This is the genuine Samsung charger (using USB C PD - PPS tech), and seems to be one of the only chargers that truly fast charges Samsung phones, such as the Galaxy 9 series and even the new Galaxy 10 phones. Most aftermarket chargers I've found from companies such as Anker and Aukey simply do not charge as fast as the OEM Samsungs with Samsung's embedded Secure Element and PPS (Programmable Power Supply) that apparently prevents third party chargers from fully fast charging a newer Samsung phone. If your aftermarket 30W or 60W charger does not have PPS, then it will NOT charger your Samsung phone at the fastest speed.
SE8A is the first power delivery controller with embedded Secure Element for added protection against unauthorized chargers. The new chips support up to 100W-charging and meets latest USB-PD 3.0 specifications.
Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced two USB Type-C power delivery (PD) controllers, SE8A and MM101. With the new PD controllers, power chargers are able to communicate with the device to deliver the optimum amount of power for more efficient charging through authorized products.
Both chips are built with an embedded Flash (eFlash) that allows the flexibility of modifying its firmware to meet the most up-to-date specifications and are able to supply up to 100 watts (W, 20V / 5A). SE8A is the first PD controller in the industry to embed Secure Element, adding an extra layer of security to PD controllers.
