Galaxy S22: Unlike competitors, Samsung is in no hurry to offer ample charging speed on devices. As per the certificate of the Chinese regulatory agency, the Galaxy S22 line must support charging 25W (9V, 2.77A).
Information about the cell phone was revealed by the Chinese website WhyLab. The documents inform that the models SM-S9080, SM-S9060 and SM-S9010, supposed codes of the S22 trio, present these technical characteristics.
If the data is correct, Samsung guarantees the same charging speed as the Galaxy S21 line and part of the Galaxy S20 series. The exception is for the Galaxy S20 Ultra that received support for charging 45W.
However, the documents refer to the 25W charger offered by the manufacturer. This means that cell phones are compatible with this speed, but it doesn’t rule out the hypothesis that the devices support faster charging with other accessories.
Previous leaks, cited by trusted informant Ice Universe, indicate that the S22+ and S22 Ultra can support a loading speed of 45W. This way, only the standard variant would have the 25W option.
Finally, as highlighted by TechRadar, the information from WhyLab should still be analyzed as a rumor. Despite showing a screenshot of the certificate of the Chinese agency, this data can be easily manipulated digitally.
Faster speed than iPhone 13
Comparing with OnePlus 9 and Xiaomi 11T Pro, Galaxy S22 can reach the market with an “outdated” specification. Competitive models support 65W and 120W of charging speed, respectively.
However, by placing Samsung’s next release alongside potential rival iPhone 13, the South Korean brand wins the dispute. Apple’s latest smartphone offers charging as little as 20W.
Considering the prices of the Galaxy S line, many customers choose the device due to its high technology. With that, the loading speed ends up being a mere detail.
