OnePlus 7 Won't Feature Wireless Charging, Confirms CEO Pete Lau

OnePlus 7 won’t have wireless charging, it has been revealed.

CEO Pete Lau believes wireless charging is still nascent technology, and it has verified that the forthcoming flagship telephone OnePlus 7 will not sport the feature. Lau asserts that its proprietary charging technology named Warp Charge is’one of the best’ in the industry, and before wireless charging is capable of charging fast without heating up, OnePlus won’t be bringing it to its telephones, together with the OnePlus 7 due to bypass it.

The OnePlus 7 won’t support wireless charging, Lau supported on the sidelines at MWC to Cnet. “OnePlus charging is one of the best. Wireless charging is far inferior,” Lau told the book. The Chinese company is known to pack its mobiles with superior features, and leave out few to keep the price aggressive. While wireless charging has increased in popularity ever since its advent on Apple devices with the iPhone 8 series, its own lack in enabling secure and safe rapid charging appears not to convince OnePlus to integrate it into its own phones.

Lau said that it is working on wireless charging to perform better without heating up, but does not reveal a deadline for launching the feature on its phones. When asked about the recently introduced Quick Charge for wireless power, and whether it’s going to be integrated into future OnePlus phones, Lau chose to not comment. It’s unlikely that OnePlus would embrace Quick Charge, provided that the business prides its own fast charging technician a good deal.

OnePlus 7 specifications (anticipated )

The business has verified that the next flagship is going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. The other specifications of the phone remain a mystery at this point, but we can expect to observe the existence of the Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS on the smartphone. A recent escape suggests that the OnePlus 7 will sport an all-display front and a pop-up selfie camera.

At MWC, OnePlus showed off its 5G model , but covered it with an instance that surrounds the sides as well as large portions of the screen, obscuring its layout. The phone is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and pack the Snapdragon X50 modem to facilitate 5G connectivity. OnePlus is slated to start its 5G smartphone by the end of May 2019, and will price it $200-$300 higher than its predecessor.
