Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6's 3C certifications reveal no charging speed upgrades

Sagar, 27 March 2024

Samsung's foldable smartphones are some of the slowest in the industry in terms of charging speeds, and that likely will stay the same with the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 since both got certified by 3C with a 25W charger.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 (SM-F9560) and Galaxy Z Flip6 (SM-F7410) are listed on 3C's website with the EP-TA800 charger supporting up to 25W charging, which is the same as the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Flip5 as well as the Galaxy S24 (S24+ and S24 Ultra go up to 45W).

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 get 3C certified without any charging speed upgrades

Of course, just because the 3C listing for both foldables mentions a 25W charger doesn't mean that 25W will be the maximum charging speed supported by the two phones. However, considering how stubborn Samsung has historically been regarding charging speeds, we wouldn't hold our breath to see even one of these phones - if not both - with support for 45W charging or more.

That said, while the Galaxy Z Flip6 and Galaxy Z Fold6 are unlikely to get charging speed upgrades, we might see the Flip6 packing a battery larger than its predecessor's (4,000 mAh vs. 3,700 mAh).
