Samsung is preparing to push ultra-fast charging

It looks like Samsung is preparing a late batch of ultra-fast charging for its range of smartphones.

Whenever Samsung announces a new flagship phone, you know it’s going to be incredibly well-specified. One area that has had a bit of a blind spot in recent years, however, is fast charging, going as high as 45W — and then only recently with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

All of these can be set to change, if the trademark registration is validated. As SamMobile discovered, the South Korean tech giant filed the necessary paperwork to trademark the term “Samsung Superfast Portable Power” with the US Patent and Trademark Office last week.

The filing states that the term will be used for “battery chargers for portable devices; battery packs for portable devices.”

This seems to clearly indicate that the company is preparing products that will charge mobile devices very quickly. Of course, then, it would make sense that future Samsung smartphones (and perhaps tablets, too) would be able to take advantage of such “super fast” charging speeds.

If true, it would see Samsung make moves to catch up with its closest Android competitors. The Xiaomi 12 Pro supports 120W charging, for example, while the OnePlus 10T extends it up to 150W.

It should also be noted that many of these competing brands will implement fast charging in their affordable phones. For example, the £300 Poco X4 Pro 5G supports 67W charging.
