When it comes to pushing the fast charging technology, Samsung isn’t the name that probably comes to your mind. Yes, they have introduced a 45W tech for some of its phones but they’re still way behind the competitors who have now touched even 100W.
But if the new reports are something to go by, then it looks like they will soon be coming up with their fastest smartphone charger to date. According to a recent TUV listing that was spotted by MySmartPrice, it appears that Samsung is going to launch a fast charger very soon.
This unit, bearing the model number EP-TA865 was first spotted in Korea in September 2020. Supporting 20 volts at 3.25 amps, it would allow the charger to hit 65W with supported devices. This would make it Samsung’s fastest charger to date.
That being said, it will still not be the fastest charger out there on the market. As we mentioned earlier, there are manufacturers who have already made faster-charging solutions. Manufacturers like Oppo and Realme have announced 100W+ charging tech as well, and they’ll joining the likes of Xiaomi to push this incredible tech forward.
So Samsung’s solution does look a little weak in front of them. But we’re glad that it’s finally coming. Samsung makes some of the best flagship phones out there and having great charging speeds will make them all the more valuable.
It’s also worth pointing out that we don’t know when this charger will come out. However, we’re sure Samsung will charge a good chunk of money for it when it does. After all, they don’t bundle chargers anymore with their devices, at least the premium ones. So, it’ll be interesting to see how much it’ll cost.
We really hope Samsung also manages to innovate and come up with their own version of a new charging solution like Xiaomi has done with the truly wireless charging experience. It’ll be great to have these innovative options around to see and have the best possible solution available to us. They’ll be expensive at first, but we certainly more innovation to make the smartphone market more interesting.
