feature in the limelight- wireless reverse charging.

Samsung’s new reverse charging is going to be called Powershare and to say it will be faster than the Mate 20 Pro, well lets be honest, it’s not so it does get a question mark as to the need for the feature, but overall yes, its a new feature, and hopes are in for the companies to improve it in time. Also, with the feature that will allow you to give your battery power to other handsets, also brings forth a query as to what battery capacity will the Galaxy S10 series come with. After all, if you are to give your device power to another device, what’s left for your device. Well, the Galaxy S10E will come with a 3100mAh battery, the S10 with a 3,500mAh and the Galaxy S10 Plus with a 4,100mAh battery. Those who don’t know, the Mate 20 Pro has a slightly bigger battery at 4,200mAh. And, with the Galaxy 9 charging only 1% in 10 minutes, anything less than 4,000mAh does make the feature work, a skeptical option. The Galaxy S10 5G variant, on the other hand, is expected to have a 5,000mAh battery.

The three Samsung variants are expected to be ready for release on their unveiling at the February 20th event. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite with a 5.8-inch display and single camera on front and back. The Samsung Galaxy S10 vanilla 6.1-inch curved edge display with punch hole front camera and two sensors in the back. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ with a 6.4-inch display, two punch the camera in front and triple back camera setup. The former might even come with a side mounted fingerprint scanner while the others will have it embedded under the screen. Expectations are high for the foldable Galaxy F to be unveiled as well.

The launch for the Galaxy S10 series is expected on March 8th and a South Korean launch by 29th March for the 5G Galaxy S10 version. The 5G version is said to be labeled the Galaxy S10X and as per rumors flying by, the device will have a 6.7 inch Super AMOLED display and 10/12GB RAM and 512GB/1TB internal storage. The modem will be Exynos 5100 5G and shall have two cameras at the front and four in the back. After South Korea, the S10X will soon be on way to the US with possibilities of being a Verizon exclusive and other markets soon.
