phones with wireless charging

Phones with wireless charging are cool. They save you the hassle of dealing with pesky cables — just drop your phone on a pad and watch everything light up. However, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind. Wireless charging usually takes longer than using a cable and makes phones difficult to use while charging.

Wireless charging is mainly available on high-end phones with glass backs — metal and wireless charging don’t mix. Not every flagship has the technology, but more and more manufacturers are hopping on the bandwagon. Phones with the feature either support the PMA or Qi standard, although Qi is the more popular choice. So, without further ado here are the best phones with wireless charging capabilities.

Best phones with wireless charging:

Editor’s note: We will update this list regularly as new devices with wireless charging launch.


1. Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro - Best phones with wireless charging capabilities

The P30 Pro is quite impressive with its incredibly versatile camera setup, featuring four sensors on the back. It does wonders in low-light scenarios and gives you plenty of options thanks to its wide-angle and 5x telephoto lenses.

The P30 Pro supports wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging.

The phone looks gorgeous, sporting a much smaller notch than its predecessor and thinner bezels all around. It comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner, 15W fast wireless charging, and even reverse wireless charging.

The phone is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset and sports a 6.47-inch display that’s curved on the sides. Other specs and features include IP68 water and dust resistance, up to 512GB of storage expandable via Huawei’s proprietary Nano Memory card, and a massive 4,200mAh battery. The phone is available in Europe and many other regions but was unfortunately not released in the US. However, it made it on the market before the Huawei ban debacle, so future software updates are not expected to be affected.


Huawei P30 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.47-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Kirin 980
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 128/512GB
  • Cameras: 40, 20, and 8MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,200mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


2. Samsung Galaxy S10 series

Samsung Galaxy S10 front - Best phones with wireless charging

All three Galaxy S10 phones — the Galaxy S10 Plus, S10, and S10e — support 15W wireless charging. What’s more, they all feature what Samsung calls Wireless PowerShare, allowing them to double as a charger for other wireless charging devices.

Editor's Pick

The Plus model offers the most of the three Galaxy S10 phones, sporting the largest display and battery as well as two front-facing cameras. It also comes with three rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and an IP68 rating, all of which are available on the regular S10 as well.

Those looking for a budget Samsung flagship should go with the Galaxy S10e, which sports the smallest display and comes with two rear cameras instead of three. It doesn’t have a curved screen or an in-display fingerprint scanner either, but it does have the same chipset, plenty of RAM, and is resistant to water and dust. All three models support expandable storage and come with a headphone jack on board. They are among the best phones with wireless charging you can get.


Samsung Galaxy S10e specs:

  • Display: 5.8-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: SD 855 or Exynos 9820
  • RAM: 6/8GB

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 10/Note 10 Plus

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Aura Glow back head on

Although the new Galaxy Note line wasn’t met with the same enthusiasm as the Note 9, the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are still some of the best phones on the market. They not only sport 15W wireless charging, but reverse wireless charging as well, which is ideal for keeping the battery of wireless headphones and smartwatches full on the go. But this is far from the only thing that makes the latest Samsung high-end devices special.

Editor's Pick

The Galaxy Note 10 has great specs with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, while the Plus model is even better with 12GB of RAM and 256 or 512GB of storage. Both devices sport the latest Exynos or Snapdragon processor depending on your region. The S Pen has also received significant upgrades, as has the look of the Galaxy Note.

You can now find the handsets in four gorgeous gradient colors — Aura Glow, Aura White, Aura Black, and Aura Blue. The large displays and massive 3,500 or 4,300mAh batteries are also a boon. You can’t go wrong with the Galaxy Note 10 line.


Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: SD 855 or Exynos 9825
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 12, 12 and 16MP

  • Battery: 3,500 mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


4. Google Pixel 4/4 XL

Google Pixel 4 vs Pixel 4 XL with wireless charging

No best list of Android devices is complete without Google’s flagship pair. Although this year’s models were met with more criticism than usual, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are still among the best Android phones you can buy. They reign supreme in the camera department with the amazing new astrophotography mode, but they also sport great specs along with Qi wireless charging.

Unlike their predecessors, both the Pixel 4 and 4 XL now have dual rear cameras with a telephoto and a wide sensor. The notch has also disappeared in favor of a top bezel, which houses a single selfie camera and a number of facial recognition sensors. The specs have received much needed upgrades too. Both phones now have 90Hz displays, 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 855 on board.

Unfortunately, the battery life on the smaller Pixel 4 is far from impressive. If you don’t want to reach for the wireless charger constantly, the Pixel 4 XL is undoubtedly the better choice.


Google Pixel 4 specs:

  • Display: 5.7-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 12.2 and 16MP
  • Front cameras: 8MP + TOF 3D
  • Battery: 2,800mAh
  • Software: Android 10


Google Pixel 4 XL specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 12.2 and 16MP
  • Front cameras: 8MP + TOF 3D
  • Battery: 3,700mAh
  • Software: Android 10


5. Xiaomi Mi 9

Xiaomi Mi 9 screen

Next on our list is the Xiaomi Mi 9. It features the Snapdragon 855 chipset, three rear cameras, and an in-display fingerprint sensor, all for an affordable price.

The global version of the handset comes with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage, while users in China also get variants with 8 or 12GB of RAM and as much as 256GB of storage. The phone supports fast wireless charging (20W) and can go from 0 to 100 percent in just one hour and 40 minutes if you get the special Charge Turbo wireless pad. It also supports 27W wired charging that will fully charge the battery in around 65 minutes.

The low price tag means Xiaomi had to cut some corners, however. There’s no IP rating, which is more or less standard on flagships these days. There’s no expandable storage or a headphone jack either. But overall, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is still a fantastic phone. Its successor, the Mi 9 Pro 5G is also quite promising, offering better specs and the fastest wireless charging on the market at 30W. However, there is no global launch date for it yet.


Xiaomi Mi 9 specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6/8GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 48, 12, and 16MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 3,300mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


6. LG G8X ThinQ

LG G8X ThinQ Review with wireless charging capabilities

LG did not jump on the foldable phone bandwagon, instead giving us the dual screen LG G8X ThinQ. More affordable and not prone to display malfunctions, this phone is basically a LG G8 ThinQ with an extra screen. There have been minimal changes to the spec sheet. The LG G8X sports 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and the same Snapdragon 855 chipset as its predecessor.

Editor's Pick

The battery has been upgraded to 4000mAh, but wireless charging speed remains the same at 9W. Unfortunately, extensive use of the second screen takes a toll on the battery.

The LG G8X still has a lot to offer though. It’s among the few audiophile phones left on the market, with stereo speakers and support for 32-bit HiFi Quad DAC. The phone also has a more than decent dual rear camera with standard and super wide lenses. So, if you want the foldable experience at a lower price, you can’t go wrong with the LG G8X.


LG G8X ThinQ specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 12 and 16MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


7. Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia 9 PureView Review

It’s not easy to find a flagship Android One device, but the Nokia 9 PureView might be the exception you’ve been looking for. HMD Global’s high-end smartphone not only offers a clean stock Android experience, but premium specs and 10W wireless charging as well.

More is better is the motto of the Nokia 9 PureView.

The Nokia 9 PureView sports 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a Snapdragon 845 processor. What really makes it stand out, however, are its cameras. It is currently the reigning champion for the highest number of rear sensors — five to be exact. Developed in partnership with Zeiss and Light, the camera configuration consists of two sensors that capture full color, while the remaining three monochrome sensors aid with depth, contrast, and exposure.

Unfortunately, the results are not instantly stunning, but if you love using Pro mode and tweaking the camera settings, the Nokia 9 PureView is a great choice.


Nokia 9 PureView specs:

  • Display: 5.99-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 5x 12MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 3,320mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


8. ZTE Axon 10 Pro

ZTE Axon 10 Pro display

If you’re looking for a great flagship that’s under $600, the Axon 10 Pro is worthy of your attention. It features a 6.47-inch AMOLED display with tiny bezels in the front, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of expandable onboard storage.

It also has two rear cameras. Those include a huge 48MP primary sensor, a 20MP secondary camera, and a 20MP front-facing sensor. It also has a large 4,000mAh battery, with support for both Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+ fast wired charging as well as Qi wireless charging.
