OnePlus 5T Will be Lacking Wireless Charging, Confirms OnePlus

OnePlus 5T launch city teaser

In a post on OnePlus' forum, Lau explained that wireless charging won't make an appearance on the OnePlus 5T, because it's too restricted; it isn't as simple as slapping a handset on a charger and letting it juice up. Today, Lau has again confirmed that the much-anticipated wireless charging feature won't be available on OnePlus 5T. Unlike OnePlus' Dash Charge, wireless charging pads in the present market support a maximum of 15 watts of power, OnePlus says, which is also subject to the position and number of devices on the pad. Now that even Apple has incorporated wireless charging, OnePlus 5T is speculated to have it. However what is unclear is the pricing of the phone, which last we heard could be kept under $600, with some rumors suggesting that it could be priced the same as the OnePlus 5 whose base model starts at $479. And all the users should use dash charging as it is clearly the faster alternative. Most of the premium smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S8 series and Galaxy Note 8 features wireless charging support.

Well, either way the OnePlus 5T wouldn't come with wireless charging because it's going to be similar to the OnePlus 5, with the difference in screen size and probably battery capacity and an upgrade to rear cameras.

Recently, Gionee made it clear that it will be embracing 16W wireless charging for M7 Plus, but this doesn't seem to influence OnePlus.

He added that wireless charging technology needs to get more mature.

Although no launch date has been unveiled for the OnePlus 5T, a series of leaks and press statements have given tech watchers a clear idea of what to expect from the updated Android phone. He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now.

Their Dash Charge technology produces 20W of power which "reliably" gives a day's power in half an hour to their device.

"We'll consider adopting when the time is right". 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.
