We are only left with some hours before Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally unveiled to the world. Even though we know quite a lot about the two phones, we keep getting fresh details with each and every leak.
Yesterday, AnTuTu benchmarks leaked confirming that Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come with a default resolution of 1080p. Now, in another leak regarding the two phones, Samsung has something new for you and this is a new proprietary charging technology dubbed Galaxy S Charge+.
According to the tipster, the Galaxy S Charge+ should be available for use this year and if anything, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be the first handsets to support this technology. With Charge+ fast charging technology, the South Korean tech giant believes that Sammy devices will be able to charge from 0-100% in less than 20 minutes, which is an impressive feat to achieve.

We can’t really tell how accurate this report is and what Samsung used to conclude that the phone’s battery will be full in less than 20 minutes. Given the different battery capacities that Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are expected to come in with, 3000mAh for the former and 3500mAh for the latter, these charge times could vary.
When compared to the current Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge units, where the battery can be charged from 0-60% in about 30 minutes, this is a massive improvement and could just be what Sammy needs in order to make up for the significantly small batteries on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Since some see these small batteries as a major issue, Sammy wants you to have the least of times recharging them whenever you are caught out with that “battery low” warning.
As noted, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be out tomorrow and it is only after their announcement that we can actually confirm the existence of this superfast charging technology. Stay tuned!
