OnePlus 5T won't come with wireless charging support, confirms CEO

The OnePlus 5T won't get wireless charging, and that's fine

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

For one, the company confirmed OnePlus 5T isn't going to have the wireless charging feature.

OnePlus has been very open about the OnePlus 5T considering the phone hasn't been launched yet, and the latest official news is that it won't have wireless charging. According to OnePlus, the wireless charging pads only have 15watts of power to offer but their Dash Charge can offer about 20watts of power which means it will be faster to charge it the normal way. Moreover, he mentioned that users can not pick up their phone to play a game or make a call during wireless charging so the current standard of wireless charging "brings more limitations than freedom". Apple has been doing away with their headphones and charging but it is clear that OnePlus is not ready to go there yet. The first reason highlighted by the 42-year-old executive points to the proprietary technology that is touted to deliver as much as 20 watts of power to deliver a day's charge in half an hour. So which one would you choose? It may also require a more drastic redesign than we're expecting from the OnePlus 5T, since wireless charging doesn't work well through metal. However, Lau also didn't slam the door on a future inclusion of the feature. "You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging", he explained. "But given the current state of this technology, Dash Charge is still the superior choice", Lau asserted in the post.

" I saw some people talk about wireless charging after my headphone jack post, and some wanted to add some thoughts into the conversation".

Such type of charging makes your phone more complicated to use. For now, it is good to stick with wired charging because of the speed.

To use a wireless charger, the user can just set their phone on the surface and charge. Nice in theory, but not as simple in reality. The CEO admitted that it was exciting to see technology advance from theory to implementation, but wireless charging is not able to provide a better experience just yet. We don't know the standard charging time for wireless but we know it is slower.

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