The likes of Samsung Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30 and the entry-level Galaxy A2 Core that is powered by Android Go are already earning rave reviews and even before the premium Galaxy A70 and perhaps the Galaxy A80 with its rotating camera step foot in the country, stories of the even more superior Galaxy A90 have already caught eye.
Some say the Galaxy A80 will be sold in other markets as the Galaxy A90, but that we can’t ascertain for now. Another development that we also can’t confirm but is already turning heads around here is the potential arrival of 45W fast battery charging tech on the said Galaxy A90 handset.
According to my source, the Note 10 Pro will only have 25w charging, not the 45w previously leaked. The A90 is getting the 45w charging previously written about.

This will get you nearly twice the fast charging speeds on the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy A80 (25W) and three times what you get on the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, all of which have 15W fast charging.
On paper, we expect huge improvements, but it might not be the case if this piece by SamMobile is anything to go by. Still, what baffles me is how quick Samsung is to transition from the newly introduced 25W fast charging to something even more superior at 45W.
Is it because OnePlus now has 30W Warp Charge on the OnePlus 7 Pro, Huawei has 40W fast battery charging on the P30 Pro and other handsets and Oppo recently announced its plans with 50W Super VOOC Flash Charge? Most probably. But given the info we have isn’t straight from Samsung, we’ll have to wait and see how things turn out later this year.
Samsung has been using 15W fast charging tech (Quick Charge 2.0) on its high-end phones since 2014, only switching to the super fast charging tech (25W) this year with the launch of the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy A80.
