Qualcomm and Alliance For Wireless Power (A4WP) consortium are making a wireless charging that based on Near Field Magnetic Resonance wireless charging standard that called Rezence. Than Qualcomm come up with something new, WiPower, that can charge through metal. This way to charge never been done by other standard until this news released. This’s a solution for device that adopt metal for their body, and expand Qualcomm range of selling at this field that no other competitor that support it.
Building a wireless charging solution into devices with metal exteriors is a significant step for moving the entire industry forward,”
“Today, more device manufacturers are choosing to utilize metal alloys in their product designs to provide greater structural support and, of course, aesthetics. QTI’s engineering advancement eliminates a major obstacle facing wireless power and opens up the continued adoption of this desirable feature to a much wider range of consumer electronics and use cases.
–Steve Pazol, General Manager of Wireless Charging, Qualcomm Incorporated.
In Qualcomm press release, Rezence has allowed devices to charge with metal objects in their magnetic charging field without affecting the charging process. Also, smartphones or tablets that are made of metal can also charge wirelessly now, themselves, that’s because WiPower. This improvement in the Rezence technology maintains WiPower’s existing ability to push up to 22W at speeds that are equal to or faster than competing wireless charging technologies.
Also Rezence could charge multiple device at once but in small range, not quite wide by linking power transmitter to device through bluetooth smart that (the area are bigger than Qi).
WiPower is already supported by the Snapdragon 810 chip, so further, we should start seeing Snapdragon 810-powered devices come out with WiPower wireless charging soon.
