A new Samsung blog predicts that 2015 will be "a landmark year for smartphone wireless charging".
Seho Park, Principal Engineer, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, writes on the company’s "Samsung Tomorrow" blog that 2015 will see "the growth of wireless charging deployment, as wireless charging stations will begin to appear in more and more public places."
He details the potential benefits of the technology, including its increased accessibility and ease of use.
"Wireless charging comes with several benefits to the consumer that will bring about a new wave of multiple device integration and convenience. The most obvious benefit is the absence of power cords that are so easily tangled, broken or lost.
"Consumers have been crying out for a simple wireless charging solution that frees them from the need to carry several different chargers for multiple devices. The goal has been to provide them with the ability to utilise one wireless charging dock that is compatible with all the devices they already own as well as all the devices they buy in the near future."
The blog is widely being seen as a tease ahead of the release of the Galaxy S6, with Park hinting that Samsung might aim to take leadership in this emerging space.
"Samsung will accelerate to democratise this wireless charging technology with compelling smartphones," Park writes. "With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before."
