Samsung is preparing a new foldable phone called Galaxy Fold 2, and according to a listing at the Chinese regulatory 3C, it will come 25W fast charging. The listing for phone with model number SM-F9160 also confirms 5G connectivity, but we already knew that.
25W fast-charging is not new to Samsung – we’ve first seen it in the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, released back in February 2019. Then they got to the Note10 lineup and is now a flagship standard. While some of the company’s phones come with 45W charging support Samsung doesn’t include the charger in the box.
25W is also an improvement over the first Galaxy Fold – it had only 15W wired and wireless charging, as well as reverse at 9W.
The new device is expected to have new cameras, a Snapdragon 865 chipset, and a notification strip screen, similar to the Galaxy Z Flip. However, sources claim that despite being prepared for an introduction on August 5, it will hit stores in September with very limited supplies.
