Samsung includes wireless charging on the Galaxy S6 that lets users place it on a charger without connecting a cable. This works with the two most popular wireless charging formats that you will see in cars and in some restaurants. Ikea is building new furniture with built-in wireless charging support as well.
This is a first for the Galaxy S series which only offered wireless charging with a replacement back that Samsung charged more than $50 for. Users still need to buy a charger, but it is still a big plus.
