The OnePlus 5T WILL NOT Feature Wireless Charging

OnePlus 5T will stick to Dash Charge and not feature wireless charging

Lau said that they actually considered using wireless charging technology for the OnePlus 5T, but simply chose not to. CEO also announced that OnePlus 5T will not support wireless charging which seems old school as most of the flagship phones support wireless charging nowadays but Mr. Lau has an explanation for this.

By leaving wireless charging support for a future model, OnePlus has joined the club of Google that brought the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL earlier this year with only wired charging option. And, when the OnePlus 5T is going to be similar to OnePlus 5, it will have the same metal back found on the OnePlus 5 which means there's no way one should expect it to feature wireless charging. The company's approach has been to offer technology that best serves the majority of its users, also striking a balance between price and features. On the other side, the wireless charging produces 15W of power.

Responding to to a query raised by a fan on the possibility of OnePlus "ridiculously" hiking the price of the OnePlus 5T, Lau said that it is a "great product" and that he already has it.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads.

Why no wireless charging?

He added that wireless charging technology needs to get more mature. Lau goes onto say that its Dash charge technology gives enough power that will last a day on a single charge. PVR Cinemas is a pioneer in introducing new initiatives in the cinema exhibition space in India and the live screening of the launch event of OnePlus 5T in NY across select PVR theatres in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune would be the first of its kind in India. It doesn't matter whether you're gaming or streaming video. You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging. The technology has been around for a while, but has been generating a lot of buzz again because of its inclusion in the new Apple iPhones. But, that's not the case with dash charger - you can simply plug-in and use you phone for anything and at anytime.

While eliminating the step of plugging in your phone by just putting it down onto a pad sounds great, I consider it a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
