OnePlus 5T to cost more than OnePlus 5, skip wireless charging

OnePlus 5T to cost more than OnePlus 5, skip wireless charging

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.

He adds that Dash Charge is power efficient and stays cool, and that for wireless charging to be truly convenient there need to be charging pads readily available around your home, which can add up to a significant expense. He talked about the company plans that went ahead with Dash Charge fast-charging tech instead of wireless charging, in a forum post.

The main reason to retain the dash charge technology is attributed to the fact that the technology is capable of delivering 20 watts of power.

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.

Also the CEO has confirmed another feature of the upcoming smartphone. Given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom. "But given the current state of this technology, Dash Charge is still the superior choice", writes Lau in a blog post.

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

Wireless charging aside, the OnePlus 5T retail prices have been leaked as well. 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. Nice in theory, but not as simple in reality. I've had phones that have had it and seldom used it. He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now. Dash Charge makes that process a bit easier, by letting you top off your phone in a little over an hour from zero.

They said that they did consider it and that they will offer it if the time is right but it is clear that they don't think now is the right time.

Pete shared two reasons why the company has made a decision to stick with propriety Dash Charge support.
