Which Samsung phones support Qi wireless charging?
Samsung were among the first of the major smartphone manufacturers to incorporate Qi wireless charging into their devices, with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge being the first models to support the standard. Since the S6, numerous Galaxy models have supported wireless charging, with the sheer breadth of the Galaxy product range resulting in a long list of Qi-certified devices.
Samsung has also built proprietary technologies on top of the Qi standard which enable faster charging with their own-branded charger, but all Galaxy models with wireless charging are also Qi-certified for guaranteed compatibility with any Qi wireless charger.
