Samsung Galaxy S10 Can Transform into a Wireless Power Bank

The Galaxy S9 line of smartphones was a smashing hit last year and offered plenty of new features that impressed the market. With the Galaxy S10 coming up very soon, Samsung has scattered clues that they will have something extra up their sleeve during the unveiling in late February.

With the impending launch looming, the Galaxy S10 line from Samsung's insider leaks and information have been making its way on the internet, with the information ranging from build pictures all the way to the device's naming convention. Information about the Galaxy S10's specifications has also been floating online, with a new major feature.

Wireless charging is fast becoming a common feature for most flagship level smartphones, offering a high level of convenience for users. Now Samsung says that the Galaxy S10 will offer reverse wireless charging capabilities and will be dubbed as the "Powershare" feature.

This is a game changer since now the Galaxy S10 can turn into a wireless power bank as it can charge any wireless-charging capable device. The Galaxy S10's wireless charging coil is located on its rear, so holding up a Qi wireless-charging supported device is as easy as holding it up against the Galaxy S10's back.

A drawback on Samsung's wireless charging technology is that it is still slower compared to its fast wired charging technology, with observers left hoping that Samsung will implement fast wireless charging technology with the Galaxy S10. Another drawback is that neither the Galaxy Gear smartwatch nor the Gear IconX earbuds support Qi wireless charging technology, so it would be interesting to see how all this would come into place.

There's also speculation that the Galaxy S10 will have 12GB of RAM paired with 1TB of internal storage, which is a big step up compared to the Galaxy Note9. The amount of storage and RAM will ensure a smooth, lag-free experience for a long time.

With the launch pegged on February 20, official information about the Galaxy S10 line will finally become public, so be sure to stay tuned here for more information.
