The recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20 series has become the first smartphone to receive USB Fast Charger certification. To receive USB Fast Charger certification, the smartphones must support the Programmable Power Supply (PPS) feature of the USB Power Delivery (USB PD) 3.0 specification. This feature allows the smartphone to better manage the thermals while charging, allowing a faster charging experience for consumers. Also, the USB Fast Charger certified chargers are backward compatible with devices that support USB Type-C and USB PD.
“Galaxy S20 series has been certified to be compliant to the USB standards which means Galaxy S20 has met the highest standards in the industry,” said Kisun Lee, VP of Power Solution at Samsung. “We believe that a convenient user experience is the most important value and using a robust and inherently safe USB PD standard ensures interoperability and an optimized charging experience.”
“The Samsung Galaxy S20 series certification announcement is yet another testament to the wide-ranging benefits that the USB-IF Certified USB Charging Initiative provides to the mobile industry, which includes reliable USB Fast Charging capabilities,” said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and COO. “USB-IF compliance means that products were certified to be compliant to the appropriate USB specifications and have been tested for interoperability with other USB products.”
