In the past, OnePlus had not used wireless charging in their smartphones. Now the company is said to have a super-fast wireless charger right behind it.
In a week, on April 14th, OnePlus will present its new flagship series at a major online event. The company is expected to launch the OnePlus 8 Lite, 8 and 8 Pro. A special accessory will also be revealed. Because the company plans to release a wireless charger. CEO Pete Lau had already confirmed in an interview with The Verge that OnePlus will now also use this technology after years of waiting.
Technology is fast, but not cheap
After some details first became known yesterday through a loudspeaker, the company just announced wireless charging technology in the official forum shortly afterward. With the help of a series of isolated charging channels, an output of up to 30 watts is possible. The currently fastest wireless charger comes from Xiaomi and also offers an output of up to 30 watts, so OnePlus joins this record. Founder and CEO Pete Lau explained why OnePlus is only now implementing the technology in their smartphones. “We only implement new technologies after we have thoroughly tested them and they meet our standards for a user experience of the highest quality. After three years of intensive research and development, we believe that technology is now finally ready for use. “However, this speed should also come at a price. According to current rumors, the charging station will be charged 70 euros.
Another fact of OnePlus 8
A big problem with wireless charging technology is a rather high energy loss compared to normal charging cables. Not only is electricity wasted, but it is also given off as heat. In the long run, this can damage the battery and other important components. To counteract this, a fan should be installed in the charger. In addition, full performance is only provided when it is necessary. If you charge your phone overnight, the power supply can be slowed down to save the battery. At full power, the battery of the OnePlus 8 Pro should be half charged within 30 minutes, the full charge takes 80 minutes. Incidentally, the size of the battery and other technical details have already been announced in advance.
