  • OnePlus 5T to skip Wireless Charging because of Dash Charging

Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus was the one to publicize the fact on the forum. Giving more reasons for not incorporating wireless charging, he added, "Dash Charge gives you enough power for the day with just one charging session". Although the company has admitted that wireless charging has matured over the last few years, but the upcoming OnePlus 5T will ship without the said technology. Given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom. The company is unaware of customer's requirement when it comes to charging their phone battery but they are pretty sure users are just going to fall in love with this feature after they actually use it.

According to Lau, the company prefers dash charge because of the stability, reliability, and safety of power. After a leak-filled pre-launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has changed its approach with the OnePlus 5T. Stating the first reason he writes - "Wired quick charging solutions like ours clearly outshine wireless on quantitative measures".

Why no wireless charging?

OnePlus 5T is launching on Nov 16 in NY and will be available for booking in India starting Nov 21. 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.

Case in point, the Sign-up form requires you submit a short (300-word) review of the most impressive phone you've ever used, as well as a selection of the best smartphone photographs you've ever taken. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. Dash Charge makes that process a bit easier, by letting you top off your phone in a little over an hour from zero. Still, the benefits of Dash Charge seems to outweigh the benefits of wireless charging. The date has been officially announced and this flagship device from OnePlus is declared to go on sale on November 21.

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.
