The Galaxy S22 Ultra should charge much faster than its predecessor thanks to the return of 45 W fast charging. Images of the new charger have been unveiled by Roland Quandt.
The famous leaker Roland Quandt has just unveiled the first images of the new Galaxy S22 Ultra wired charger, which will deliver a maximum power of 45 W to the smartphone. As can be seen on the box, the charger will be quite compact and will allow you to connect your smartphone using a USB-C to USB-C cable.
The new charger confirms previous leaks which already announced the return of 45W fast charging on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. As a reminder, Samsung had used this technology on its Galaxy S20 Ultra, but finally decided to abandon it on its Galaxy S21 Ultra, which was limited to 25 W maximum.
Galaxy S22 Ultra will charge faster than Galaxy S21 Ultra
Thanks to the 45 W fast charging against only 25 W on its Galaxy S21 Ultra, the 5000 mAh Galaxy S22 Ultra battery should be able to recharge much faster. Nevertheless, it is worth remembering that The 45 W wired charging of the Galaxy S20 Ultra had been criticized a lot, because it wasn’t much faster than the 25W charge. So it didn’t encourage users to shell out more for the more powerful charger, but Samsung may well have optimized its fast-charging technology during the last two years.
Galaxy S22 Ultra owners will need to acquire a new charger if they want to take advantage of the new 45W fast charging, Samsung no longer including a charger in the boxes of its smartphones since the release of the Galaxy S21. We therefore imagine that the 45 W charger will be slightly more expensive than the 25 W model, currently on sale on the official website at 29.99 euros.
Although the Galaxy S22 Ultra promises reduced charging time, it will be much longer than most of its competitors. Indeed, we know that the OnePlus 10 Pro will benefit from a new 80 W SuperVOOC fast charging technology, and the Xiaomi 12 Pro offers a maximum power of 120 W. For their part, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 + should be satisfied with a quick recharge of only 25 W, like the previous generation.
