The charger has a maximum of 9 volts at 2 amps, which theoretically gives it 18 watts of power. It's worth noting that the Galaxy Note 8 wireless charging technology maxes out at a rate of 15 watts, while the new iPhones can only hit 7.5 watts. It's unknown if the Galaxy S9 will be able to wirelessly charge faster, or even take advantage of a wattage boost.

The Galaxy S9 will be unveiled at Samsung's Unpacked event Feb 25. Perhaps we'll hear more about the new charger around that time.

Samsung declined to comment on this story.
