Apart from the new charging technology, Samsung’s Eco Remote can use indoor or outdoor lamp to charge itself, or the users can charge it via USB-C connection.

In addition, Samsung also introduced a white model of the Eco Remote this year. The company said it would better match the aesthetics of its lifestyle TVs, such as wrote, Frame, and the Sero series.
