The Samsung Galaxy S22 are expected at the start of 2022. According to new rumors, they will most likely correct one of the biggest shortcomings of the South Korean group’s high-end smartphones. Indeed, the FrontTron leaker claims on Twitter that fast charging in 65 W is in test phase at Samsung. A feature that the competition has been using and mastering for some time.

A delay to catch up for Samsung

Support for fast charging in 65 W would be a major step forward for Samsung. Because while we have seen charging capacities of 45W on the S20 Ultra and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, the actual charging time is not that different from using a 25W adapter.

In addition, the competition is already up to date: OnePlus, Oppo and Xiaomi all three offer charging powers of 65 W and more. We think for example of the OnePlus 8T, fully recharged in 39 minutes with the OnePlus Warp Charge 65 Power Adapter. Even Qualcomm had announced the Quick Charge 5, a fast charging standard of 125 W, more than a year ago.

They are not the only ones. Competitive devices like the OnePlus 9 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra offer charging speeds of 65W or more, allowing a full charge in under 40 minutes. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra reaches 100% of its capacity in a little over 70 minutes, via a 25 W load. Samsung therefore has everything to gain by working on this side.

Faster charging, however, tends to to degrade the health of the battery at a much higher rate than slower charging speeds. Which could be a problem for South Korean society, if it decides to take this route. The smart charging could nevertheless solve this problem, although this remains to be demonstrated.
