Galaxy Note 10 fast charge speed could be higher than 25W

There’s only one model of the Galaxy S10 that features Samsung’s new ‘super fast charging’ and you won’t find it in most markets. The Galaxy S10 5G supports 25W fast charging compared to the 15W fast charging on the company’s recent devices. However, there’s one non-flagship with super fast charging and it’s the Galaxy A70.

So would you put your money on 25W fast charging for the Galaxy Note 10? We’ve already confirmed that it’s going to have a 5G model so the assumption would be that it also gets super fast charging. If you believe recent reports, the Galaxy Note 10 fast charge speed could be even higher than 25W.

Galaxy Note 10 fast charge speed may hit 50W

We have already discussed just how quick is Samsung’s 25W super fast charging in detail. There were some noticeable advantages of super fast charging on the Galaxy A70 that we ran our tests on. If there’s going to be another Samsung device this year to get support for super fast charging, you can bet it will be the Galaxy Note 10.

Noted tech leakster Ice Universe predicts that the Galaxy Note 10 fast charge speed could be more than 25W. No specific figure has been provided, though, but he mentions that the battery capacity and charging speed won’t be a weak point for the device. Gordon Kelly over at Forbes hears something similar from a trusted source. He was told that the figure will likely be higher and not lower than 25W. Fans can expect to be “pleasantly surprised and not disappointed” when the charging specs are made public.

There is some speculation about the Galaxy Note 10 having support for 50W super fast charging. That might sound like hogwash to some people but it won’t exactly be new territory for the market. Oppo’s SuperVOOC charging technology already delivers a maximum charging power that’s close to 50W. It claims that this can fully charge a smartphone in 35 minutes (in controlled lab conditions).

Expect to hear more about the Galaxy Note 10’s battery capacity and charging speed in the coming weeks. These upgrades may prove to be crucial in getting more people to purchase Samsung’s upcoming flagship.

“hears something similar from a trusted source.”

What about your exclusive sources ?

From Ice universe

“no longer be Samsung’s weaknesses, or even advantages.”

What this mean ? It should be advantage.

I don’t think higher than 25 watt charging would sway me either way. I will get the Note10 anyway. It is not necessary and it’s very bad for long term battery health. Even if it is higher, I charge it in the evening anyway and will keep to standard 15w charging. I only keep my phone one year anyway, but when I sell it before upgrading I like to give the next user a healthy battery that’s going to last a couple of years for them.

Well, it is kinda odd they didn’t do this before. Now they have big batteries on their flagships so it’s not as necessary to have faster charging as it was before since they last longer now. Kind of a chicken and egg thing I guess, although I still want faster charging for the first half an hour because I don’t get anywhere near the crazy screen times in India as you guys. 😛 And anyway, I think even the faster ones switch to regular charging speeds as the charge climbs higher, so it’s not really that much of an effect… Read more »

That’s true Abhijeet to some extent as battery tech is improving but not by much. In my early career days I was involved in lithium battery manufacturing for Motorola phones, and we did quality studies on charging speeds. Even that 30 minutes super charge does have some affect. I would always say to people particularly those who keep their expensive device for a number of years to use standard charging as much as possible. I’m just a nice guy who wants to give a good battery to the next owner! 😇😆

Yeah, can’t say anything on that front as someone who works with phones and isn’t holding on to phones for more than a year or so. Also, does not fast charging it also result in slightly longer battery life compared to what we get with fast charging? I used to feel that’s the case when I had disabled fast charging 2-3 years back, but don’t disable it anymore.

Slower charging can get “denser charge” in the cells = longer battery life, true. Also worth noting that all phones show 100% a lot earlier before the battery is really full, it keeps charging around 40-90m after the phone is stating 100% (slowly, but when you really top it out, it makes a difference comparable to few percents more).

The last 20% will always be slower to charge as the charging method is different. Still, the effect of the fast charge is not that small at all if one uses it every day for years. When such effects are analysed one does not look at the battery health after 50 cycles, you should look at 300-500 cycles. Fun fact, normal quality li-ion battery will reach 80% of initial capacity after around 1000 cycles. Smartphones ones does that in like 350-400 cycles. Now go tell me how the charging methods are totally fine and does not affect the battery degradation.… Read more »

As long as they keep using Lithium ion batteries, they’re gonna have the same problems. Smartphones have been around for over 10 years now, and I’ve had a smartphone since the S4, battery life has barely improved – I still can’t get through a full day, after 6 months of use. Starts out phenomenal enough. But it degrades so quickly. So, samsung might as well got for the faster charging because it makes no difference in the long run.

If you can’t get through a day after only 6 months you should talk to customer service. You obviously have a bad battery. After having every Note ever made I’ve never had a battery problem. Never even had to swap the replaceable ones…..in those days when we could do that! lol. Even though the battery is not normally covered a failing battery after just 6 months will be investigated.

And to answer you on that one, my Note 4, bought on the same day as the headphones I mentioned above, had in 2.5 years before it finally died a Samsung death (updated to sluggish slowlessness), 5 batteries, original ones from Samsung – that is one every 6.5 months – swapped due to cell death and/or degradation (even swollen batteries had two of them, and you have to fight Samsung for it, as warranty covered only 6 months).

use to have a note 9.
now s10 plus 11 SOT.

A good point though not the case. Faster charging stresses a battery. It will be ok for at least a year but then will suffer.

It does make a huge difference on both, charging and discharging. So basically, the batteries today are killed two fold, charging and discharging. The problem with phones is: they charge too fast, they draw to much current under heavy load (and since OS is not really optimised, even the most menial tasks mean heavy load for your phone) and then additionally they generate a lot of heat near to the lithium cell itself, which also makes the battery to not be very happy about it. To that add the expansion / shrinking under temperature changes of a plastic bag filled… Read more »

we need a solar powered battery soon.
thats innovation.

Why someone at Sammobile doesnt remove galaxy s9 and note9 from shortcuts, and put note 10 instead, leaving s10 and fold? Its about time you collect all rumors and news of note 10 in one section

25W still slower than the competition so they better hurry up

but faster that 3 s10s. all but the S 10 5g.
note will be 3 times faster than the 10s and double the s10 5g.
