Flagship hardware specifications include a 2340 x 1080 (FHD+) dynamic AMOLED 2X, and 120 Hz screen, plus the Galaxy S24 delivers innovative and practical AI features to help transform the way users communicate, create and discover the world. Galaxy AI features like Live Translate, Chat Assist and new “Circle to Search” with Google, to improve nearly every experience that S24 users can enjoy.


The 25 W GaNFast unit delivers 50% charge to the high-capacity 4000 mAh battery in only 30 minutes, while the USB PD 3.0 (Type-C) specification makes it compatible with other Samsung products including Galaxy Buds2 audio, Galaxy Z Fold5, Galaxy Flip and Galaxy A23.


Designed with sustainability in mind, the 25 W power adapter features a 75% reduction in power consumption sleep mode. Navitas’ GaNFast technology is deployed in a high-frequency, quasi-resonant (HFQR) topology running at 150 kHz – 3x faster than standard silicon designs – and delivers a 30% size shrink vs. conventional charger designs.


“We are excited to extend our relationship with Samsung as they continue to develop groundbreaking mobile phone technology,” said David Carroll, Sr. VP Worldwide Sales for Navitas. “Deploying GaNFast ICs has allowed Samsung to create an ultra-compact, lightweight and efficient 25W adapter that can rapidly re-charge the new Galaxy S24 and a variety of other phones and accessories in the Samsung range.”
