Almost a week ago it was reported that Samsung is planning on introducing two new fast charging wireless chargers for its flagship set of smartphones. The leak also came with set of render images that gave us a good idea of what they could look like. One of the two chargers was stated to be the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo (EP-P6100), which comes with two charging pads meant to charge two smartphones or a smartwatch simultaneously. Now a new report showcases the charger’s design and its retail box along with its pricing.
According to MobilTelefon.ru, the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo has already gone on sale in Russia for a price of RUB 6,990 (approximately Rs 7,700). Its retail box is said to come with Wireless Charger Duo station, a fast Charge wall adapter, a cable and a quick charging guide. Images posted by the website look similar to the previous renders of the charging pad, which features one standing station and one flat.
Interestingly, the back of the box showcases a smartwatch icon, underneath which it mentions Galaxy Watch. This could possibly be hinting towards the Samsung Gear S4 that Samsung is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 at its Unpacked event in New York. Previous rumors have suggested that Samsung is ditching the Gear S4 name to call its next-generation smartwatch Galaxy Watch. That said, it can be confirmed that it will be compatible with new Wireless Charger Duo.
The fact that the wireless charging pad is already selling in Russia, comes as a surprise as Samsung hasn’t officially launched it. The device was also expected to be unveiled at the Unpacked event on August 9. Not just that, reports have also suggested Samsung to launch a more affordable wireless fast charging station at the event, which will only carry a single charging pad. That device is dubbed as the EP-P3100.
Watch: Samsung Galaxy S9+ Review
It’s still unclear when Samsung plans to officially announce the new-generation of wireless chargers. But given the that fact that it’s announcing the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy Watch on August 9, leads us to believe that it could be then. In addition to that, Samsung could also unveil its Galaxy Tab S4 premium tablet.
