Is this EP-TA800 25W charger fake?

I bought this EP-TA800 25W charger from Amazon and it came without the original package, instead it came with what seems like a OEM package, but the page didn't say a thing it was OEM. I'm a little bit suspicious it's fake, everything seems fine (the phone identify it and fast charge), but the USB-C cable (EP-DA705BBEGWW) that came with it as it says "MA03D CHINA" on one end of the UCB-C metal.

If you have the same model, please post photos of yours.

that is an original charger and original cable. u have nothing to worry about.

the country and lot code are etched into all samsung cables, on past models, these were etched into the USB-A end. they make phones in china and vietnam so they make accessories in both these countries too.

Mines slightly different @JChris  because I'm in the UK.

 

Mine came with my Note 10+ 5G.

 

I'm always slightly dubious from buying things like this from Amazon or Ebay as there are many fakes around. This is why I only buy from Samsung.

Let the official Team here take a look and or visit a Samsung Experience Store  / Samsung Service Centre or use your countries Samsung Customer Support.

Yep, just as a confirmation from someone at Samsung, that does indeed look like a genuine Samsung charger and cable. Nothing to worry about here!
