This month, Samsung held its virtual event where it announced its new devices including the Galaxy Tab A7, Galaxy Fit2, and it announced the Wireless Charger Trio – a new wireless charger that copies the idea of Apple’s AirPower Charging Mat. It’s a single product that can simultaneously and wirelessly charge a phone, earbuds, and watch.
Samsung earlier did not reveal any specifics about the charger at the event, but Samsung’s German and Korean store pages have the Wireless Charging device Trio listed. This way we now get the new details on the charging pad.
According to the details, Samsung’s Charger Trio has six charging coils and can fast-charge Samsung phones up to 9Watt. It will support other Qi devices at up to 5Watt and will support 7.5Watt charging of Apple devices. There are also built-in LED indicators to let you know their charging status. The charger is 240 x 86 x 15.5 mm and weighs in at 320g.
It will come in white or black and will support Samsung flagships (S, Note, Fold, and Z series) all the way back to the Galaxy S6 to the Galaxy Z Fold2. It will support the Galaxy Buds(+), or Galaxy Buds Live, as well as the wireless-charging Galaxy Watch models.
The listing on the page mentions that smartphones can still recharge with cases up to 3mm thick, depending on the material. If the case causes the charger to head up, it will switch to a lower wattage and charge slower. There’s still no word as to exactly when it will go on sale but given the timing of the Samsung Store listings popping up, it might be soon.
