OnePlus introduced its first smartphone that could support wireless charging back in 2020 which was the OnePlus 8 Pro. The company was late to join the wireless charging party but it seems like it doesn’t want to miss out on it with its upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro.
As per Max Jambor, a known tipster, the OnePlus 9 Pro will have support for 45W fast wireless charging compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 8 Pro that supported 30W fast wireless charging through the OnePlus Dock.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will also feature reverse wireless charging that means you can charge other Qi-compatible devices such as phones, BT audio devices, etc wirelessly through the 9 Pro by keeping them on the back of the device.
The regular OnePlus 9 is also said to support Wireless charging but there’s no information regarding the charging speeds as of now. A recent leak seemed to confirmed the same news and it even suggested that the OnePlus 9 will have a 4500mAh battery compared to 4300mAh battery on the 8 Pro. Things don’t end here, as the OnePlus 9 will also come with 65W wired charging.
In recent news related to OnePlus, the company has teased a fitness band on its OnePlus India Twitter handle with a promotional poster showing the band with a curved screen. The teaser says “The New Face of Fitness” is coming soon along with the hashtag #SmartEverywear.
