The upcoming Samsung Galaxy M22 has shown up on the FCC certification website revealing a few more details and connectivity options. One interesting bit is that the Galaxy M22 will support 25W fast charging and that’s always welcome on a budget Samsung phone.
However, according to the listing, the phone will ship only with a 15W charger in the box. This is acceptable since the Galaxy M22 is expected to be a budget offering, and users will at least have an option to buy a 25W USB PD charger from any brand separately.
Samsung has always been very conservative with fast charging on its phones. Baring a few pricey tier-1 flagships in the past that supported 45W fast charging, the most it offers is 25W, even for its high-end phones. Of those that still ship with a charger, only a few get 25W charging adaptors and the remaining ones make do with 15W adaptive fast charging – which is barely fast going by the 2021 standards.
This isn’t the first time that we are seeing 25W charging on affordable and mid-range Samsung phone. In fact, phones like Galaxy M31s, Galaxy M51, and Galaxy A72 also bundled a 25W charger in the box in India.

Going by the rumours and leaks that have surfaced so far, the Galaxy M22 is expected to sport a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate, and include a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
