Samsung Galaxy S III is packing wireless charging

Not only will Samsung's new flagship charge wirelessly but it'll do it over a metre away

It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S III, which we're all itching to see, will come packing wireless charging abilities. And the really cool part is that you'll be able to charge the phone up to two metres from the source.

The news comes from an anonymous source reported in Korea's DDaily. It claims that this already existent, if not popular, wireless charging technology will come built into the mobile. Previously buying a separate bulky case and charging plate made the technology less than popular – this step by Samsung could do away with charging wires once and for all.

Although this would be great it's hard to see how Samsung can do it while keeping the bulk of the device to a minimum, so feel free to douse your mouse in salt now.
