The Galaxy S10 and its siblings may have only just been released, but Samsung is apparently already planning on tweaking it. Ice Universe, a prominent leaker on Twitter, reported the President of Samsung Greater China as saying that the company is planning on upping the charging power of the Galaxy S10 from 15 W to 25 W.
Samsung could potentially alter this via a firmware update, although it does seem odd that the company limited the Galaxy S10's charging wattage so heavily. The Galaxy S10 currently comes with a 15 W charger though, so switching the charging rate up to 25 W but requiring people to buy a new charger to take advantage of faster charging is likely to annoy even ardent Samsung fans. Regardless, 25 W is still well short of the 40 W at which the Huawei Mate 20 Pro can charge so Samsung would not be making the Galaxy S10 any more appealing in this regard either.
Moreover, Ice Universe also claims the President of Samsung Greater China to have said that the company is planning on bringing a "super night mode" to the Galaxy S10, which may become the alternative to Google's Night Sight, about which we reported before Samsung's Galaxy UNPACKED event last month. Again, this would only be a software tweak, but it would be interesting to see whether adjusted algorithms or processing could significantly improve the quality of low-light shots taken with the Galaxy S10 series. While the Galaxy S10 and S10+ have excellent cameras, they fall short of what Huawei and Google have achieved with their recent flagship smartphones.
