LG G2 wireless charging: Verizon’s coup, and the backup option
The LG G2 is on its way, bringing the first taste of Snapdragon 800 power to many smartphone users. Carriers are already gearing-up for the phone’s arrival, and just like we saw it do the other day with the HTC One, Verizon has a fresh landing page up for the G2. More than just offering users the opportunity to register for more info, this page also lets slip a special feature Verizon’s G2 will be getting, announcing exclusive wireless charging support.
Presumably, we’re talking about a fully-integrated system here, letting users wirelessly charge the phone without requiring any add-ons. We’re at a loss for details at the moment, but we’re probably looking at another Qi-compatible device.
If Verizon’s not your bag, you still might be able to wirelessly charge your G2, though not quite as gracefully. The OEM has confirmed that an eternal wireless charging shell is in the works, though hasn’t yet shared an ETA or any sort of pricing info. Less than idea, sure, but it’ll work in a pinch. So far, we’ve only heard about this option for the European market.
