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

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

OnePlus 5T to go on flash sale in India on November 21

OnePlus's CEO, Pete Lau, has already confirmed the phone will have a headphone slot, while his company's own Twitter feed has intimated that the device will launch in NY. Pete Lau, the company's CEO, tweeted about the new phone and the tweet hints about the higher price of OnePlus 5T. If you look at the wireless charging pads, it will only provide support for 15 watts of power, which is less than what is delivered by the dash charge.

Pete Lau's comments do make sense since wireless charging needs for the phone to be placed on a pad for it to charge.

OnePlus in its latest blog post not only called out the inferior capabilities of the wireless charging but also backed its Dash Charging, its propriety fast-charging technology. 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.

Secondly, he states that Dash Charge gives users enough power for the day with just one charging session.

So is OnePlus settling with Dash Charge?

Lau updated the forum post to clarify that he had referred to wireless charging technologies based on Qi standard, which has been adopted by companies like Apple and Samsung.

According to Lau, the company prefers dash charge because of the stability, reliability, and safety of power. It also stays cool so you won't have to worry about overheating even if you are using the phone while charging. You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging. In case of wireless charging, given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging can be more annoyance than freedom. This is nice in theory, but isn't as simple as it sounds in practical, notes Lau. He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now. Still, the benefits of Dash Charge seems to outweigh the benefits of wireless charging.

As a product guy, it's exciting to see technology advance from theory to implementation.

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