Question Samsung S20 fit in wireless charging 'bay'

My S9, with a case, fits in my 540xDrive wireless charging bay with about 1/4 inch to spare. But the S20 is a tad longer.
Anyone using that phone and using wireless charging in a G30?

No wireless charging on-board

Looks like you're going to have to charge with a USB or consider adding a wireless charging pad that is connected to 12VDC outlet or an available USB port.
