Like Apple, Samsung is reluctant to compete for the fastest charging solution, preferring a more cautious approach that puts safety and reliability first.
While Xiaomi boasts support for charging speeds of over 100W, Samsung still remains at the 45W threshold, reached on the Galaxy Note 10 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra models. Otherwise, the maximum power allowed for fast charging is limited to a much more conservative value of 25W.
Identified with the model name EP-TA865, the new AC adapter can deliver a voltage of up to 20V and 3.25A via the USB-C cable, corresponding to the power of 65W. At the same time, the USB PD PPS support is mentioned, a new standard that allows real-time negotiation of the delivered power, optimizing the charging performance. But no phone in Samsung’s current offering can use the new AC adapter to its full potential, its preparation confirming only the company’s future ambitions.
If we refer to the previous experiences of Samsung (eg Galaxy Note 7), the acceptance of 65W power for future smartphone models can only come after comprehensive safety tests. Even so, the new Samsung charger will at most be presented as optional accessory, considerably more expensive than the one “recommended” by the manufacturer.
Another possible purpose for launching a 65W Samsung charger could be to pair it with tablets and laptops that use a USB-C connection for power.
