The ConceptToday technology is advancing with the practice of leaving the hazard of wires behind. Though not yet rampantly, but the concept of Wireless Charging has entered the industry of smartphones quite well. To get a quick glimpse of how it works, here's a brief description.
Wireless charging which is technically known as Inductive charging is based on the methodology using an electromagnetic field for transferring energy between two different objects through the process of electromagnetic induction. This is a process that is done through a charging station where the energy passes through an inductive coupling device to an electrical device, and there the energy can be used henceforth to charge batteries or run a device.
But for Wireless Charging the phone needs to support Qi wireless charging or else one will have to insert a Qi charging receiver.
