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

After a leak-filled pre-launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has changed its approach with the OnePlus 5T. A tall display with thin bezels, dual-cameras, great hardware and rumoured competitive pricing.

The OnePlus 5T will still come with a headphone jack and it was added that fans can also forget about the OnePlus 5T coming in with wireless charging as well. Stating the first reason he writes - "Wired quick charging solutions like ours clearly outshine wireless on quantitative measures".

While wireless charging is quickly becoming the norm for many modern-day smartphones, this technology yet to make its debut on the OnePlus devices. 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.

Lau mentioned two major reasons for retaining Dash Charge on the OnePlus 5T.

NASA has said previously it is working with a variety of companies to develop technologies for what it calls "urban air mobility". The flying taxi project could drastically reduce trip times by avoiding traffic while remaining relatively low-cost .

Turkey has also been enraged by Washington's support for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia in the fight against Islamic State. Please note, however, that limited appointment availability could result in longer than normal wait times".

'Convincing' email scam is targeting millions of Netflix subscribers
Spread the word and make sure you and your friends and family are not duped by this scam. The email "looks quite convincing" and is "relatively well-designed", MailGuard says.

That's basically why the company didn't even bother to go with wireless charging for its phones, and that means the upcoming OnePlus 5T won't have the feature. Nowadays, students are purchasing OnePlus smartphones and the company is willing to provide a safe charging mechanism instead of wireless mode.

OnePlus 5T will be announced on November 16 at an event in NY.

Recently, Gionee made it clear that it will be embracing 16W wireless charging for M7 Plus, but this doesn't seem to influence OnePlus. This is a smart move on behalf of OnePlus, who are wisely presenting their new handset in a form that aligns with user expectations, and if you're going to be influenced by someone, it might as well be one of the most influential smartphone companies in the world. "You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging". But, that's not the case with dash charger - you can simply plug-in and use you phone for anything and at anytime. Wireless charging is the standard way that all the tech and smartphone giants such as Samsung, Apple, HTC, and LG have implemented. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging.

Further, Lau said that the brand will consider adopting wireless charging "when the time is right". Until then, we will have to speculate on exactly how much one of the most value-based offerings in the smartphone segment will cost.
