Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ 3C certification disappointing fast charging capabilities


  • Samsung Galaxy S23 series in the works
  • The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus have bagged 3C certification
  • The 3C listings reveal that these devices may support 25W charging

Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ have received approval from the 3C authority of China. As usual, the 3C certification has revealed the fast-charging capabilities of both flagship phones. The Galaxy S23 Ultra was also approved by the 3C last week. These certifications show that the Galaxy S23 lineup may offer the same charging speeds as the Galaxy S22 series.

The Galaxy S23 series rumours have claimed that it will be driven by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is expected to debut in November. The S22 series was made official in February this year. Hence, it is likely that the Galaxy S23 lineup will break cover around the same time next year.

Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus spotted at 3C certification

Two Samsung phones with SM-S9110 and SM-S9160 model numbers have surfaced in the database of China’s 3C. It can say based on recent reports that these are nothing but the Chinese variants of the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23+ smartphones. The Galaxy S23 Ultra appeared with SM-S9180 model number on 3C last week.

The 3C certification of the Galaxy S23 and S23+ show that they ship with an EP-TA800 charger, which carries support for 25W charging. The Galaxy S22 and S22+ also support 25W charging. The S23 Ultra was also spotted with the same charger at 3C. However, it is likely that the Ultra model may offer the same 45W charging capabilities as the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Major smartphone OEMs from China are offering 80W to 200W fast charging on their smartphones. Hence, it is disappointing to see that there will be no upgrade in the fast-charging department on the S23 lineup. Tipster Ice Universe recently claimed that the Galaxy S23 and S23+ will have the same display, camera sensor, and battery as the S22 and S22+. As far as the Galaxy S23 Ultra is concerned, it will offer two major upgrades, such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and a 200-megapixel camera over its predecessor.
