Samsung Galaxy S8 wireless charging problem
The problem seems to happen with various wireless chargers, even Qi wireless chargers coming from Samsung themselves. Their new wireless charger made specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S8 does seem to work without a hitch.
Some users are saying that it’s simply a problem with the position of the smartphone not aligning properly to the wireless charging pad. This could be a probable cause since the new Galaxy smartphones have different dimensions compared to the previous flagships. Despite this, wireless charging should still work somehow.
It hasn’t been reported yet if this is another manufacturing defect or a problem with the wireless chargers. Samsung also hasn’t commented regarding the problem the users have been having.
