New Galaxy S9 phone, new accessories?

A brand-new fast wireless charger may join the ranks of goodies you'll be able to buy to work with the upcoming handset.

An online manual for a new wireless charger (model number EP-N5100) appeared on the Samsung website. Since the model number doesn't match any Samsung chargers that are currently available, the suggestion that it'll be a new release to go with the Galaxy S9 is fairly plausible.

A wireless charger upgrade also fits Samsung's pattern of selling new designs with its premium models.

LG's next flagship phone may tout an extra-bright, low-power screen

  LG's next flagship phone may tout an extra-bright, low-power screen Just because LG is shying away from typical smartphone release cycles doesn't mean it will have nothing big to show in 2018.&nbsp;Well-known leaker Evan Blass has heard that LG is planning to unveil a new flagship phone, nicknamed Judy. The star attraction, as with the G6, would be the display -- though not for the usual reasons like size or resolution. Judy would have a 6.1-inch, 18:9 ratio screen whose MLCD+ technology (which includes white sub-pixels) promises a high 800-nit brightness while consuming 35 percent less power than a typical IPS LCD panel. You could use the phone outside on a sunny day without killing your battery as quickly as usual.

This suggests that the new wireless charger will be compatible with Samsung’ s earlier devices fitted with wireless charging coils, such as the Galaxy S 8 and Further, the charger is relatively smaller than Samsung’ s Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand, which currently retails for .99, notes

During the official unveiling, Samsung has been rumored to release a new wireless charger , but how is this going to be any different than the ones New Version Could Feature a New Design to Charge Multiple Devices – Could Also Charge the Galaxy S 9 a Lot Faster Than Regular Wireless Chargers .

Wireless charging is nothing new for Samsung's phones, but its competitors are finally catching on. The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X were the first iPhones to feature wireless charging, and they weren't released until the end of 2017. But as more phones get the ability to charge wirelessly, the companies that make the chargers have more incentive to innovate. Thus wireless charging technology is on the verge of doubling its speeds in the coming years.

A new rumor suggests the Samsung Galaxy S 8 will have a faster wireless charger than previous generation Samsung wireless chargers . This is great news for those us who prefer to charge our devices without plugging them in.

The charger has a maximum of 9 volts at 2 amps, which theoretically gives it 18 watts of power. It's worth noting that the Galaxy Note 8 wireless charging technology maxes out at a rate of 15 watts, while the new iPhones can only hit 7.5 watts. It's unknown if the Galaxy S9 will be able to wirelessly charge faster, or even take advantage of a wattage boost.

The Galaxy S9 will be unveiled at Samsung's Unpacked event Feb 25. Perhaps we'll hear more about the new charger around that time.

Samsung declined to comment on this story.
