OnePlus 7 will not have this much-awaited feature

Pete Lau is the CEO of OnePlus and he announced earlier today that the next-generation flagship smartphone will not support wireless charging. "Wireless charging is far inferior", Lau told the publication.

However, according to the interview, Pete Lau believes wireless charging is far inferior compared to the OnePlus charging. OnePlus's Dash Charge is one of the most capable fast-charging technologies in the industry, capable of charging the company's phones from 0-100% in about an hour.

OnePlus had entered the Indian market in 2014 and started selling its devices through Amazon India. From a use-case scenario, OnePlus is taking the right step for now, at least until it comes up with a better wireless charging solution. OnePlus had announced past year the formation of a new division to develop Smart TVs, which will be spearheaded by OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau. So, for now, they will not be using wireless charging until the technology gets some improvements and is able to offer much faster charging like the Wrap Charge, if not more.

When OnePlus landed in North American markets, it quickly captured attention with its modern-looking and powerful phones. CNET is reporting that OnePlus 7 won't come with wireless charging support, even though the feature is quite popular and becoming a standard in high-end flagships. And, one of the features, which has become a norm with all the flagships is the wireless charging feature. But at least for the meantime, just including a wireless charging coil that can operate at a measly 5W could appease customers.

Now it's no mystery that OnePlus doesn't see wireless charging as a must-have feature on its phones. Samsung also introduced the technology as a basic component of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in 2015, and it's taking it to take next level with the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Buds' reverse charging feature.
