huawei wants to make long-range wireless charging a reality

Short battery life consistently ranks as the top complaint of smartphone users. To increase it, smartphone manufacturers can produce devices with larger batteries, increasing their size and weight, improve the energy density of their batteries, or use different battery technology. Alternatively, they can make it easier for users to charge their devices, and that’s the path Huawei has decided to take by making long-range wireless charging a reality, according to an IT Home report.

The report revealed that the Chinese multinational technology company known for its telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics has filed a patent for a new technology that would make it possible to charge battery-powered devices wirelessly over a long distance.

Currently, wireless charging requires two coils to be placed directly opposite each other. This greatly restricts the potential applications of this otherwise wonderful technology, whose only other major drawback is its inefficiency.

According to the patent’s description, Huawei has been able to figure out how to increase the distance between the two coils by sending electricity through a variety of media, including iron, aluminum, copper, alloy materials, metal pipes, humans, animals, soil, earth, seawater, or just about any other material with conductivity greater than that of air.

“IT Home understands that the purpose of this Huawei patent is to increase the equivalent coupling capacitance between the transmitting electrode and the receiving electrode, which can effectively increase the transmission power between the transmitting device and the receiving device, thereby realizing long-distance wireless charging,” writes the technology portal.

This kind of long-range wireless charging technology could revolutionize the wearables market, but its potential applications extend much further. For example, it could be used to charge embedded medial devices, industrial sensors, and other small devices that can’t be easily connected to a regular charger.

Since the patented technology has yet to be put to practical use, we don’t know anything at all about its safety or potential downsides.

amazon has partnered with music streaming service anghami

Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers an excellent value proposition because it includes not only free shipping but also access to a huge library of songs, among other things. Unfortunately for music lovers in the MENA region, the Amazon Prime music library includes mostly songs from English-speaking countries. But that’s about to change soon because Amazon has partnered with Anghami, the first legal music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world.

As a result of the new partnership, Prime subscribers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will automatically get a free six-month subscription to Anghami Plus, a premium subscription service that offers an unlimited access to Anghami’s large content catalog and unlocks extra features such as the ability to play songs offline, display lyrics, and enjoy music in high quality.

“This collaboration with Anghami is a perfect example of how we work together with leading local brands to innovate on members’ behalf, offering them the best experience possible,” said Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa. “We’re excited to see Prime members in both Saudi Arabia and the UAE enjoy Anghami Plus and all it has to offer, alongside other shopping, savings and entertainment benefits already included in their membership”.

The partnership with Amazon is guaranteed to help Anghami realize its global ambitions and compete with other music streaming services, most notably Spotify and Deezer.

Several months ago, Anghami entered into a merger agreement with publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Vistas Media Acquisition Company Inc. The goal is to list Anghami on the New York NASDAQ exchange, giving it access to global growth capital.

Currently, Anghami provides its users access to more than 57 million Arabic and international songs, as well as podcasts and live radio. Amazon Prime subscribers who decide to keep using Anghami can get an additional 50% discount for the next six months.
