Sony patents wireless phone-to-phone charging

A new Sony patent has turned up at the US Trademark and Patent Office, which shows that the company is exploring the possibility of wirelessly enabling power charging between mobile devices. So, this means that if you are running low on juice, you could turn to your friends’ phone for a top-up.

At this stage, this is only something on the drawing board, with no indication of when/if we will ever see this technology become a reality. First of all, we’d like to see Sony incorporate just normally wireless charging on its Xperia devices. That would be good enough for now!

Via What A Future!! [via Gizmodo].

Thanks Andrew and Moisés!

    So… Buy 2 phones and one of them will be your wireless charger?

  • Aldi Wan Kenobi

    Sony = Innovation

  • Boki Tadic (Legia)

    Sony is powerfull, i think they will Succeed.

  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    haha i wish….but it’s own software and algoritm code.
    It’s still concept, it could be prototype testing hardware.

  • Moisés

    According to the source it would use NFC to transfer the energy.
    Also Sony could built a power bank with NFC, so no more cable ever…

  • adibuyono

    You should buy 1 phone and 1 Powerbank

  • iia3ezu

    Solar charging. Some power banks already have it.

    first you got nougat 7.0 in xperia xa…

  • rus_media

    You didn’t get the sarcasm.

  • Khillo81

    No, you get another friend to buy a Sony phone as well, and then you mooch juice off him.

  • Battel

    At the end Xperia users will run after others brands users begging them for top-ups !
    Not clever idea :

  • NinJy

    Yield is close to nothing on external batteries in the best condition, so on a computing device….

  • KIMI

    It’s a gimmick that just doesn’t work, charging speed would be extremely slow furthermore youre exposing your phone to direct sunlight so internals would heat up pretty considerably = boom! goes 700$

    Unrelated to the article, I still wished they brought back the magnetic charging port.
    I dont really like the Qi wireless charging.

    I am against wireless charging with microwave radiation. It is inefficient charging for batteries and it is also harmful for human health. If Sony can find a safer & efficient alternative, then I will support it.

  • Борис Михаилов

    Nobody got the sarcasm. :(

  • marcyff2

    i don’t think its the case here. I think it is obtaining a property so no one else will have it. i don’t think we are there yet on wireless charging.

  • mountain

    And Sony still does not have qi in their phones

  • jmaxim917

    Which of Sony’s phones have wireless charging? Will the XZ Premium have wireless charging? Is this a situation of the cart before the horse?

  • vmxr

    Cool idea but they also need to add wireless charging into their phones
