OnePlus 5T to skip wireless charging, CEO Pete Lau confirms

09 November 2017

"We are excited to be partnering with OnePlus for the much-awaited launch of the OnePlus 5T". Now, the CEO has revealed that the OnePlus 5T will not come with Wireless Charging while also explaining why the company has excluded this feature. It's now confirmed that the 5T will not support wireless charging, and on top of that, it may be sold at the same price point as the OnePlus 5.

As pointed out by Mr Lau in his post, Dash Charge is the more useful charging technology right now, and wireless charging is still some time away from offering the sheer convenience that true fast charging can. All you need is the Dash Charge cable and adaptor to consistently power your device at a superior rate. 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. Also, he pointed out that wireless charging doesn't enable users to pick their devices up to play a game or take a photo. Amidst all the preparation to announce its next flagship phone and the successor of the OnePlus 5, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed a few features of the 5T already. It should be easy but there is a correct way and position to efficiently charge a smartphone with wireless charging.

Secondly, he states that Dash Charge gives users enough power for the day with just one charging session.

" I saw some people talk about wireless charging after my headphone jack post, and some wanted to add some thoughts into the conversation". Instead, it will opt for dash charge technology.

Also - wireless charging is pretty slow, especially when compared to Dash Charge and Quick Charging. Even 10-15 minutes of charging can potentially get you hours of use, and it's changed the way I charge my phone. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. "Given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom". He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now.

Lau further writes that OnePlus phones will have wireless charging support, at the correct time.
