In the past few months, Samsung has been releasing some very impressive phones to the market. Of these, we have seen the amazing Galaxy S10 line-up and the new Galaxy A70 midrange that will challenge flagships from other brands.
What you might not have cared about in the spec sheet is a cool addition by Samsung – the 25W fast charging capability. Of course, this is only made available on the top tier variant of the Galaxy S10 (the 5G version).
If recent leaks are anything to go by, Samsung will go even higher for their upcoming Note 10 units. An insider leak has already mentioned that the South Korean OEM plans to do more than 25W for the Note 10, while Forbes weighed in on the matter too, saying they can go as high as 50W.
It is too early to believe anything, but that won’t be out of place. If you look at what the competition is doing, Samsung is merely catching up. Afterall, Xiaomi has a prototype that is said to supply 100Q fast charging. In layman terms, that means a 4000mAh battery can be totally juiced up in under 20 minutes.
For now, though, we understand why Samsung is playing it safe. After the unfortunate events of the Galaxy Note 7, they would not want to make any serious gambles on battery at this crucial time.
Furthermore, we cannot tell if this super-fast charging feature will come to all of the variants of the Note 10, or only the top option.
As of the time of this writing, your guess is as good as ours. If they will be slapping such a feature on, though, fanboys should be looking to shell out a premium to have a feel of this unit.
