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

  • OnePlus explains why it still won’t do wireless charging

According to rumors, the price of the OnePlus 5T will be the same as the now available OnePlus 5.

He further writes. "Some of the best wireless charging pads market the theoretical potential of 15 watts of power, but that's only if you position your phone correctly".

Pete Lau, the co-founder of OnePlus, pondered on the idea of wireless charging on the company's forum. For one, the company confirmed OnePlus 5T isn't going to have the wireless charging feature. Lau also said that wirelessly charging more than one device on a single pad would result to slower charging times. PVR Cinemas is a pioneer in introducing new initiatives in the cinema exhibition space in India and the live screening of the launch event of OnePlus 5T in NY across select PVR theatres in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune would be the first of its kind in India. Moreover, he mentioned that users can not pick up their phone to play a game or make a call during wireless charging so the current standard of wireless charging "brings more limitations than freedom". Dash Charge makes that process a bit easier, by letting you top off your phone in a little over an hour from zero. OnePlus wanted to keep the OnePlus 5T the same price as the OnePlus 5, but it had to reuse materials to do so.

Here's what's odd: Lau is acting like Dash Charge and wireless charging can't co-exist, when they can. Until wireless charging can reach that level of speed, it will remain my less-preferred option to true fast charging. "But given the current state of this technology, Dash Charge is still the superior choice", Lau asserted in the post.

"Given present day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom". And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. Of course, the CEO didn't want OnePlus fans to get disappointed because of a baseless rumor.

"An attractive promise of wireless charging is that you can just set your phone down on a surface and charge". He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now.

If you're disappointed by the lack of wireless charging there is hope for the future, as Lau finished his post by saying that "we'll consider wireless charging when the time is right". Until then, we'll stick to Dash Charge.
