Phones that offer the ability to charge wirelessly are a dime a dozen, but one of the unique and pretty cool features offered with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was its ability to reverse wireless charge. What this means is that in addition to being able to charge itself wirelessly, it can reverse that process and act as a wireless charger to other devices.
Now according to a report from Gizmodo UK, it seems that they have heard from their sources that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 could feature reverse wireless charging as well, with the feature expected to be known as “Powershare”, although details on the feature are a bit scarce at the moment, but for the most part we imagine that it should do pretty much the same as what the Huawei Mate 20 Pro does.
It is also unclear as to how big of a battery the Galaxy S10 will have, and whether or not this feature will be applicable across all the Galaxy S10 models (including the alleged cheaper flat screen variant), or if it could be exclusive to the higher-end models only. That being said, the jury is still out on whether or not this is a useful feature or simply a novelty.
A recent test done by Android Authority found that the charging speeds offered by the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was extremely slow, meaning that if you were hoping to quickly recharge another device, think again, although it might come in handy if you have a device on its last legs and you’re trying to keep it alive until you get to a charger.
