OnePlus 5T Will Stay Wired Like Most

OnePlus 5T Will Stay Wired Like Most

Interestingly, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has hinted in a tweet that the OnePlus 5T would cost more than the OnePlus 5, contradicting earlier report that the two siblings would be priced the same. Some of the best wireless charging pads market the theoretical potential of 15 watts of power, but that's only if you position your phone correctly.

Having said that, even if the OnePlus 5T isn't going to feature Wireless Charging, Pete Lau hasn't denied the possibility of implementing it in future OnePlus smartphones.

But, OnePlus is dropping the idea of this feature.

Also - wireless charging is pretty slow, especially when compared to Dash Charge and Quick Charging.

" I saw some people talk about wireless charging after my headphone jack post, and some wanted to add some thoughts into the conversation".

The OnePlus 5T is set to be introduced on 16 November, and leading up to the launch of the new phone, several new information have surfaced.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads. Given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom.

OnePlus 5T is launching on Nov 16 in NY and will be available for booking in India starting Nov 21. Dash charging just needs an adapter and a cable whereas wireless charging includes messy things such as tables, lamps, cables, and the list is long. He also believes to use a wireless charger - one is required to keep their device properly aligned on the pad in order to get the advertised charging rates and energy efficiency. As pointed out by XDA, having wireless charging could benefit a lot of users by allowing them to have short but frequent intermittent charging all throughout the day. Dash Charge makes that process a bit easier, by letting you top off your phone in a little over an hour from zero. It doesn't matter whether you're gaming or streaming video. Still, the benefits of Dash Charge seems to outweigh the benefits of wireless charging.

OnePlus confirmed officially that their next flagship namely the OnePlus 5T will have the 3.5mm headphone jack.

They said that they did consider it and that they will offer it if the time is right but it is clear that they don't think now is the right time.
