Samsung’s next wireless charger will juice up two devices at once

Samsung is reportedly planning to release a two-in-one charger for its smartphones and the upcoming Galaxy Watch. Packaging for the Wireless Charger Duo has leaked ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked press conference, which will be held at Barclays Center on August 9th.



The Wireless Charger Duo box reveals that it’s capable of charging either two Qi-compatible phones simultaneously or one phone and the Galaxy Watch. Both placement areas support fast wireless charging. The upcoming Note 9 is rumored to feature a 4,000mAh battery, and Samsung has registered a new wireless charger that could improve upon the already-fast wireless recharge capabilities of recent Galaxy smartphones. It’s not yet clear whether the Wireless Charger Duo will be capable of that higher output.

After early rumors hinted at Samsung making a return to Google’s Wear OS with its next smartwatch, that’s looking less and less likely. The Galaxy Watch is believed to again run the company’s own Tizen software.

The Wireless Charger Duo comes as Apple continues working away on its AirPower mat, which was first announced at last September’s iPhone event. While two-way chargers are relatively common, Apple has said that AirPower will simultaneously charge three devices — such as an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. In June, Bloomberg reported that Apple has faced “a series of technical hurdles” during the course of AirPower’s development, such as making sure the charging mat doesn’t overheat and working with its “complex” circuitry.

Again, Samsung’s Wireless Charger Duo just covers two devices at once. The company’s Icon X earbuds don’t support wireless charging as of yet. But if you’re planning to pick up both the Note 9 and Galaxy Watch, it might prove a convenient (albeit probably very pricey) accessory.

Facebook has now enlisted Qualcomm to provide the tech for its gigabit Wi-Fi project that is meant to make sending data through routers more efficient and increase internet speeds. It’s called the Terragraph Project and it’s been in the works since Facebook first announced it at the company’s 2016 annual developer conference, describing the project as a “multi-node wireless system focused on bringing high-speed internet connectivity to dense urban areas.”New Qualcomm chipsets will be integrated with the Terragraph technology so manufacturers can hopefully upgrade routers to be able to send data at the 60GHz frequency, which will increase broadband connections to higher speeds.

A Qualcomm spokesperson described it as a solution for both rural areas and urban areas that simply have spotty Wi-Fi in certain regions. Field tests are set to begin in the middle of next year, but there’s no word on when the Terragraph Project will actually go live. We’ve reached out to Facebook for more information.

Qualcomm is also making a 5G small cell chipset for phone manufacturers and carriers, which the company announced today as well. Qualcomm is already working with “early access” partners. There’s no word on exactly who those carriers will be, but given previous partnerships, it’s likely Nokia and Samsung could be among them. Samples of chipsets will become available next year, meaning that the product release will be further down the line than that.
