Samsung has certified a new device called the SM-G9810 with China's 3C regulator. This has led to speculation that this product is the Galaxy S11e, the focus of some recent leaks that assert the cheapest S10 variant is indeed getting a successor. (Then again, this phone's model number is SM-G970x, which thus doesn't track 100%.)
By any final marketing name, this phone is not likely to see great strides in charging times compared to 2019 offerings. It will ship with the EP-TA800 adapter, which is listed as capable of going at a rate of 25 watts (W) at best. The same brick is also reportedly associated with the Galaxy S11+, thus potentially dashing hopes of improved energy-storage tech in this higher-end phone of the future.
Interestingly, however, the SM-G9810's new official documentation also describes it as a 5G-capable mobile phone. This may suggest that the Galaxy S11e will have a 2nd variant with this connectivity - or may come with it as standard.
Unfortunately, this theory also opens the door to a further hypothesis that it will also have a larger battery compared to the S10e, which may make out-of-the-box charging with this phone a relatively long-term commitment in 2020.
