One of the many battlegrounds of Asian smartphone OEMs are charge rate, with Huawei and Oppo reaching between 40-50W for example, delivering a full charge in as short as 30 minutes.
We had earlier reported that reliable Samsung leaker IceUniverse has said the Samsung Galaxy S10 will feature wired charging with at least 20W power.
Galaxy S10 series charging power is not less than 20W.

This of course only gives us a minimum bound, but the number is very far off other Asian OEMs.
Today we have confirmation that the actual number is not very far off that mark.
Reliable leaker Max J has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will support 22.5W charging.
We believe that the three variants of Samsung Galaxy S10 will come with 3 different battery capacities. The smallest variant, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite will have a 5.8-inch screen and will come with 3100 mAh battery. The second variant, the Samsung Galaxy S10, will have a 6.1-inch screen and will come with 3500 mAh battery. The biggest of all, the Samsung Galaxy S10+, will have a 6.4-inch screen and will come with 4000 mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 has a 10W charger, and can fully charge its 3000 mAh battery in about 2 hours, suggesting the S10 could charge fully in an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the battery. Given the competition, does this satisfy our readers? Let us know in the comments.
