The coolest thing about major smartphone announcements and launches is that there is always something ground-breaking coming out. Huawei is giving the competition a run for their money at the moment. This was after the Chinese brand announced the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The latter has become an object of desire in the tech community for its next generation set of features. It is the first phone to include wireless reverse charging, making other devices look a bit pathetic.
Wireless reverse charging is a feature that makes it possible to use one device to charge another one that support wireless charging. This means that you can use the Huawei Mate 20 Pro to charge other devices that support wireless charging such as the iPhone X.
How wireless reverse charging works
Wireless reverse charging draws some of the power in one device and transfers it to the other. Literally, it turns a device into a charging pad for the other device.
Huawei has been a major player in propagating reverse charging technology. Devices like Ascend Mate 2 4G, Media Pad M1 and X1 all supported wired reverse charging over four years ago. However, the Mate 20 Pro is the first mainstream smartphone to support wireless reverse charging.
Manufacturers are beginning to put big, fat cells inside other gadgets we use. Maybe it’s about time to give a boost to some of our weakly equipped gadgets wirelessly with reverse wireless charging
Reverse wireless charging, and big batteries will greatly reduce trips to the power socket and carrying around charging pods. Consequently, you will be able to charge a device that supports wireless charging by simply stuffing it back to back with your reverse wireless charging device in the pocket.
As we saw with the notched screens, we expect more devices to come with reverse wireless charging feature in 2019 going forward. We shall live to remember the device that started it all, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
