Sony patent lets devices leech power off others wirelessly

Sony patent lets devices leech power off others wirelessly

Despite years of promises, wireless charging has yet to really took root in the consumer’s mind. It is still not an in-demand feature in smartphones the way waterproofing or, to some degree, microSD card slots, have become. In a chicken or egg situation, wireless charging pads, especially in public places, aren’t as common as well, making it inconvenient to rely on wireless technology? But what if topping off your smartphone means simply just placing it nearby another? That is the interesting, and partly scary, scenario that Sony’s latest patent paints, where one device can recharge itself by sucking out power from another. Wirelessly, of course.

Xperia XA1 also goes into pre-order in the UK

On the heels of Sony kicking off the pre-order period for the Xperia XZ Premium in the UK, retailer Clove has also put up the pre-sale pages for the Xperia XA1. The smallest and least “equipped” of the four Xperia smartphones announced at MWC 2017, the Xperia XA1 is, by no means, an underdog. The specs definitely match many of the mid-range models this time of year but, this time, it appears that Sony may have gotten its pricing right.
