Samsung is testing new, faster 65W wired charging solution and it looks like it will be ready in time for the Galaxy S22 series in early 2022.
The information comes from tipster Tron, who’s got a decent track record. Rainbow is the codename for the Galaxy S22 series, with R being the vanilla model, G the Plus and B the Ultra.
Hearing 65W in test phase for Rainbow RGB…

We first saw the 65W charger Samsung has in the works back in January, while in February it was certified with a maximum charging speed of 3.25 Amps at 20 Volts.
It’s high time Samsung moved past the 25W charging speed it has topped its Galaxies at. There was that brief stint at 45W, which ultimately proved about as fast as the 25W – about 1 hour to top up a Galaxy Note10+ at the time.
The biggest question now is whether Samsung will supply the beefy charger in the box. Smart money is on it being a paid-for accessory.
