Galaxy Note 20 series lacks 45W charging but you probably won’t care


Last updated: August 6th, 2020 at 17:58 UTC+02:00

Neither one of Samsung’s two new S Pen flagships support 45W fast charging. This isn’t the news of the day or even a surprising development as far as the Galaxy Note 20 is concerned, but it goes against some previous rumors that had claimed 45W fast charging will be supported by the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. This turned out to be false, so there you have it.

Some of you may want to raise your pitchforks at this bit of news, but the majority of our readers might not care about the lack of 45W charging, at least judging by one of our previous polls on the matter. And fact of the matter is that if you want to buy a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra but you never thought of buying Samsung’s optional 45W charger along with your new flagship, nothing’s changed for you.

None of Samsung’s smartphones that support 45W charging ship with a 45W charger in the box; instead they’re accompanied by 25W chargers. Therefore, if you never planned to buy this optional accessory, you would’ve never used 45W fast charging on the Galaxy Note 20 / Note 20 Ultra even if it did support it. If you did buy a 45W charger ahead of Galaxy Unpacked 2020 for the purpose of using it with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, or if you are a 45W user and you were thinking of upgrading to the S Pen flagship, that’s another matter and you could say you’re out of luck. You can still use the 45W charger to recharge your Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra but it will be limited at 25W.

Does this change anything for you in regards to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra? Have you ever used or cared about 45W charging? Do you think Samsung’s decision makes sense, perhaps from the perspective of pricing/cost saving, or do you view this as a step backwards considering that the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 10+ support 45W charging?
