Magnetic resonance wireless charging by Samsung

In present times when people are seen busy with their handheld devices, particularly smartphones, it is very obvious that the battery life of these smartphones and their quick recharging will be next best thing customers will be asking for.

Keeping that in mind, Samsung is really targeting the mid of 2014 to launch its own magnetic resonance driven remote charging technology. The source is ETNews, a Korean website. According to the news, the Samsung Ventures Investment Corporation has invested $4 million in PowerbyProxi, a New Zealand company. The benefit of magnetic resonance charging is that it does not require physical contact to any power outlet and can work through non-magnetic materials too.

Now with various types of technology lining up for the same wireless charging goal, the industry is divided among different standards. So it is very much a matter to see how Samsung approaches the deal as Samsung is a member of both WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) and A4WP (Alliance For Wireless Power), where else PowerbyProxi supports the Qi standard and is a part of WPC only.

On the other hand, Samsung is also not the only player searching for the solution, Qualcomm with Power Matters Alliance is also trying something similar, when some others are trying to use the Cota technology which can enable a device to charge from a distance of 30 feet without any wire or pads.
