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

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

CEO Pete Lau thinks wireless charging is still nascent technology and has confirmed that the upcoming flagship phone OnePlus 7 doesn’t sport the feature. Lau asserts that that its proprietary charging technology named Warp Charge is’among the best’ in the business, and before wireless charging is capable of charging quickly without heating , OnePlus will not be bringing it to its phones, together with the OnePlus 7 also due to skip it.

The OnePlus 7 won’t support wireless charging, Lau supported on the sidelines at MWC to Cnet. “OnePlus charging is among the best. Wireless charging is way inferior,” Lau told the book. The Chinese firm is known to package its phones with superior features, and leave out few to maintain the price competitive. While wireless charging has increased in popularity ever since its advent on Apple devices with the iPhone 8 series, its own lack in enabling safe and secure 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 attribute on its phones. When asked about the recently introduced Quick Charge for wireless power, and if it will be integrated into future OnePlus telephones, Lau decided to not comment. It is improbable that OnePlus would adopt Quick Charge, provided that the business prides its own fast charging tech a lot.

OnePlus 7 specifications (expected)

The company has confirmed that its next flagship will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. The other specifications of this phone stay a mystery now, but we could expect to see the presence of the Android 9 Pie-based OxygenOS on the smartphone. A recent leaksuggests that the OnePlus 7 will match with 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 in addition to large parts of the screen, obscuring its layout. The phone is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and package the Snapdragon X50 modem to facilitate 5G connectivity. OnePlus is supposed to launch its 5G smartphone by the end of May 2019, and will cost it $200-$300 greater than its predecessor.
