We are less than a month from the official unveiling of Samsung’s new flagship smartphone. The company has already confirmed that it will launch the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7 Unpacked event in New York City. But the leaks are already flowing including a centered hole-punch Infinity-o display, no headphone jack, and a shiny blue-purple pearlescent color scheme.
As for charging, the Galaxy Note 10+ will support Samsung’s new 45W fast charging. However, Samsung won’t be including a 45W charger inside the box and is instead planning to bundle in a 25W charger (EP-TA800).
This information has been confirmed by an official certification of the device which took place in China. The device received its 3C certification, which is China’s official certification body, and this type of certification process usually reveals charging specs of the device.
We’ve tested and torn down the exact 25W Charger (EP-TA800) previously which drops the tech giant’s proprietary AFC protocol and embraces USB PD 3.0 PPS as its only supported fast charging protocol. The USB PD 3.0 PPS charger features fixed steps at 5V/3A and 9V/2.77A, and variable PPS steps at 3.3-5.9V/3A and 3.3-11V/2.75A.
It is a little disappointing for those hoping to benefit from maximum charging speeds with the in-box charger. But the 45W charger can be purchased separately.
