And, the device is considered to be costing more than the current OnePlus devices' pricing ($200-300$ more approximately).
"OnePlus began research on 5G in 2016, and a year later, partnered with Qualcomm to on OnePlus" 5G device development.
If you were planning on getting the OnePlus 7, does this news alter your decision in any way?
But the newly announced Xiaomi Mi 9 and Galaxy S10 5G are going to support 25W fast wireless charging TechRadar explained a few days ago.
You might be dying to use wireless charging on OnePlus but that's not going to happen anytime soon.
"OnePlus charging is one of the best, Wireless charging is far inferior", OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said in an interview with CNET. OnePlus has been able to establish itself as a brand by offering competitive specs of a flagship smartphone at a much affordable price as compared to the premium smartphones in the market. Interestingly though, it might not support wireless charging, even though that is quickly becoming a standard feature on flagship phones.
In other words, it looks like it'll be another year without wireless charging on a OnePlus phone.
OnePlus' stance might change on this technology with its 5G smartphone or the OnePlus 7T, as Qualcomm during MWC 2019 showcased its Quick Charge enabled wireless charging devices. Not only wireless chargers are slower than a wired charger, which can boost a smartphone's battery to 50 percent in 20 minutes, it is also not possible to use the device with as much ease when placed on a wireless charging pad. Lau did not comment on by when the users can expect the improved wireless charging in OnePlus smartphones.
