Galaxy Fold 2 to come bundled with 25W fast charger
Samsung is expected to announce four new high-end smartphones—Galaxy Fold 2, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G—next month. The design and features of a few of these phones have been leaked ahead of the official announcement, but a few minor details were still missing. Now, the Galaxy Fold 2 5G has passed through China’s 3C certification process, revealing its charger’s specifications.
The 5G variant of the Galaxy Fold 2 with model number SM-F9160 has received the 3C certification, and the supporting documents reveal that the foldable smartphone from Samsung will come bundled with the EP-TA800 charger. The charger has a maximum power output of 9V and 2.27A or 11V and 2.25A, resulting in a total power output of 25W. This is the same charger that comes bundled with Samsung’s other high-end and mid-range smartphones, including the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, and the Galaxy A71.
A 25W charger is a step up from the first-generation Galaxy Fold’s 15W fast charger. It was revealed earlier that the Galaxy Fold 2 will come equipped with two batteries (2,275mAh and 2,090mAh), equalling a combined battery capacity of 4,365AmAh. A recent report had claimed that Samsung could launch the Galaxy Fold 2 in only a 5G variant. The Snapdragon 865+ processor could power the second-generation Galaxy Fold device.

The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to feature a larger screen on the front with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. On the inside, the device could sport a larger, 7.7-inch foldable screen with a 120Hz refresh screen, a punch-hole selfie camera, and UTG (Ultra Thin Glass) protection. It could debut with Android 10 and One UI 2.5 out of the box. The foldable phone is expected to come in 256GB and 512GB storage variants.
Similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy Fold 2 could sport a triple-camera setup on the rear with a 108MP primary camera, a periscope-style optical zoom camera, and an ultrawide-angle camera. Other features could include stereo speakers, Samsung Pay, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C port, wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging.
