OnePlus 5T will not come with wireless charging support, company’s CEO Pete Lau has confirmed in a blog post.
Pete shared two reasons why the company has decided to stick with propriety Dash Charge support. Firstly, he says that wired quick charging solution outshines wireless on quantitative measures. “Just plug your device in, and Dash Charge produces 20 watts of power, reliably giving a day’s power in half an hour,” he said.
Secondly, he states that Dash Charge gives users enough power for the day with just one charging session. “All you need is the Dash Charge cable and adaptor to consistently power your device at a superior rate. It doesn’t matter whether you’re gaming or streaming video. Dash Charge stays cool and power efficient,” he added.
He stressed that wireless charging that does not produce enough electrical juice for fast charging. However, the wireless charging has evolved, especially, the Qi standard. Most of the premium smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S8 series and Galaxy Note 8 features wireless charging support. Interestingly, Apple has also added wireless charging support for this year’s iPhone lineup. But it seems that OnePlus will “consider adopting the wireless charging technology when the time is right.”
