Samsung could finally bring the Galaxy S22's charging up to speed

Samsung might be preparing to make a big leap in its charging speeds.

What you need to know

  • A new charging adapter has been spotted that features up to 65W charging.
  • Samsung is reportedly working on bringing 65W charging to its Galaxy S22 lineup.
  • The charging adapter likely won't be included in the box for many regions.

Samsung is mere weeks away from its next Galaxy Unpacked event where it will unveil the successors to its foldable phones, but the company is likely already preparing next year's flagships. The Galaxy S22 may be some time away, but the latest rumors are already pointing to quite an upgrade, at least in terms of charging speeds.

Certification for a 65W charging adapter has been spotted (via GSMArena) which suggests that Samsung is working on significantly upping the charging speed of the Galaxy S22. The charger carries the model number EP-TA865, which closely resembles the model number for Samsung's 45W charger, EP-TA845.

Aside from last year's Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the company has largely stuck with 25W charging for its smartphones, while many of the best Android phones boast 65W and some even top 100W. It's not necessarily bad, as Samsung's phones charge plenty fast, but it does give the appearance that the company is falling behind with charging tech.

That said, the rumor mill has been abuzz lately that Samsung is already testing 65W charging for the Galaxy S22 smartphones, codename "Rainbow RGB."

The certification for the charging adapter helps to corroborate the rumors. However, it's worth noting that the company likely won't include such an adapter with its next flagship in most regions, following its removal from the Galaxy S21 series earlier this year. That means you'll likely have to cough up the extra dough to take full advantage of those charging speeds. Fortunately, many of the best GaN chargers can offer speedy charging at a fairly reasonable price.

For now, we'll have to take this with a grain of salt and wait to see what we get when Samsung announces the Galaxy S22 series.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
