Galaxy S III to feature proprietary wireless charging technology?

Galaxy S III to feature proprietary wireless charging technology?

Yet another rumor has surfaced in the lead-up to the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone.  This time around we’re dealing with the charging technology for the handsets.  Korea’s DDaily is reporting (translate) that the new flagship device will feature wireless inductive charging directly out of the box, much like Palm smartphones did a few years back.  What’s more, it’s said that the handset will be able to juice up even when it’s not physically touching the charging surface.  Expected to be some form of patented/proprietary technology, the Galaxy S III may charge even up to 1-2 meters away.

Like this, only better.

Should this pan out to be a legitimate rumor, Samsung would have a wonderful selling feature for what is expected to be a robust device.  Imagine how easy it would be to “sell” someone on a phone that charges whenever it’s within a few feet of the office desk or nightstand.
