The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra can be configured to significantly boost charging speeds, though it still won’t mix it up with the best.
Samsung’s flagship phones always have all the latest bells and whistles, but one curious way they’ve lacked something in recent years is charging speed.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 – flagship phones costing over £ 1,000 – support a maximum of 25W charging. To put that in some context, the OnePlus 9 Pro and Oppo Find X3 Pro support 65W charging at about the same time.
However, Samsung could close the gap if a recent statement from a reputable whistleblower Ice universe should be believed.
According to the tweet, Samsung’s next flagship phone will receive support for 45W charging. This means it still won’t charge anything as fast as these competitors in early 2021, and there’s also a small question about what Samsung is “ making Apple ” and chooses not to ship the charger to. box, which is what both of these competitors do. But this is a step forward.
Rather, it is a step back. Go back in time to the massive flagship phone launched before the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, and you’ll find that it also supports 45W charging.
It’s a little tricky to be too worried that Samsung is restoring the specs from two years ago, especially when the new Xiaomi 11T Pro just upped the ante with a 120W charger in the box.
