Samsung, the leader of the smartphone market on the Android side, introduced its flagship model called Galaxy Note 7 6 years ago. But this device came with a problem that later led to the company’s own CEO apologizing to customers, being recalled, and a version with a reduced battery going back on sale. This caused one of its biggest features to be overlooked.
Galaxy Note 7 came with hidden 25W support!
According to the statement made by Samsung after the problems experienced in the Galaxy Note 7 model, since the battery of this model was millimeter larger than the battery slot of the device, an invisible bending occurred during placement, which caused the battery to explode or burn.
However, some people who had the chance to examine the device abroad before it was collected, say that although it is stated in the box and description of the product that there is 15W Adaptive Fast Charge support, the version of the Galaxy Note 7 that uses the Snapdragon 820 processor offers support up to 25W.
However, unlike other phones using SD 820 at that time, Samsung did not offer Quick Charge 3.0 support neither on its adapter nor on its device. However, it turned out that the company, which uses 25W fast charging even in the recently introduced S22 series (the S22 Ultra also has 45W support), actually took this step 6 years ago.
Allegedly, since Samsung sold its Exynos processor model in many countries at that time and this chip did not support 25W, it decided to hide this support of the Snapdragon 820 model it launched in the USA and some other regions.
