As the post shows, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra might support a charging speed that might disappoint you. According to the certification, the handset will only support a maximum charging speed of 25W (11.0VDC 2.25A). As a reminder, this year’s Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra supports 45W charging speed – although it made little difference to the S22’s 25W charging speed. This means that the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra might have a slower charging speed than its predecessor.
This news should come as no surprise as Samsung hasn’t refreshed its charging technology in the past four years on its flagship S-series handsets. Even the premium Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 launched not too long ago is capped. at 25W load. It’s unclear why the Korean company would still want to limit the charging speed to 25W after shipping the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S22+, and even 2019’s Galaxy Note 10+ with 45W charging.
Samsung introduced 25W charging support on its Galaxy S10 series in 2019. While it might have been impressive back then, the tech world is different now. There are 65W, 80W, 120W and 150W charging technologies in the market, and the brands would test 240W fast charging speed. In comparison, Samsung’s 25W charging speed under the standards 2022 seems over.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra might not have the best charging speed in its class, it might feature a 200MP rear camera.
