We are a little more than a month away from the official release of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8. We know just about everything there is to know about this phone, and now we have some intel on a few of the accessories that will release alongside the S8. First up is the all new "Faster Wireless Charger" leaked out by "Roland Quandt" of WinFuture. He has obtained the official model number of the new device (EP-PG950) along with some other details.

The new Qi Charger is supposedly faster than the current fast wireless charger. The charger will feature a Qi base. This base will apparently be capable of charging the S8 and S8+ at 15W with a 9V/1.67A wireless charge and a 10W 5V/2A standard charge. The main difference here is that the charging base will be powered by a USB Type-C cable rather than a micro USB cable.

Roland also had some information regarding the new and improved Gear VR. This will be essentially the same product as what we have seen in the past. Of course it will be designed to fit the S8 and S8+. The updated Gear VR will be model number SM-R324 and will feature a new front cover to hold the Galaxy S8. There will also be a single hand controller that should make VR gaming and simply scrolling around much easier and user friendly.

We have not heard anything so far about cases or battery packs, but you can rest assured that we will see those alongside the release of the devices as well. Samsung fans go nuts over these Samsung official accessories.

Maybe they will discount the S7 Fast wireless charger.
