New rumor says Galaxy Note 10 Pro will have only 25W fast charging

The Galaxy Note 10 may not come with 45W fast charging, according to a tweet from XDA Developer’s Max Weinbach. A previous rumor excited everyone by suggesting that the Galaxy Note 10 will have fast charging speeds almost double of what the Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy A70, and Galaxy A80 offer, but the 45W fast charging tech may debut on the Galaxy A90 instead. And it’s certainly plausible — the Galaxy A70 was the first Galaxy phone with 25W fast charging to hit retail shelves, so the next jump in fast charging speeds in Samsung’s smartphone lineup may very well be introduced with a Galaxy A series phone.

It’s also worth mentioning that the new rumor specifically mentions the Galaxy Note 10 Pro, making us wonder if the fast charging speeds will be different on the regular Galaxy Note 10. Leaving the lower-end model on the old 15W fast charging tech wouldn’t be a major issue if it’s going to have just a 3,400 mAh battery, and it might also be one of the ways Samsung keeps the price of the device palatable. As for the Galaxy Note 10 5G, we’re assuming it might be the one with 45W fast charging, similar to how the Galaxy S10 5G can charge faster than the non-5G Galaxy S10 models.

With the Galaxy Note 10’s launch a few months away, we will probably see conflicting reports for a few more weeks before information from various leaks and rumors begins to converge. Frankly, it was always overly optimistic to expect the Galaxy Note 10 to offer charging speeds three times higher than the Galaxy S10, as that’s the kind of upgrade Samsung is unlikely to provide just six months after releasing the tenth-anniversary Galaxy S flagship.

Would the fast charging speed of the Galaxy Note 10 be a major factor influencing your decision to purchase the device when it comes out later this year? Or would you care more about features like the headphone jack, which may finally be on its way out from Samsung’s mainstream flagships?

I honestly can’t understand the whole “thousands” watt fast charging exaggeration. 90% of people charge their phone overnight WHEN THEY SLEEP. Fuerthermore it well established that fast charging dicreases the life span of the battery faster. I have fast charging for several years and I have used it just a few times.

The only thing I find exciting so far is the IR blaster inclusion. Even then, without call recording, I’m most likely going to skip this phone and all others until call recording is restored.

I’m exhausted listening to rumours now. Lol. I’m going to ignore them all from now on and wait for the official release. At least 50% of these rumours will turn out to be bs anyway.

It could come with 100w wireless charging and I would still not buy it without a headphone jack so…

You won’t buy one anyway as you complained so much in the past about big phones

You missed the point, mate.
This applies to the Note or to any phone, regardless of the size. Specially when they ask me 1000€ for it.

I would gladly change the 45W for only 25W and keep the headphone jack.

What does Samsung get by killing their fans expectations and excitement?

But Samsung never said the Note 10 would come with 45W.

Considering the rumors true and say it’s a flagship so it’ll be a boom, Samsung removed the headphone Jack and also give it an ugly front look.

So for me, it just not upto expectation(besides hardware) and rumors about Note 10 is not that much exciting too

Everybody keeps downvoting me for saying this is shaping up to be a pretty lame upgrade, but BASED ON WHAT WE’VE HEARD SO FAR…does anybody really find the Note 10 exciting?

I’m not saying it’s going to be bad, but I haven’t seen anything that makes it clearly superior to my Note 9.

Absolutely. And I hope all the boring rumors we’ve heard so far are wrong. Samsung is playing it too safe in a very hot field of contenders, especially if they plan on asking > $1000.

It’s called marketing technique. Then it is revealed that it is 45w and everyone is happy.

Lets remember the lame promised rumor that our S10s would get the 25 watt firmware update. and how its going, may push Note owners to go the way of road less traveled like the S10 LINE.
I am a prior Note 9 owner. At one point almost went the google road.

Wow, another disappointing news. If rumors are true then this will be the lamest Samsung Note ever and therefore should not be called “Pro”
