Samsung just unveiled a slew of new devices during its “Life Unstoppable” virtual event held today. Amongst the devices is Samsung’s new wireless charger dubbed “Trio” that can charge up to three different devices simultaneously. Although details are still scanty, Samsung Trio is expected to charge a number of devices such as smartwatch, phone and earphones at the same time – at least from the renders released by the tech giant.
Wireless charging tech has been evolving over the years, but the pace hasn’t been what we expected, and there are very few chargers that can support charging more than one device at the same time. we were recently thrilled when Xiaomi unveiled the Mi 20w smart tracking charging pad that could charge two different devices placed at random location. The device would then immediately locate where you’ve placed the gadgets and start charging them as soon as they’ve been correctly traced.
The latest wireless charger from Samsung offers an ample upgrade over Samsung Duo which managed to support two devices simultaneously. Trio supports the Qi wireless charging standard which basically means it can be used on a variety of devices that support the standard. Users with a few Qi devices might have a reason to smile once Trio becomes available.
Before today’s launch, Samsung had hinted on unveiling a new wireless charger and a dozen of leaks had already given us a proper Idea on what to expect. We’re yet to get hold of the complete spec sheet, but will make necessary efforts to update on features once available. From the renders, the pad is big enough to accommodate the latest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on one side, the Galaxy Watch 3 on the other side and the Galaxy Buds Live in the middle.
Price and availability in Kenya
We currently do not have a rough Idea when Samsung Trio will be available here in Kenya, but current European pricing suggest it should be around Ksh.10,000 – not exactly what an average Kenyan would be looking forward to.
