OnePlus 5T drops the idea of wireless charging, proceeds with dash charge

OnePlus explains why it still won’t do wireless charging The OnePlus 5T won't get wireless charging, and that's fine

As the internet was buzzing yesterday with OnePlus 5T's alleged price, a tweet made by OnePlus's CEO has poured cold water on the rumor. Some wireless charging pads are being marketed as offering up to 15 watts of power, that is if the smartphone is properly placed on the charging pad. Earlier this week he confirmed - via a blog post - that the device will come with 3.5mm headphone jack. CEO also announced that OnePlus 5T will not support wireless charging which seems old school as most of the flagship phones support wireless charging nowadays but Mr. Lau has an explanation for this. All you need is the Dash Charge cable and adaptor to consistently power your device at a superior rate.

OnePlus 5T is launching on Nov 16 in NY and will be available for booking in India starting Nov 21. 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". Ultimately, this restricts you to take a selfie with your camera or play a game.

Responding to to a query raised by a fan on the possibility of OnePlus "ridiculously" hiking the price of the OnePlus 5T, Lau said that it is a "great product" and that he already has it. No, not yet. The OnePlus team has simply clarified that it won't have wireless charging yet as Dash Charge is still the best choice for them.

Will 'Tiger Zinda Hai' be released in Pakistan?
Monsoon Shootout is a crime thriller film starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui , Vijay Verma, Neeraj Kabi and Tannishtha Chatterjee. While the trailer itself received so much of a insane response we can't wait to watch fans reactions when the film releases.

And since Dash Charge is fast, one session is enough to give you juice for the whole day. Comparatively, in a wireless charging, the users will not have the convenience to pick up the device from the charging pad, when subjected to charging. While that was a good news, it was then followed by a disappointment that the phone will not support wireless charging. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. The technology has been around for a while, but has been generating a lot of buzz again because of its inclusion in the new Apple iPhones. Most of the premium smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S8 series and Galaxy Note 8 features wireless charging support. "Wirelessly charging more than one device at a time further divides that number, leading to even slower charging per device", OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau wrote on the company's forum.

"An attractive promise of wireless charging is that you can just set your phone down on a surface and charge".
