During the day today there were several clues that OnePlus is preparing to launch a smartphone with wireless charging. Now, the functionality that all fans wanted has been confirmed.
It was at the OnePlus community forum that the Chinese confirmed the presence of wireless charging in the OnePlus 8 family. Although the statement speaks of the range, the presentation of this form of charging in the base model was not clarified.
Therefore, the most certain thing is that only the OnePlus 8 Pro has wireless charging. This will be one of the ways the company has chosen to try to channel consumers to the most expensive model.
Wireless charging at 30W on OnePlus 8 Pro
OnePlus has always advocated not introducing wireless charging in its equipment due to the low speeds achieved. That excuse now seems outdated, with the company stating that its technology will have a power of 30W.
According to your data, it will only take 30 minutes to charge half the battery of the OnePlus 8 Pro. To obtain the full amount of energy in the cell, 80 minutes of charge will be required.
With Warp Charge 30 Wireless, OnePlus will guarantee the same charging speed both wired and wireless. Here is the uniformity of speeds that the Chinese has defended so as to be able to implement this technology.
Of course, to achieve the speed of 30W you will need a charger with that power. For this, OnePlus will launch its own wireless charger, as we already announced today.
Presentation will be on April 14
Exactly a week from now, the Chinese will officially present its new tops. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be unveiled at an online event.
One of the few details that still needs to be clarified is its price. Pete Lau has already confirmed that the prices will not exceed 1000 €, but we still do not have concrete values for both equipment.
