Battery & Charging

Samsung has increased every single part of the Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra over the previous-gen Galaxy S10 family of smartphones, and that includes the battery and charging support. We have some larger batteries on offer, and much faster fast-charging tech that will get you up and running and ready to run out the door faster than ever before.

We're looking at 4000/4500/5000mAh batteries inside of the Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra, respectively. You're going to need much bigger batteries to drive those larger displays, higher 120Hz refresh rates, the latest games, 8K video shooting abilities, and 5G connectivity. All of these things will annihilate your battery faster than ever before.

This is why Samsung also provides faster fast-charging tech inside of the new Galaxy S20 series, with the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ both supporting 25W charging. The flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra supports 45W fast charging, which is as good as the flagship Galaxy Note 10+ which supports 45W wired fast charging.

All three of Samsung's new Galaxy S20 smartphones also support 15W wireless charging. Samsung won't be shipping a 45W charger in the box for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which I really don't like -- I personally own the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G smartphone and it too didn't come with the fast 45W charger in the box and it sucks. 25W charging is great (you'll get that in the box) but why sell a totally new flagship smartphone without the fastest charger out of the box?
