When Apple brought its MagSafe technology to last year’s iPhone 12, people welcomed the change with open arms. With MagSafe, the iPhone becomes a prop for several enhancements that support that technology, and there are already a good number of them. Since Apple has done something and it has become successful, it is also going to be copied. Realme has apparently filed a new trademark and it is called “MagDart”. And because the name is so similar to MagSafe, the rumor is that Realme is working on its own wireless technology.
According to Mukul Sharma, Realme has filed the MagDart trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Organisation (EUIPO). Although Realme has not mentioned what exactly MagDart is, Sharma believes it is going to be similar to Apple’s MagSafe “wireless charging tech”. Furthermore, a report from MySmartPrice states that Realme has also filed the MagDart trademark application at India’s CGPDTM (Controller General of Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks) website.
Now, for those unaware, Apple re-introduced its MagSafe charging system with the launch of the iPhone 12 series last year. This charging tech leverages magnets at the back of a device to allow users to attach various MagSafe-compatible accessories like the new Apple Battery Pack, wallets, charging car mounts, and more.
Now, the biggest purpose that MagSafe serves is that it charges the iPhone wirelessly with more precision than what Qi-powered chargers do. That is because MagSafe uses magnets for the perfect alignment. Realme may be working on a similar technology where its phones will use wireless charging but a lot better than Qi. Realme has not said anything, which is why you should take this rumour with a pinch of salt. And even if Realme is thinking about its own MagSafe technology, there is no clarity on when this MagDart entity will come out.
