It seems that a real, genuine iPhone killer has arrived.
Huawei, the Chinese telecommunication behemoth has just launched two smartphones in London, which is creating ripples all over the world right now.
Their Huawei Mate 20 Pro can magically charge other smartphones and this has been termed as ‘Wireless Reverse Charging’.
This is World’s first such smartphone which has this capability of wireless reverse charging, and this has set a new benchmark in the technological world.
Wireless Reverse Charging of Huawei Mate 20 Pro: How This Works?
This is based on the Qi charging standard, created by the Wireless Power Consortium.
This is indeed not a big deal – Around 140 smartphones, tablets from leading brands like Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus etc are part of this ‘Consortium’, and use Qi charging standard to wirelessly charge the devices.
However, the big deal is that, Huawei Mate 20 Pro can charge other smartphones as well.
Thus, this can charge other Mate 20 Pro smartphones, as well as other smartphones which support Qi charging standard such as iPhone XS.
Basically, it is electromagnetic induction, as taught in your Physics class in school: Electromotive force is produced, across an electrical conductor in a changing magnetic field.
Now, Huawei has implemented the same theory to their Mate 20 Pro, and in real life, the charging mat becomes the transmitter, and the setup on your phone becomes the receiver.
The magic here is, somehow Huawei has been able to make the Mate 20 Pro both a transmitter and receiver – Using various miniaturizations, it can receive the electromagnetic energy from the charging mat, and also becomes the ‘charging mat’ by transmitting energy back to the other smartphones, hence, charging it wirelessly.
To be frank, Huawei hasn’t revealed how this reverse charging actually works, but we are expecting some interesting reveals in the coming days.
Initial Reactions On Reverse Charging Feature
Few tech journalists were able to use the reverse charging mechanism of Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and experienced the feature first hand.
Although they were impressed with the mechanism, and the technological breakthrough, but the speed of charging was something which bothered them.
Maybe it is too early to say whether this new reverse charging mechanism will work with the critics or not and whether it can become an iPhone killer or not, but one thing is for sure – Huawei has created a new disruption here.
