Samsung is planning to introduce a new wireless charger along with the Galaxy S10 it seems, as the device has been certified in Taiwan by the National Communications Commission (NCC). This charger comes with the EP-P5200 model number, and it was actually certified by the FCC earlier this month as well.
According to the NCC listing, this charger will be rated at 12V/2.1A input, which means it can output around 15W of power. This charger will almost certainly be presented as an accessory to the Galaxy S10, but it will be your regular wireless charger which uses Qi technology, which means it will be compatible with all phones that support Qi charging.
The listing also reveals that this charger consists out of two flat-discharge charging plates which can charge two devices at the same time, and the wireless output power supply can reach DC5V~12V. So, as you can see, this charger actually differs from the EP-N6100 wireless charger which was announced alongside the Galaxy Note9.
It has not been confirmed just yet, but it’s highly possible that the Samsung EP-P5200 wireless charger will get announced on February 20 in San Francisco, during the Galaxy S10’s launch event. We still do not know what will this wireless charger look like, but chances are it will be your regular charging plate, nothing out of the ordinary, though considering it will be able to charge two devices at the same time, it will probably be larger than the EP-N6100.
The big day is almost here
Samsung will announce its Galaxy S10 series on February 20, and in addition to that, we’ll probably see some accessories as well, like the EP-P5200 wireless charger. Speaking of charging, it was recently revealed that the Galaxy S10 will support reverse wireless charging, so it will basically be able to act as a wireless charger on its own.
Samsung will announce three Galaxy S10 smartphones on February 20, the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, though it is worth noting that the top-of-the-line Galaxy S10+ handset will support 5G, ceramic backplate, and will be more powerful than the rest of the bunch, so it can be considered a completely separate phone. It’s also quite likely that the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 will not go on sale as soon as the rest of the lineup.
The Galaxy S10e will be the most affordable Galaxy S10 variant, it will sport two cameras on the back, one camera on the front, flat 5.8-inch display, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner. The Galaxy S10 and S10+ will include three cameras on the back, two cameras on the front, curved 6.1 and 6.4-inch displays, respectively, and they will be made out of metal and glass.
Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on all Galaxy S10 variants, while all variants will be fueled by the same processor (two SoC variants). European and Indian Galaxy S10 variants will include the Exynos 9820 SoC, while the US and Chinese unit will ship with the Snapdragon 855. Both of those are 64-bit octa-core processors, and the best processors Samsung and Qualcomm, respectively, have to offer.
