OnePlus 5T isn't getting the wireless charging technology support, confirms CEO Pete Lau. In contrast, some of the best wireless charging pads market a support of 15 watts of power, but that's only if you position your phone correctly.
Having said that, even if the OnePlus 5T isn't going to feature Wireless Charging, Pete Lau hasn't denied the possibility of implementing it in future OnePlus smartphones.
An attractive promise of wireless charging is that you can just set your phone down on a surface and charge. It may also require a more drastic redesign than we're expecting from the OnePlus 5T, since wireless charging doesn't work well through metal. The company's approach has been to offer technology that best serves the majority of its users, also striking a balance between price and features.
OnePlus is ready to launch a successor of their greatest flagship killer, the OnePlus 5 already.
Reason 1: Wired quick charging solutions like ours clearly outshine wireless on quantitative measures. "Just plug your device in, and Dash Charge produces 20 watts of power, reliably giving a day's power in half an hour", he said.
The OnePlus 5T will arrive in a week, as OnePlus confirmed that it will be announced on November 16 in NY, and the company's CEO just shared some new info on Weibo (Chinese social network). He also believes to use a wireless charger - one is required to keep their device properly aligned on the pad in order to get the advertised charging rates and energy efficiency. The technology has been around for a while, but has been generating a lot of buzz again because of its inclusion in the new Apple iPhones. Wireless charging is an exciting concept that has matured over the years. Hence, the Shenzhen based Chinese smartphone manufacturer has made it crystal clear that it will stick with Dash charge. TechRadar has claimed that a confidential documentation from carrier O2 confirmed that the identical price of the OnePlus 5T as that of the OnePlus 5. We don't know the standard charging time for wireless but we know it is slower.
