LG is one of the most active companies at the year’s 2013 Mobile World Congress, having already shown several new smartphones and announcing it has acquired WebOS from HP. LG also announced Wireless Ultra HD Video Streaming Technology at MWC 2013.
LG also introduced the ‘world’s smallest’ wireless charging device, the WCP-300.
The WCP-300 is a little black pad, just 6.9cm in diameter. It’s compatible with a standard 5-pin micro-USB charger, and complies with the Qi standards of the Wireless Power Consortium.
As for the devices that support it, there are two available in the U.S. market: the LG Spectrum and the Nexus 4. The freshly showcased LG Optimus G Pro also supports this technology.
As you know all companies trying to push wireless charging tech to the market, LG hopes more and more upcoming smartphones will have built-in support for this new technology. LG itself plans to introduce smartphones with “more advanced” wireless charging technology in the global market.
The price of WCP-300 is around $60 and will be available in South Korea by first week.
