Now the news of the technology, though is expected not to launch before late 2014, comes right after Samsung had announced of a similar wireless magnetic resonance-based smartphone charging pads, which is also expected to launch around the probable release date of the next Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in the Christmas season of 2014.  

However, the Sony-announced technology is mainly compatible with the Qi chargers and probably the next generation smartphones of Sony Xperia. Other specifications as pointed out by Wireless Power Consortium include that the charger is two times efficient than the current wired chargers and needs only 10-15 watts of electricity to charge a smartphone in less than an hour.

But it seems that the competition to come up with a great wireless charger is not only limited within Sony and Samsung only, as another Japanese tech firm, Rohm, who specializes in semiconductors has come with a ‘Control Chip’, that will thwart chances of a smartphone to burst into flames while getting charged in a faster rate

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
