OnePlus 5T Price Details Emerge; No Support For Wireless Charging

OnePlus 5T Will Lack Wireless Charging

The OnePlus 5T will officially be announced on november 16, and Chinese phone maker OnePlus has confirmed that it won't have wireless charging. The OnePlus 5T will include support for dash charge but doesn't ship with wireless charging capability.

Lau also elaborated that wireless charging isn't as convenient as conventional wired charging.

It is to be noted that even Google has not yet accepted the idea of wireless charging completely since it has not been integrated into the recently launched Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. This is a smart move on behalf of OnePlus, who are wisely presenting their new handset in a form that aligns with user expectations, and if you're going to be influenced by someone, it might as well be one of the most influential smartphone companies in the world.

If you're disappointed by the lack of wireless charging there is hope for the future, as Lau finished his post by saying that "we'll consider wireless charging when the time is right". You also need to ensure that the handset is positioned correctly - or it won't charge. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. For those that aren't local or won't be able to make it to the event, you can enjoy the show through the firm's live stream on the same day. With battery life dropping thanks to phones getting more powerful, we're all used to having to charge our phones every day.

The OnePlus 5T is to feature 3.5 mm headphone jack other than the dash charge.

Commenting on the success of the ticket sales for OnePlus 5T launch event, Vikas Agarwal, GM, OnePlus India, said, "As a young company in the smartphone space, our theme has always been simple: stay humble and create unique experiences for our users".

He added that wireless charging technology needs to get more mature.

"An attractive promise of wireless charging is that you can just set your phone down on a surface and charge". Still, the benefits of Dash Charge seems to outweigh the benefits of wireless charging.

According to rumors, the price of the OnePlus 5T will be the same as the now available OnePlus 5.
