Galaxy S10 Powershare will wirelessly charge other phones

In the past, Samsung has been criticized, warranted or not, for copying Apple’s designs and features. These days, Samsung may be accused of settings its eyes on the smartphone market’s new #2.

Samsung mid-range phones to get wireless charging too

Just after launching the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh made a promise that is both puzzling yet also daring. The OEM was going to shift its focus towards bringing new features to mid-range phones first before the higher end flagships. That has already started with the Galaxy A7 (2018) and its triple cameras, with Samsung's first quad camera expected to debut next week. Now it seems Samsung will also be adding an existing feature to its mid-range in the form of wireless charging for Galaxy A and even Galaxy J phones.
