After teasing the camera features last week on the 'Next Galaxy' smartphone, the company has now teased the fast charging feature of the handset. In another official blog post, a Samsung executive seemingly confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will feature wireless charging.
The South Korean company late on Tuesday shared a tweet saying, "I am #TheNextGalaxy. See how I give more time to others at #Unpacked." Samsung Mobile's tweet accompanied a video that included taglines such as "the faster I am", "the more that gets done", "And the more time I can give to others." The video is thought to be talking about the powerful performance of the Galaxy S6, which is likely to be backed by the new Exynos 7 Octa chipset, apart from fast charging support that's also tipped by the lightning logo used.
Recently, Samsung announced that it started mass production of mobile application processors on its 14nm FinFET process technology. The company claimed that the new 14nm FinFET will enable up to 20 percent higher speeds and 35 percent less power consumption. The first Exynos 7 Octa is likely to be a 64-bit SoC; though no further announcement has been made about the specifications of the chipset.
In another Twitter teaser, Samsung shared an image with a tagline that read, "Get more done. Get more time" on Twitter while also said, "I can give more time to others. I am #TheNextGalaxy." The tweet once again tips fast charging support.
In the meanwhile, Samsung's Seho Park, Principal Engineer IT and Mobile Division, on Tuesday in a blog post titled "Wireless Smartphone Charging as an Industry Standard" talked about the advancement of the wireless charging technology.
Park went on to suggest that 2015 will be a "landmark year for smartphone wireless charging" and said, "It is expected that 2015 will be a landmark year for the growth of wireless charging deployment, as wireless charging stations will begin to appear in more and more public places. Samsung will accelerate to democratize this wireless charging technology with compelling smartphones. With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before." The statement certainly hints towards the inclusion of the wireless charging feature in the Galaxy S6, the firm's next major launch of the year.
Park added, "Samsung has provided wireless charging covers and pads as a core accessory alongside many of our flagship smartphones such as the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 in 2013 and the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 last year."
We will have to wait till March 1 to see what more surprises does the new Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphone pack.
