OnePlus 5T will stick to Dash Charge and not feature wireless charging

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

It's quite possible that the company may deploy this technology on its next year's flagship, the OnePlus 6. A tall display with thin bezels, dual-cameras, great hardware and rumoured competitive pricing.

Pete Lau has once again taken to the forum to reveal another big piece of information about the OnePlus 5T: there won't be wireless charging.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads.

Wireless charging is certainly exciting, and I look forward to the day when I can get 24 hours of power from keeping my phone on a charging pad for about one hour.

To the brain, sleep deprivation is 'like drinking too much'
Itzhak Fried is the first to reveal how sleep deprivation disrupts brain cells' ability to communicate with each other . He said: "We discovered that starving the body of sleep also robs neurons of the ability to function properly".

According to OnePlus, their Dash Charging is better as it delivers more power in a lot lesser time. Doesn't matter if you are a OnePlus owner. On the other side, the wireless charging produces 15W of power.

Wireless charging has been around for a long time now but, it became a mainstream topic of discussion after Apple included it in its latest 2017 iPhones. He talked about the company plans that went ahead with Dash Charge fast-charging tech instead of wireless charging, in a forum post.

But, OnePlus is dropping the idea of this feature. It should be easy but there is a correct way and position to efficiently charge a smartphone with wireless charging. Stay tuned with us for more details as the phone launches on the 16th of November. It's now confirmed that the 5T will not support wireless charging, and on top of that, it may be sold at the same price point as the OnePlus 5. OnePlus wanted to keep the OnePlus 5T the same price as the OnePlus 5, but it had to reuse materials to do so. This is because when you use a wireless charger to power your phone, you can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo or do anything else. It may also require a more drastic redesign than we're expecting from the OnePlus 5T, since wireless charging doesn't work well through metal.

Also, wireless charging is not a truly wireless feature, meaning that the handset needs to be placed on a charging pad. Notably, the wireless charging technologies those exist right now do not offer such a convenience. Until then, we will have to speculate on exactly how much one of the most value-based offerings in the smartphone segment will cost.
