This article is a few months old but suggests  25 Watt Fast charging may come to S10 models in the future, via a firmware update  though non 5G customers would require a seperate charging device if it comes to fruition.

According to reports Chinese company Vivo  have  produced FlashCharge 120W Technology” which is capable of charging a 4,000 mAh battery  in 13 minutes.  However despite the headline  would not be compatible with any Samsung Galaxy Devices.

In your opinion, do you think any S10 will ever get 25 watt charging via an update? Hardware wise compatible is my understanding.

Yes, all S10 devices are hardware compatible.  Have now noticed that the firmware has started rolling out in China, imagine would go to other markets in due course though cannot be definitive on timescale.       https://www.mysmartprice.com/gear/samsung-galaxy-s10-smartphones-get-25w-fast-charging-support-super...

I personally don't find their so called fast charging; either fast or anything to write home about.  Both my Asus and OP devices charged fully in about half the time my S10+ does.

I'm fairly happy with the charging on the S10 and find it usually charges in about 95 minutes, much the same as the tests on the site https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-s10-battery-life      I find the wireless charging with the provided pad  to be a bit slow though.
