Intel is reportedly looking into means to pack future smartphones with wireless charging technology, new reports suggest.
Through this move, Intel is reportedly looking for means to allow smartphone
users to wirelessly charge their devices from ultrabooks without the need to have them placed in a specific position.
The company would include ultrabooks with the necessary software and with a transmitter, while offering lower power consumption.
The feature, however, is expected to become available only sometime in the second half of the next year, a recent article on DigiTimes
reads. The company might not make the wireless charging platform available for broad use, but only inside a small number of handsets.
Intel is not the only company tapping into the capabilities of wireless charging. Samsung has already presented such a solution, but might not launch it before the end of 2012.
