While the cameras and processors of high-end phones are getting better and the memories are getting bigger and bigger, the speed of wireless charging is not mentioned by manufacturers. As can be seen from the compilation below, the shameful silence is not a coincidence, although there have been notable results in this area as well.

When it comes to the latest premium smartphones, we first think of Apple or Samsung devices, and in fact, the specifications of their flagship phones are commendable. However, wireless charging isn't something to brag about: for both the iPhone 15 family and the Galaxy S24 series, the maximum wireless charging power is 15W, which means you have to wait two hours to fully charge the phone. the Telephone square Google's latest Pixel 8 Pro also mentions: Wireless charging can reach 23W, but they still had over two hours of charging time during testing.

Do you have to accept that this will always be a weakness? Well, other manufacturers – Chinese – do not think so at all. For example, the latest OnePlus 12 supports 50W charging, albeit only with its Warp 50 charger. However, the phone can be fully charged in less than an hour. That's twice as fast as what Apple, Samsung, and Google can prove. But devices from, for example, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Huawei also support 50W wireless charging, and of course each company uses its own charger. Honor's latest model, the Magic 6 Pro, also supports 66W wireless charging, meaning a fully depleted smartphone can be charged in just 40 minutes.

And that's not all, as there are phones with higher charging speeds, but they are sold in limited markets. Last March, for example, Infinix introduced its 110W all-in-one wireless FastCharge solution, which can be used to charge a phone to 100 percent (from 0 percent) in just 16 minutes. This wireless charging uses unique low-sensitivity coils with different architectures: fewer but wider coils in the same space, reducing internal resistance and overheating of the phone while charging.

In general, major brands seem committed to 15W wireless charging. They don't take any risks with this, it's a really safe (albeit time-consuming) approach. Higher charging speed requires more advanced cooling systems or a more complex charger with some type of cooling, and – indicates Telephone square – For some reason, Apple and Samsung don't want to risk this.
