Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra may have a faster charging speed than its siblings

This particular upgrade doesn't represent a huge evolution for Samsung, though.

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is rumored to support 45W fast charging.
  • It represents a significant improvement over its predecessor, though the phone's battery capacity remains unchanged at 5,000mAh.
  • However, the rumored charging speed doesn't represent a major step forward for Samsung.

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra will reportedly get a faster charging speed after all, contrary to previous reports that claimed Samsung's Galaxy S22 series would lag behind in this key area.

According to leaker Ice universe, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will boast a 45W charging speed capability. If the claim turns out to be correct, the phone could offer the best of what Samsung has in store for consumers, at least in terms of battery capacity.

The phone is also said to have the same 5,000mAh battery as the Samsung's best Android phone from last year. According to Ice Universe, the battery can be charged up to 70% in just 35 minutes. While this is quite fast by Samsung standards, a number of Chinese OEMs, including Xiaomi and Realme, have already been offering lightning fast charging speeds.

However, the charging speed upgrade won't repesent a significant step forward on Samsung's part. It isn't the first time that we see a Samsung flagship phone supporting 45W fast charging. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra from 2020 had the same charging speed and battery capacity, so the upcoming phone may not be a real evolution for Samsung.

Nonetheless, given that the competition already offers as fast as 200W charging, it's high time that Samsung jumped on the fast charging bandwagon.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
