Wireless charging could be headed straight for Intel-based ultra portable laptops and smartphones as early as next year. Digitimes is reporting that the Intel wants to add its wireless charging feature to the next-generation of Ultrabooks and smartphones.
Intel’s wireless charging works by using an ultrabook as the power source coupled with software and a transmitter to wirelessly charge your mobile phone.
Intel’s data says the feature will take advantage of low power consumption and the phone does not need to be put in a specific place or position.
The gigantic problem with this plan from Intel? Almost no smartphones use Intel chips. They all use ARM-based chips.
