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.
