Samsung finally has an in-house solution for a small but annoying problem: having to charge your phone and smartwatch separately.
The new Samsung Wireless Charger Duo, whose apparent packaging was leaked on Twitter by Roland Quandt on Friday, can charge either two phones or a phone and a Samsung smartwatch at the same time.
While we don’t have a perfect image of the actual device, what’s written on the packaging is more than enough to give us an idea of what it does. The Wireless Charger Duo supports “dual fast wireless charging” and is compatible with Qi certified products.
Samsung has an “Unpacked” event scheduled for August 9, which is probably when the Wireless Charger Duo will launch. That means it will probably be out earlier than Apple’s long-awaited AirPower charger, which has similar functionality (though it should be able to charge three devices at once).
At the event, Samsung is rumored to launch two other devices: The Galaxy Note 9 and a new Galaxy Watch, which should make the dual charger their perfect companion — hopefully at a reasonable price.
