More evidence that Note 9 could come with a huge battery pops up

As if we needed even more indirect evidence that something big is brewing in Samsung's Note line battery department (and we don't mean self-combusting), a leak out of the FCC outed one yet-to-be-released wireless charger from Samsung with a raw output to match the eventual 4000mAh battery of the Galaxy Note 9

The charger, codenamed EP-N6100, pulsates with the whopping 2.1A at 12V, compared to 1.67A at 9V for the current Fast Charge Stand (2018) that Samsung debuted together with the Galaxy S9 and S9+, and carries the model number EP-N5100. Needless to say, this would mean faster charging speeds for an eventual Note 9 or whatever Samsung introduces next on the high-end. 

Alternatively, Samsung might just be taking advantage of the newly-widened FCC regulations for wireless charging. About a month ago, the FCC raised the 5W coil restriction to the whopping 15W, and the radio frequency exposure distance has also been increased drastically. Those new boundaries are now reflected in the FCC documentation for Samsung's upcoming EP-N6100 charger, so brace yourselves for some mighty fast wireless charging later this year.

About time a real flagship comes with a huge battery. I hope this becomes commonplace.

25W wireless charger? Thats faster than all (cable) charger right now (even faster than 20W VOOC and dash charge).. Looks like they found a way to cool down the battery during charging and push the limit..

Just for the record, it's high output for sure, especially wireless. Though my essential comes with a 27 watt wired charger and I haven't saw anything higher output from phone OEM yet.

I saw an article here, or AC where they used different wireless chargers for a galaxy 8 (maybe even the 9) and there was zero difference in wattage vs. charge time. Hopefully the changes needed are internal, and they arn't just upping wattage for no reason

Jokingly, I wonder if it just heats up faster with higher wattage using wireless. I only joke as my wired charger can full charge my phone in a hour+. Though my older phones and tablets that wirelessly charged would gain about 30% unless switched off altogether in that same hour. Wireless is not for me, not saying others can't rock it, just impractical in my usage.
