What phones have wireless charging?

Wireless charging can be a super-convenient way to keep your phone ticking along, but you need to ensure that you have either a compatible handset or one that can take a wireless charging case.

Wirelss charging uses inductive charging to deliver power to a receptive coil built either into the back of a handset or into some cases if the phone dosen’t support wireless charging natively.

If your phone is one model in above lists, then you could just choose the wireless charger of your prefered style, meet with Qi standard or PMA, then you can enjoy the benefits brought by wireless charger.

What is Qi?

Qi (pronounced “chee”)wireless charging is a global standard used by many smartphones and administered by the wireless power consortium, It’s the Qi standard that Apple’s iPhone use, but they’are hardly alone in this, with numerous other smartphone brands, such as Samsung’s popular Galaxy phones, including Qi compatbility.

Qi charging stations are appearing more and more around the world as it becomes more common, inclding many hotels and airports worldwide, especially in light of the adoption of Qi charging by Apple.

What is PMA?

PMA is the other major standard in the wireless charging scene, albeit one that’s been slightly eclipsed by the Qi standard. Like Qi, PMA uses inductive charging via a pad that you drop a PMA-compliant phone onto.

Most notably, Samsung has opted to support both PMA and Qi charging in its recent premium flagship handsets, which means those devices should work with either charging pad type.

The smartphones that are listed above will not need any kind of case to charge wirelessly as they support Qi integration. All that you will need is a wireless charging pad.

If you’re using a handset that lacks wireless charging capabilities and you’re keen, all is not lost. For a number of popular handsets, especially iPhones, manufacturers have Qi-compatible charging cases. Like below model,
