Wireless charging is really a backseat feature when it comes to smartphones and the reason for that is simply because the feature isn’t as nearly useful as it sounds.
Sure you can just place your smartphone on a wireless charging pad or stand, have it charge, and you don’t have to use a cable to connect to your smartphone.
Other than that, wireless charging is a second thought that doesn’t get much attention and what matters most these days is Quick Charge and Power Delivery fast charging.
However, the Huawei Mate 20 smartphone is changing things up a little with the smartphone itself being the wireless charger. Yes, the charger is actually able to wirelessly charge other Qi-compatible smartphones.
All you have to do is just go into the settings and activate wireless charging for other Qi-compatible devices. Then just like that, you can turn over the Mate 20 Pro, and place a Qi smartphone on top of the Mate 20 to wirelessly charge.
Lots of Charging Power?
Most might think that the wireless charging speed from a smartphone is going to be pretty slow, but in fact, the charging rate from Mate 20 is 15W. That said, is that the charging speed that’s actually given to the smartphones that it charges?
Well, the answer to that question is a pretty big no.
In fact, the charging speed for most smartphones from charging with the Mate 20 Pro is going to either be at a 5W standard wireless charging speed. Or lower than that.
You can find even more information on this topic right here. Ultimately, a wireless charging smartphone is a really cool idea that makes wireless charging more accessible and known.
A person might even use wireless charging more like how the Huawei Mate 20 has implemented it, as they can offer their phone for someone else to charge their phone.
Other than that, it’s not exactly the breakthrough that you and many other people think it is. In terms of charging power though.
The concept of it is absolutely awesome, though.
