Samsung’s Galaxy S23 passes through certification with 25W fast charging

It’s easy to get excited heading into the fall as we arrive at one of the busiest times of the year when it comes to consumer technology, with a variety of companies holding events that showcase the best of what they have to offer. But when it comes to leaks, it’s never too early to start, and it looks like we’re getting a little bit of information today regarding the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S23. Apparently the device has passed the network certification and it looks like the phone is being tested with and can still rely on 25W fast charging.

While a 25W charging speed isn’t necessarily a bad thing, many manufacturers producing Android smartphones have long moved from charging speeds below 30W. They’ve opted for faster charging speeds, especially when it comes to the high-tier product line. While there is no right or wrong in this scenario, customers expect faster charging times, meaning their devices spend less time on the charger and more time on their hands. While charging speeds can vary depending on the company, some have exceeded the 100W mark, effectively charging a phone from zero to full in about 20 minutes. This isn’t the norm, of course, and others will take a more modest approach, with charging speeds hovering somewhere between 30W and 80W.

One thing to note is that the 25W charging speed in the certification is only for the Galaxy S23. There is always a chance that the more expensive model in the line will offer improved charging speeds. Currently, the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra support 45W fast charging. Let’s hope Samsung doesn’t choose to match the same charging speed and instead go a step further next year. As for other details about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 line, chances are the new line will arrive with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.

In previous years, Samsung chose to split its inventory, with some units using Samsung’s own Exynos processor while others were equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC. Many criticized this process, especially since benchmarks showed Qualcomm’s offering was superior to Samsung’s Exynos. That’s not even diving into overheating and throttling issues. Of course, we still have some time until the unveiling of the Galaxy S23, which is expected to take place sometime in the first half of 2023.
