Will entire Galaxy S22 series top out at 25W charging speed?


Last updated: October 11th, 2021 at 10:55 UTC+02:00

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S22 series sometime in February 2022, but most of its features have leaked already. It was rumored a few weeks ago that the South Korean firm could finally improve charging speeds on its flagship phones next year and that the Galaxy S22+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have 45W fast charging. However, a new report may point otherwise.

China-specific variants of the Galaxy S22 (SM-S9010), Galaxy S22+ (SM-S9060), and the Galaxy S22 Ultra (SM-S9080) have passed through the country’s mandatory CCC certification process. The certification data reveals that Samsung tested the EP-TA800 charger with all its upcoming phones. It is a 25W USB Type-C charger with support for USB PD and PPS. It is the same charger that comes bundled with many mid-range and high-end Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

Does it mean that the Galaxy S22 series will top out at 25W fast charging, similar to the Galaxy S21 series? Not really. CCC certification doesn’t always include testing a smartphone with its quickest possible charger, and companies like Samsung tend to use their regular chargers with the devices during the certification process. For example, the Galaxy Tab S7 was listed with a 15W charger, but it supports up to 45W fast charging. But it is also possible that rumors are wrong, and Samsung will stick with 25W fast charging for the Galaxy S22 series.

Only time will tell whether Samsung will upgrade from its usual 25W fast charging standard for the Galaxy S22 series. As it stands right now, Samsung is using the least powerful charging standard on its flagship smartphones. Even Apple has surpassed the South Korean firm and started offering up to 27W fast charging on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Most Chinese firms currently use 65W fast charging on their high-end phones, while Xiaomi and iQOO have started using 120W charging technology.
