The Galaxy S20 series has a few notable features, like being the first Samsung phones to have a 120Hz refresh rate, and now we can add another item to that list.
Samsung's Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra are the first smartphones to receive certification from the USB-IF for Programmable Power Supply (PPS) and USB Power Delivery (USB PD) 3.0 standards. As noted by The Verge, this means that the S20 phones should play nicely with third-party fast chargers that are also certified and can provide the power that the phone wants.
With this standards, a charger must be able to provide power at the right voltage and current that the phone wants. Chargers and phones that are both PPS-certified means that both devices can communicate what power should be sent to the phone for optimal, safe fast charging. If the phones aren't certified, then the charger might not provide the max amount of current that the phone could take.
The Galaxy S20 and S20+ both support up to 25W of fast charging, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra can go up to 45W. You'll need a compatible wall charger to reach those speeds, of course, and Samsung sells one of its own on its website.
Samsung's Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra will launch on March 6th.
