Samsung is expected to announce its upcoming Galaxy S11 series in February next year, and already a few unofficial details about the phone's features have been surfacing recently such as support for a 120Hz display, a 108MP camera, and 8K video recording.
Now, a new certification from China appears to confirm that the next-generation flagship device (model number SM-G9860) will be featuring a 25W fast charging capability (via XDA Developers). The certification was issued by the China Compulsory Certificate, and it also confirms a 5G variant for the Galaxy S11.
The phone's 5G capability doesn't come as a huge surprise at all after leakster Evan Blass spilled the beans on this information via Twitter earlier this month. Also, it only makes sense for Samsung to include support for the latest generation of cellular network technology in its upcoming device considering the Galaxy S10 has a 5G version.
However, the 25W fast charging support for the Galaxy S11 represents no huge bump from the Galaxy S10 5G, which has the same capability. Nonetheless, it's still a welcome addition to the upcoming handset especially at a time when most other handsets from rival Chinese brands are upping their charging capability like the Honor Magic 2 with 40W fast charging support and the OnePlus 7 Pro with Warp Charge 3.0.
