Samsung Galaxy S10 Might Get Improved Fast-Charging Feature, Hints Tipster’s Cryptic Tweet
As if the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 series wasn’t looking pretty compelling already, a known leakster on Twitter has relayed a cryptic tweet, providing a new detail which makes the lineup all the more exciting. With every new rumor, it is apparent that Samsung is going all out with the Galaxy S10. So far, it seemed that the South Korean behemoth was cribbing Huawei’s strategy of cramming in as many features in the phone as possible, but if the latest information holds up true, the Galaxy S10 series will easily outshine the latest flagships from its Chinese competitors.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Series May Also Set a New Benchmark for Wireless Charging
So far, multiple rumors have alleged that the Galaxy S10 would come with improved photography features, reverse wireless charging, in-display fingerprint scanner, and even a Bitcoin wallet. According to the tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10 phones might ship with faster charging technology, making 15W charging a thing of the past. Apart from hinting that a new standard of fast charging might be introduced with the upcoming Galaxy S10 series, the tipster did not reveal any other information.
The high-end variant of the Galaxy S10 series is expected to come with an in-display reader, which would take up a lot of space under the screen. Moreover, the phones will reportedly not ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. However, this could mean there might not be sufficient space left to incorporate a larger battery capacity.

However, if the rumor about fast charging is true, it wouldn’t matter a lot if the batteries aren’t massive and we’ll tell you why. Currently, Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro supports up to 40-watt fast charging, while OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition was introduced with 30W fast-charging. Looking at the competition, it will be interesting what Samsung has up its sleeve. The Galaxy S10 series has reportedly entered production and will be revealed in February, so it isn’t long before we find out more about the alleged fast charging technology.
