Most reports for the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 flagship series have anticipated wireless charging support for the device. It now appears that Huawei is ready with a wireless charger as it has been listed for FCC certification in the U.S.

Huawei’s new wireless charger listed by FCC carries model number CP60. It is listed to come with a USB-C type input for power and the wireless charging pad itself outputs 15 Watts. Other than that the listing (via GSMArena) suggests that the wired adapter is rated for up to 40W of power – 4A at 10V, which is a major improvement in currently available 22.5W SuperCharge technology.

As of now, there is no clarity as to both Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will support wireless charging, but looking at the glass back design for the two devices, it can be certainly assumed.
