When unveiling the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone with wireless charging packed inside, Nokia said that the technology is expected to go mainstream soon, and is seems that we’re now one step closer to that.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics has just announced that it has started the mass production of a thin wireless charging module for mobile devices
, which means that it might not be too long before it makes it inside new smartphones from the South Korean vendor.
The module is 40 percent thinner than rival solutions and is placed inside the battery cover. Thus, handsets featuring the technology will remain thin, while providing users with the ability to charge them without plugging in.
There’s no specific info available on the devices that will sport the technology inside them, but rumor
has it that Samsung will bring it to high-end phones such as the successor of Galaxy S III.
