With the launch of its next flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone coming up, Samsung has been building interest by releasing teasers that strategically hint at the specs we can expect from the new phone. The company already promised an amazing new camera on the device, and now in a new blog post, Samsung says that the new Galaxy smartphones will come with wireless charging.

In a blog post on Tuesday, Seho Park, one of Qualcomm’s principal engineers, predicted “2015 will be a landmark year for the growth of wireless charging deployment.” He added, “With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before.”

This suggests that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 may come with wireless charging technology. The electronics giant has been investing in wireless charging technology since late 2000. It acquired a small New Zealand startup, PowerByProxi, which has licensed key wireless charging technology from Auckland University. Samsung already sells battery backpacks, for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung has already sent out press invites for its Samsung Unpacked event, on March 1, two days before the Mobile World Congress 2015 begins. The company usually launches its flagship smartphones at the Samsung Unpacked event held before the MWC every year. This year Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 along with an Edge variant which is rumored to have two edge screens.

Reportedly, the S6 will have a radical new design, incorporating metal and new design philosophies. According to rumors, the S6 will have a 5.5-inch QHD display, an octa-core processor, 32GB of inbuilt storage and a 20 MP rear camera. The smartphone will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
