OnePlus explains why the 6 doesn’t have wireless charging

"We don't really feel the need to add wireless charging. We're not going to add a feature just for the sake of it," said OnePlus officials when asked about the OnePlus 6. Apparently, having to buy a wireless charger separately is considered a barrier to entry, another strike against including the feature. And of course, the company points to the increased complexity (and price) of adding support for wireless charging. For many this is a non-issue. Dash Charge is just insanely fast and you can top off your phone for a few minutes in the morning and not worry about the battery for the rest...

Counterclockwise: OLED screens challenge old-fashioned LCDs

The cathode ray tube was revolutionary - it brought screens to the home, before it you had to go to the cinema to watch a movie. In the last couple of decades CRT was displaced by LCD - liquid crystal displays - but now LCDs themselves are under attack from OLED - organic light emitting diodes. Our poll shows that people prefer OLED, but since it's a relatively new tech, few phones use this type of display. Samsung was an early mover in the field with 2004's X120, which had a 1.8" OLED display with 128 x 128 pixel resolution. The number of OLED-packing phones has grown significantly since...



Samsung Galaxy S10 series to feature wireless reverse charging

After the Huawei Mate 20 Pro debuted back in October last year, a very interesting function was introduced for the initially time in handsets. We are talking about the wireless rever charging system, that would allow users to put an additional cameraphone, what supports wireless charging, on the back of the Mate 20 Pro, part of the battery’s power on the Huawei’s smartphone would start to be wirelessly transferred to the other cameraphone. Even though the function seems to be Really interesting, it yet needs to mature in order to be properly used, when all, tests performed by the folks at Smartphone Arena specify that the cameraphone was capable to transfer only 1% every 10 minutes to a Galaxy Note 9. Samsung galaxy s10 series to feature wireless reverse charging Apparently, the fairly same function introduced by Huawei will be packed into the Galaxy S10 line. A image on the Samsung Members Community site reveals buttons on a controller that visitors to Samsung demo booth will press in order to sight few videos related to the upcoming Galaxy S10 trio. Pushing the button on top plays an introductory video about the upcoming handset. The second button reveals off handset’s cinematic display, whereas the third plays a video teasing the in-display ultra-sonic fingerprint camera. The fourth button starts a video focused on the triple-camera setup, whereas the fifth and final button showcases a video related to the handset’s wireless reverse charging feature. Samsung decided to call the new feature Powershare, and it is not expected to be any faster than Huawei’s solution with the Mate 20 Pro. As result, its usefulness is questionable at the moment, however yet, is cool to see companies experimenting new attributes as long those features do not compromise the usability or pose risks to the smartphone and users. In addition there still a concern regarding the battery capacity of the new Galaxy S10 gadgets, because this particular function would subtract juice from the handset to transfer to an additional, a generous amount of battery should be necessary. The most recent gossips mean that the Galaxy S10E will be equipped with a 3100mAh battery, even though the Galaxy S10 will arrive with a 3,500mAh item, and at some point 4,100mAh for the Galaxy S10 Plus version. The Mate 20 Pro has 4,200mAh for comparison, and we believe that any volume Here 4,000mAh turns the feature questionable. The Galaxy S10 5G variant, in an additional hand, is said to come with a 5,000mAh battery. https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1086427152449294336 The Wireless Reverse Charging System feature on the Galaxy S10 was probably one of the attributes teased in the Unpacked occasion teaser. The short video showed the picture of a wholy charged battery icon that may perhaps have hinted at the fresh phones’ capacity to charge up devices that support wireless charging. Samsung’s Unpacked occasion is scheduled for February 20th. But taking into consideration how intense the rumor mill is for Galaxy S10, there are chances that we will get to have idea all the details of the device even before its launch. Via
