OnePlus 5T won't have wireless charging and here's why

OnePlus 5T launch city teaser

A tall display with thin bezels, dual-cameras, great hardware and rumoured competitive pricing. It has been stated that Dash Charge is a better choice for the OnePlus 5T. Hence, the existing wireless charging technology is incapable of charging smartphones quickly. We've seen plenty of promotion from the company in an attempt to hype up the device as much as possible, and in this latest move, OnePlus is now looking for ten people to review the 5T ahead of its official launch.

Discussing the reasons behind the decision, Lau says that Dash Charge produces 20 watts of power, which can give OnePlus smartphones a day's power in half an hour.

Facebook seeks nude pics from users to tackle 'revenge porn'
Facebook is testing a new system to combat users posting intimate photos of their former significant others for revenge. It was even the topic of a Netflix documentary titled, " Revenge Porn ".

The point here is that wireless charging can't match the rate of power delivery that wired charging can, which is Dash Charge in this case, not to mention that users have to perfectly align the phone and the pad to reach the theoretical output of 15 watts.

"You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging". Wireless charging is an exciting concept that has matured over the years. Lau has also revealed that the company's next flagship will not be featuring wireless charging technology. The OnePlus CEO noted that Qi wireless charging is more efficient but has a limited range, while Airfuel (used mostly by Samsung and Qualcomm) is more convenient to use but is less common.

Moyes named new West Ham boss
Moyes' first match in charge will come after the global break, a trip to Watford in the Premier League on November 19. The former Manchester United , Everton and Sunderland boss said: "I think we've got a good squad".

The Chinese company has already announced that the OnePlus 5T will launch on November 16 in Brooklyn, New York.

Recently, Gionee made it clear that it will be embracing 16W wireless charging for M7 Plus, but this doesn't seem to influence OnePlus.

Axed Luiz faces fight for Chelsea future, warns Conte
This can happen to every one of my players, if I see they are not in good form. Another young player, a really good player for the present and the future.

Such type of charging makes your phone more complicated to use. Until wireless charging can reach that level of speed, it will remain my less-preferred option to true fast charging. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging. However, I believe that Pete Lau has got this right; the technology simply isn't as useful without fast charging. The present state of wireless charging tech brings more limitations than freedom, he added. If users are keen enough for this smartphone purchase, then its charging capabilities should really not be the concern.
