Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may support 50W super fast charging

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may support 50W super fast charging
Samsung recently released two phones that support 25W fast charging, but you may have missed that, because they are not available worldwide. Those are the 5G version of the Galaxy S10, and the Galaxy A70. More Samsung phones may get super fast charging in the future, starting with this year's Galaxy Note 10.

We've already heard rumors that the Galaxy Note 10 is likely to great battery life, and it seems like Samsung is also planning to introduce 25W fast charging alongside the increased battery capacity. It's too early to tell whether the base Note 10 will get super fast charging, or whether it will be reserved for the "Pro" version only, but prolific leaker Ice Universe claims that the charge speed may actually exceed 25W. According to Forbes, we may be talking about 50W, which is the current bar set by the competition.

OnePlus's DASH Charge works at 30W, while Oppo's SuperVOOC charge can hit around 50W, and both have been tested with great results. Similarly, Xiaomi has an insane 100W prototype charging solution that's said to be able to fully juice up a 4000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. Over the last three years, Samsung has understandably been a bit more careful in regards to battery capacity and charging speeds, as the memory of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 still lingers in the public mind.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro are likely to launch in mid-August, and if recent rumors are to be believed, they won't disappoint. The more expensive Pro variant is said to feature the same hexa-camera setup as the Galaxy 10 5G. That includes four cameras on the back (12MP primary with OIS + 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom + 16MP ultra-wide angle+ depth sensor) and two selfie snappers in front. The base Galaxy Note 10 will reportedly have a penta-camera setup that includes everything on the Note 10 Pro, except for the depth sensor. The U.S. version of all Note 10 units will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, equipped with at least 8GB of memory.

"Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may support 50W super fast charging..." And will require a new battery after every 6 months! The thing is; most fast charging technologies rely on high voltages, which is a bad news for old lithium-ion batteries. And given Samsung's fast charging history; it's safe to say that this 50W charging solution will rely on 10V, 5A current to charge the battery at 50W of power. And I, for one, would never expose my ultra-expensive piece of modern tech to such extreme voltages! Not on my watch! For me, 4-5 volts are the absolute limit, anything beyond is just an overkill. There's a reason Oppo/OnePlus's 'Warp Charge' relies on 5V, 6A current to attain 30W of power. Oh well, G'Day!

Well you can turn off the fast charging on samsung phones (my s8 can after one ui update) so probably you can just use the normal charging speed to keep battery performance

Fast charging doesn't change battery performance. he's just stupid bruh. Just ignore him. Also any phone that has fast charging can have the feature turn off. Even if you take a fast charger and use it with a phone that doesn't use such, nothign will happen because the electronics and software on the phone, will still only allow it to charge at the rate it was designed. He lacks any intellect on the subject and has been repeating this lie for years. If what he said was true, all phone with fast charging would all be dead right now.

You don't know anything about fast charging do you? I've posted so many times that Qualcomm stated that fast charging batteries, THAT ARE DESIGNED TO BE FAST CHARGED, doesn't degrade them. Please wake up bruh. If you claim was true, then why have NONE of Samsung phones or any OTHER OEM who offers fast charging have had any battery issues whatsoever? Based on what you said, every phone since the S6 would already be not working. Please read what Qualcomm says and be educated.https://www.qualcomm.com/solutions/mobile-computing/features/quick-charge/faq Q: Can Quick Charge hurt my smartphone's battery? A: Quick Charge operates within the design parameters of batteries found in most smartphones. It is just charging the battery the way it is designed to be charged. Device manufacturers build smartphones with a specific battery that can accept a specific level of charge. The battery size and maximum current of each battery are design decisions made by the manufacturer and can vary from smartphone to smartphone, tablet to tablet and so on. However, traditional battery charging technology does not come close to the full power requirements of today's large batteries. Quick Charge is designed to allow device manufacturers to achieve the full rated capability of the batteries they choose while still meeting the performance and safety standards set by the battery manufacturer. Please grow up dude and stop spreading false lies. If what you said was true, then explain how Tesla cars can be super-charged?

As for 50W, 100W or WhateverW, the Battery Technology and Materials Need to Change in order to be Stable and Last Many Years with Hundreds of Thousands of Charges for the Life of the Battery.
