One of the best Galaxy Note 10+ features will soon be supported by a mid-range Samsung phone

One of the best Galaxy Note 10+ features will soon be supported by a mid-range Samsung phone
There are quite a few reasons why the "regular" Galaxy Note 10 doesn't exactly justify its existence and why you should probably try to get the plus-sized model (if you can afford it), but as it turns out, one of the exclusive Note 10+ features helping it stand out from its little brother may not stay that way for very long. 

We're talking about the so-called "Super Fast Charging" support, which will apparently expand in the not-so-distant future to the... Galaxy A91. If you were somehow expecting Samsung to miraculously add 45W speeds to the 6.3-inch Note 10 post-launch, we're sorry to inform you that's unlikely to happen. But while the Note 10, Note 10 5G, S10 5G, A90 5G, A80, A70, and the Book S laptop are pretty much guaranteed to stick to 25W Fast Charging capabilities, Samsung Hungary suggests the A91 will join the Note 10+ and Note 10+ 5G in supporting insane 45W rates.

Of course, "suggestion" is a bit of an understatement here, as the company's regional 45W travel adapter webpage outright lists the unreleased A91 as compatible with said charger. Confusingly enough, the $49.99 USB-C Super Fast Charging brick is linked on Samsung's official US website with listings for both the Note 10 and Note 10+. 

That's probably a mistake, but we're fairly certain a mid-range Galaxy A91 with compatibility for blazing fast 45W charging is indeed in the pipeline. After all, recent gossip already painted this non-flagship beast an impressive picture in terms of imaging capabilities, with a quad camera setup purportedly comprised of a 108, yes, 108MP primary sensor, a 16MP wide angle lens, a 12MP telephoto shooter equipped with 5x optical zoom functionality, and a trendy Time-of-Flight camera.

Unfortunately, the rest of the specs and features are kept under wraps for the time being, but even though the A91 is expected to be a part of Samsung's 2020 Galaxy A lineup, an official announcement by the end of the year is very much on the cards. A 5G-enabled Galaxy A90 is also likely to see daylight this fall, but interestingly, its charging capabilities are expected to be limited to 25 watts, possibly to save costs and not come too close to the Note 10 as far as retail pricing is concerned. The same can probably be said for why the A91 is unlikely to include 5G support.

Considering that the 25-watt charger gets the Note 10+ from 0-100 in about 65 minutes and the 45-watt is said to do it in about 56, I really don't think it's worth the $50. That being said though, I hope they include it in the box next year.

I'm pretty sure the official Samsung 45Watt charger would do It faster than 56 minutes , I could be wrong though. but Samsung would be trolling themselves if they expect people to spend $50 on what they already own

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/19/cnn-underscored/samsung-45-watt-charger-note-10-review/index.html Well you're wrong. It's actually slightly longer. I also read a second source with similar results.

Unfortunately the A91 will definitely not have a midrange price.

I ordered this charger because I had $250 to spend in Samsung Store Credit when I pre-ordered the phone. Normally I don't think I would buy it, but I'm curious to see how different it is. The Note 10+ is my personal phone so I can let it die, then charge 0-100 with both the old and new charger to compare. I plan on leaving the fast charger at my office in case I ever need to top up. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

Hello ECPirate37, I am also a lover of smartphones but unfortunately have not been able to afford one for myself. I wish to ask that if you are no longer in need of your Note 9, that you graciously hand it down to me. I want to be part of the experience too. Thanks. (tbh I just made a wild guess that you'd have one since you just upgraded)

Not a big deal, 5 out of 1 mid-range phone has now a similar feature. And galaxy phones are well popular for ditch some features.
