New Samsung Charger Takes On Apple AirPower
A leaked image shows a new two-in-one Samsung wireless charger will have the ability to charge two Galaxy devices at once.
The new wireless charger will be able to work with two Qi-compatible smartphones or one smartphone and a Galaxy Watch.
This two-in-one feature is going head-to-head with rival Apple who has been stalling its AirPower charging mat which can charge multiple devices simultaneously like an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods.
The AirPower was unveiled last year in September but due to a number of issues regarding heat management and electrical circuitry the product has been delayed with it tipped to be released in two months.
The image – leaked by insider Roland Quandt – shows the packaging with the product named ‘Wireless Charger Duo’. Both areas will support fast wireless charging.

According to Quandt the charger will be £55 ($97). The Samsung fast charger which supports one device is $199 on the Australian site.
This wireless charger is set to be officially launched at the company’s upcoming unpacked event on August 9 where the Galaxy Note 9 will be revealed.
