The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra can probably charge faster than any Galaxy device. Reliable source RGcloudS talks on Twitter about a charging speed of 65W. Nice, but less special than you might think.
When it comes to charging, Samsung is not the fastest guy on the circuit. The batteries of the Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra, for example, charge at 45W, while other devices already operate at 240W. The technology is there, making the step of just 20W not very big.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra faster than predecessors
The reason Samsung could charge its batteries with more power is due to an updated structure, according to RGcloudS. In doing so, he confirms an earlier post by the website SamMobile, which speculated that the Android phone borrows a technology from the electric car.
As a result, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will be chargeable with a power of 65W. There is also talk of support for the Galaxy S24 Plus, but in all honesty we do not think this will be the case. The most elaborate and pricey devices are usually more likely to get this kind of functionality.
To enable the higher charging speed, Samsung may also be working with cooling gel to prevent overheating. Without such a solution, the 65W charging speed will not be possible.
Officially, of course, the news has not yet been confirmed. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is likely to be released in February or March 2024. So it is still too early to say whether the information is correct. But given RGcloudS’ reputation, it is at least worth a mention.

Stacked battery is on track, but limited
Most likely only for 24U & 24+
or just 24U
apple used it on entire iP15 lineup
24U & 24+ have “rated” 5000 MaH
But 24U stacked structure is different
to make it cooler, they applied cooling gel. for 65W & stability https://t.co/8khM2oAToc

Competition is way ahead
Although the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra can charge faster than its predecessors, it is mainly an attempt to keep up with the rest of the market. A charging power of 65W was already achieved by the OnePlus 8T in 2020, for example.
There are even devices currently testing charging power of 240W. Whether that is good for the battery remains to be seen, by the way, but the gap with the Galaxy S24 Ultra is very large in that case.
The only point where we think Samsung could still surprise is in the way it structures its batteries. That way it can increase energy density without requiring more space inside the smartphone. An approach that could significantly change the way we charge phones.
