Galaxy S10+ seen using PowerShare to wirelessly charge new Galaxy Buds

Not long after we exclusively reported that Samsung was working on new wireless earbuds, certifications started popping up, hinting of an impending launch. It’s believed that Samsung will call them the Galaxy Buds as the company is moving its wearable devices to the Galaxy branding. It has done that with the Galaxy Watch and will also do so for the upcoming Galaxy Sport.

A new image has been leaked online by a reliable source which shows a Galaxy S10+ wirelessly charging the Galaxy Buds in their carrying case. Those of you who have been paying attention know that the Galaxy S10+ will have a reverse wireless charging feature.

The image is likely from marketing materials that Samsung has prepared for the upcoming flagship. It clearly shows new wireless earbuds in a carrying case resting on the back of the Galaxy S10+. The LEDs highlight that the earbuds are being charged wirelessly.

We have already reported that the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ will have a feature called PowerShare. It will enable the device to wirelessly charge other devices. The feature will thus be perfect for charging up accessories like the Galaxy Buds and possibly the smartwatches as well. The Galaxy Buds will most likely be unveiled by Samsung on February 20. That’s when it officially launches the Galaxy S10 in San Francisco. The report mentions that they will cost 149 euro ($170).

Samsung is reportedly going to start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ on February 21. In major markets like the United States and South Korea, the devices will likely be released on March 8.

Reverse wireless charging makes a lot more sense now

Agreed, I didn’t think it’s a truly useful feature, but should be enough to charge Samsung’s wearables without having to lug around the charger for those wearables. Although I hope this works with the watches, since the strap on the watches makes it difficult sometimes to lay the watch straight on a surface.
