Samsung’s August 2021 Unpacked event unveiled the new versions of foldable smartphones, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatch. However, to utter dismay, the event didn’t shed light on the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The recent leak tipped the specifications of this much-anticipated series – Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Plus. To recall, the Galaxy S21 series launched in January 2021. This is making it highly probable that the S22 would be released early in 2022.
Now, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphones have received the 3C certification in China. The 3C listing reveals the model number and confirms the charging capability of these handsets ahead of the official launch.
Samsung Galaxy S22 fast charging details revealed
According to the 3C listing, the Chinese variants of the Samsung Galaxy S22 devices will support 25W fast charging. Even the high-end Galaxy S22 Ultra to 25W charging. However, this is slow when comparing to other flagships in the market. Apple’s iPhone flagships are the only other smartphones to offer limited fast charging support. Samsung probably wants to play it safe and is therefore going with the mid-range 25W charging speeds.
Meanwhile, earlier rumour hint thst the 25W fast charging support could be limited to the Qualcomm powered Samsung Galaxy S22 models. The variants with the Exynos 2200 could get the rumored faster 45W or 65W charging support, which would be nice. However, these variants haven’t been certified yet, so we cannot confirm anything yet. To be noted – the Chinese variants listing on the 3C certification website is powered by the Snapdragon 898 chipsets.
Samsung Galaxy S22 devices carrying model numbers SM-S9010, SM-S9060, and SM-S9080 are listing on the 3C website. These are the Chinese variants, and they support the Samsung EP-TA800 25W charging adapter.
