Report: No 25W charging for Samsung’s clamshell foldable phone

Will the Galaxy Fold 2, or the Galaxy Z Flip as Samsung’s clamshell foldable phone is now rumored to launch as, support the company’s new 25W super fast charging tech, or will it make do with the old 15W fast charging that everyone hopes would just be phased out completely? Well, according to a new report from the Korean media, it might be the latter.

The Elec has published a report that talks about the fast charging speeds that the devices Samsung is set to announce on February 11 will offer, and it claims that all Galaxy S20 models will have 25W charging while the foldable phone will support a maximum of 15W. Samsung’s own software, however, suggests otherwise. Android 10 firmware for the Galaxy Note 9 has references to “superfast” charging for a device codenamed “bloom”, so we’re inclined to think 25W charging will be supported on the company’s next foldable.

As usual, only time will tell what is fact and what is fiction. Thankfully, we’re less than a month away from the launch of Samsung’s newest Galaxy S flagship and foldable smartphone, so it won’t be long before we find out exactly how quickly the battery on the Galaxy Fold 2 will charge.
