Samsung confirms Galaxy S6 will feature wireless charging

Samsung Galaxy S6 buyers will able to charge their high-end smartphone wirelessly, it has been confirmed.

Previous Galaxy S handsets have had removable batteries, which could be swapped on a long journey away from the wall socket.

But Samsung is now apparently moving away from this in favour of juicing up the device by placing it on a charging plate.

After running down a brief history of wireless charging ("In 1891, renowned inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla became the first person to introduce inductive charging..."), and Samsung's role in developing the technology, the blog post hints at what is to come.

"It is expected that 2015 will be a landmark year for the growth of wireless charging deployment, as wireless charging stations will begin to appear in more and more public places," writes Seho Park, principal engineer IT and mobile division at Samsung Electronics.

"Samsung will accelerate to democratise this wireless charging technology with compelling smartphones. With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before."

This is the second feature Samsung has confirmed ahead of the S6 launch.

Last week, another blog post said the S6's camera "will be intelligent and do all the thinking for the users, allowing them to take amazing pictures under any conditions, without having to worry about anything more than just pressing a shutter button".

It also stressed the importance of selfies, so expect a decent front-facing snapper.

The S6 hype train is hitting full speed. The handset will be unveiled a week on Sunday at Mobile World Congress.
