Samsung just unveiled that its newest phone, the Galaxy Note8, will feature Powermat technology, according to a recent release.
Powermat and Samsung have reportedly been involved in a partnership since 2015. The duo is working together to embed Inductive Wireless Charging into various devices and to make wireless charging a standard staple for mobile devices. Amen to that.
“Powermat continues to be the largest provider of wireless charging in public venues such as restaurants, coffee shops, universities, and more,” according to the release.
Galaxy Note8 users will be able to charge their phones wherever they go given that Powermat’s charging spots are located in various public venues across the globe.
“It’s only natural that the Galaxy Note8 will include inductive wireless charging compatible with both WPC and AirFuel Inductive,” Vice President of Power Solution, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics Kisun Lee said in a release.
Samsung knows what it’s doing when it comes to phones; the company won “The Best Smartphone 2017” with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ by EISA. However, the Galaxy Note8 reportedly boasts several features that the S8 and S8+ do not, including the ability to write on the screen with the S-Pen, dual cameras on the back that allow for dual capture, and the option to turn live messages into animated GIFs.
“By the end of 2017, there will be millions of devices in the market with embedded Powermat technology, making Powermat’s technology the de facto standard for wireless charging,” Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski said. “This takes us one step forward in materializing the Powermat vision of a world without charging cables.”
