MWg plans wireless charging (when products arrive)

A base station will allow wireless charging for its smartphones, using electromagnetic induction.

While we're still waiting for MWg to release its first products, the Singapore company has made another announcement. This time, it isn't new smartphones, but a partnership with U.K.-based Splashpower to provide wireless charging for its future devices.

If and when this is implemented, MWg's phones will not need to be plugged in for power. Instead, a base station will allow wireless charging using electromagnetic induction. Such technology has been in the works for some time, but there's hardly any use of it in commercially available products.

Few details have been provided by MWg so far. The first products will supposedly be equipped with the technology in the middle of the year.
