LG V10 wireless charging still possible with special Qi cover

LG’s new V10 doesn’t include wireless charging out of the box, but it looks like the company is still set to offer the feature for its latest flagship phone. Unfortunately, you’ll probably have to pay extra to get it.

A filing with the Wireless Power Consortium reveals that LG is prepping a swappable back cover for the device with Qi charging support. The certification, which was spotted by ETNews, describes a low power receiver that would make it possible to power up the device without plugging in any wires. The company also confirmed the news directly, though there’s no word on when the accessory will actually be available.

The LG V10 may skimp on wireless charging, but it offers plenty of other high-end hardware to make up for it. That includes a small secondary screen above the main display for checking notifications and jumping between apps, along with a pair of 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. It also boasts a removable 3,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a durable design made from stainless steel and silicone.

The device is set to launch on Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile in the near future. There’s still no word on carrier pricing, though it costs about $680 off-contract in Korea.
