Does my Galaxy A3 (2017) support Fast Charging or not ?

SOLVED

When I look at the User Manual for my Galaxy A3 (2017) I see some entries saying that I should be able to use Fast Charging (although it didn't come with a Fast Charger, the OEM charger has a 5V, 1.55A output):

But when I look at the Settings signposted in that 2nd screenshot, I don't have the "Fast cable charging switch" that's mentioned so I can't activate it:

So does my phone support Fast Charging or not ? Is it worth investing in a faster charger ? I have seen other posts saying the A3 (2017) does not support Fast Charging, but in that case why does the User Manual specifically mention it ?

 

Thanks in advance.

If I recall correctly the A3 2017 does not support fast charging. But due to the smaller battery it is not needed.

How long does it thake you to charge your phone at the moment? With fast charging it is arround 1 hour and 45 minutes for s7,s8,note8. If you are arround the same timespan then a fast charge option would not be much of a upgrade.

Thanks for the advice Tali-K. I am a bit puzzled about why the User Guide specifically says it does when it obviously doesn't, but I guess nothing's perfect !
