Qualcomm revealed this week that it will start building AirFuel wireless charging technology into its Snapdragon series of SoCs (system-on-chips). The support will include all of the logic and primary circuitry to support both inductive and resonant wireless charging technologies. The Snapdragon 835 — announced this week — will be the first chip with AirFuel. In addition, all new 600-series chips announced in 2017 and beyond will include the technology. Manufacturers will still need to include a charging coil and some minor passive components in order for a phone to support wireless charging, but this step will make it much easier and more affordable for phone makers to include wireless charging.
