OnePlus 5T to skip Wireless Charging because of Dash Charging

OnePlus 5T Will Lack Wireless Charging

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau already has the new smartphone ahead of its launch but he is not willing to reveal any details except giving hints in titbits.

OnePlus has confirmed that wireless charging won't be present on the OnePlus 5T.

Although the wireless charging has now been adopted by Apple with the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X, still OnePlus is satisfied with its dash charge.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads. It also introduced me to Dash Charge, OnePlus' now popular fast charging technology. The OnePlus CEO noted that Qi wireless charging is more efficient but has a limited range, while Airfuel (used mostly by Samsung and Qualcomm) is more convenient to use but is less common. In case of wireless charging, given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging can be more annoyance than freedom. At the moment, it's not the premium choice but maybe someday when it's ready, the company will work on adding it as a standard feature. We considered bringing this technology onboard, but we chose not to. "Because it comes down to whether the solution actually brings a better experience", Lau asserted in the post. The main reason is due to the integration of a bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal memory, a 20MP+20MP dual-camera, a 16MP front-snapper, and a 3,450mAh battery.

OnePlus 3 that made its mark in June 2016 carried a price tag of ₹ 27,999 for the 64GB variant in India, and it was later followed by the OnePlus 3T in December (which costed ₹ 2,000 more than the OnePlus 3). In another news, the price of the OnePlus 5T is now reported to be the same as of the previously launched OnePlus 5 - a move that may disappoint OnePlus 5 owners. The company plans to have a live launch event at PVR Chanakya Puri in Delhi at the same time. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, just like its predecessor, the OnePlus 5.
