OnePlus 5T Won't Have Wireless Charging, OnePlus CEO Explains Why

OnePlus 5T Won't Have Wireless Charging, OnePlus CEO Explains Why

Pete Lau, OnePlus' CEO, actually said that the OnePlus 5T will cost less than $600, though his latest post is rather worrisome for those of you who are looking to purchase the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T will officially be announced on november 16, and Chinese phone maker OnePlus has confirmed that it won't have wireless charging. According to OnePlus, the wireless charging pads only have 15watts of power to offer but their Dash Charge can offer about 20watts of power which means it will be faster to charge it the normal way.

Wonder whether wireless charging will make it to the OnePlus 6?

So is OnePlus settling with Dash Charge?

Lau also elaborated that wireless charging isn't as convenient as conventional wired charging. It should be easy but there is a correct way and position to efficiently charge a smartphone with wireless charging.

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.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads. Until wireless charging can reach that level of speed, it will remain my less-preferred option to true fast charging. "Wireless charging is an exciting concept that's matured a lot over the last few years".

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

That will happen on November 21, although we'll know exactly what to expect when the phone is launched on November 16 in New York City. He points out that wireless charging requires you to keep your device perfectly aligned with the charging mat to get the quickest charging speeds, which does to some extent defeat the convenience of just putting the phone down and letting it charge.

To use a wireless charger, the user can just set their phone on the surface and charge.

OnePlus confirmed officially that their next flagship namely the OnePlus 5T will have the 3.5mm headphone jack. The CEO has made it clear that in future, OnePlus may implement wireless charging "when the time is right".
