Over the past two years, charging smartphones has become one of the most important yet overrated features. Companies like Oppo, OnePlus and Asus are turning 65-watt charging into a standard type, but on the other hand, Samsung is strangely behind its competitors in this area, and it's time for the company to charge the Galaxy S22 series phones significantly. Increase attention.
A difficult task
Increasing battery capacity is not an easy task, and researchers have long sought to address this issue. Although smartphone makers have increased their battery capacity somewhat over the years, this is somewhat the case, otherwise we will end up with the giant Energizer. Therefore, until further notice, the best way to solve this problem is to increase the charging speed. Even if your phone battery does not last long, it will charge at least fast enough to make the problem less important.
If you look at phones like the OnePlus 9 Pro, you'll come across claims like full charge in just half an hour, thanks to the phone's 65-watt charge. In this regard, we can also mention Xiaomi, which a few days ago introduced the second phone with a charge of 120 watts.
Xiaomi says that the 5000 mAh battery of the 11T Pro phone can be fully charged in just 17 minutes. On the other hand, some time ago, Samsung unveiled the very expensive Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 phones, which use 25 and 15 watt charge, respectively.
25 watt charge was once enough.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra uses a 4,500 mAh battery with a 25-watt charge, and you'll have to wait a long time to fully charge the battery. Sometimes the charging speed is not important to the user, but on the other hand, in some cases, you need to charge faster. Overall, although Samsung prides itself on the high speed of its products, it has nothing to say about charging speed.
Of course, when companies want to use super fast charging for their phones, they have to pay attention to several points. Xiaomi, for example, says it uses 34 safety features for the 11T Pro battery so that this high speed does not cause a problem. Xiaomi, like many other companies, splits the phone's battery into two to increase the amperage and input voltage.
Xiaomi and several other companies are always pushing the limits, but Samsung to some Many are still struggling at 25 watts. So it is not at all realistic to expect the Galaxy S22 series or the next generation to support 120 watts of charge, but at least one analyst believes that Samsung can offer 65 watts of charge for some of its handsets.
Past and present Samsung may hold it back
Samsung is still the largest smartphone maker in the world and undoubtedly has enough ability to increase the charging speed of its phones. But the explosion of the Galaxy Note 7 chain and the multibillion-dollar loss it has caused the company to be conservative in terms of battery and charging speed.
Neil Shah, vice president of Counterpoint Research, says that The story of the Galaxy Note 7 has played an important role in Samsung's strategy for the battery and charging speed of its phones. Over the past three years, Samsung has been able to increase the battery capacity of its flagships and cheaper handsets to 5,000 and 7,000 mAh, respectively, but at the same time has increased the number of phones with a 25-watt charge.
Samsung for phones like the Galaxy The S20 Ultra used a 45-watt charge, but this trend was not continuous and the company's overall approach to this issue was largely inconsistent and confusing. Neil Shah points out that Samsung currently has 200 active handset models on the market, but that number is 120 and 130 for Oppo and Xiaomi, respectively, and that this wide variety creates limitations for the company.
The proliferation of Samsung designs is increasing day by day. Some of the company's handsets are designed and manufactured by the company, but many A, F and M series handsets are left to Chinese companies, and Samsung has less involvement in the design and manufacture of these handsets.
Because Samsung uses different manufacturers and chipsets for its handsets, charging speed is more difficult to standardize than other features such as an old display or a 120Hz refresh rate. Even Xiaomi says one of the challenges with ultra-fast charging is that regulators must be satisfied with the high safety of the phone.
The main point is that although Samsung can offer faster charging for its phones, there are many obstacles in the way, so using the same 25-watt charge for the company's executives makes sense. It seems. However, at least for the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung should significantly increase their charging speed.
Fortunately, according to the latest rumors, the Galaxy S22 Ultra seems to support 45 watts of charge. Although there were reports months ago that the phone supports 65 watts, Samsung seems to have reached 45 watts. Neil Shah says that next year we will probably see some Samsung phones using 65 watts of charge. Of course, these phones will most likely hit the market without a charger.
- 160 watts and beyond; Your next phone may take 10 minutes to charge
