Galaxy S22 Ultra Will Offer Faster Charging Than S21 Ultra

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra AH 04

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature faster charging than its predecessor, a tipster claims. This information comes from Ice Universe, a well-known tipster who is usually spot on with such info.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra charging will be considerably faster than the S21 Ultra’s

To make things even more interesting, the tipster says this information is confirmed “100%”, which adds another layer of credibility. He says that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature 45W fast charging (10V/4.5A).

We’re talking about wired charging here, of course. The phone will also support wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging, but the tipster did not share any information regarding that.


It’s possible that the phone will retain 15W wireless charging from the S21 Ultra. On the flip side, Samsung may opt to upgrade wireless charging as well, we’ll have to wait and see.

In any case, the Galaxy S21 Ultra supports 25W fast wired charging. A bump to 45W charging is quite considerable, and not many people will complain about the phone’s charging speed following this, that’s for sure.

It’s nowhere near the fastest charging in the market, though

Truth be said, some OEMs are pushing out 120W fast wired charging for their smartphones, so… this is still a bit slow in comparison. However, 45W charging is plenty fast in the general scheme of things, so there’s no need to worry. Also, it won’t be so hard on the battery as 120W charging would.


If the Galaxy S22 Ultra ends up having battery life similar to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the charging speed won’t matter as much, as you’ll likely charge the phone overnight. The Galaxy S21 Ultra offered great battery life, and we expect the same from the S22 Ultra.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra will become official in January next year. That’s when Samsung plans to unveil its Galaxy S22 series, allegedly. The mass production is tipped to start in November, so the timing definitely fits.
